Parking Information for the 2018-19 academic year

Parking permit decals are now on sale through the Department of Public SafetyDecal pricing for this academic year remains the same as the past year.

In addition, thanks to the generosity of Denton Bible Church, we will provide FREE PARKING for the remote parking area in the church’s lot at 2300 E. University Drive this year. No decal will be required to park in this lot, which will be serviced by TWU’s remote shuttle.

The shuttle will also pick up/drop off at TWU’s North Remote Lot (corner of University Drive and Frame/Woodland Streets). Parking in the North Remote Lot requires a decal.

TWU’s shuttle service is free for the TWU community. Starting on Monday, August 27, 2018, the shuttle will run Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m. – 6 p.m. Please see the remote parking and shuttle website for more information.

Also, the Denton campus’s first parking garage is on schedule to open in late October/early November.  The garage will have decal parking and hourly parking spaces. If you purchase parking permits now and then choose to park in the new garage, you will be issued a new prorated garage parking permit and receive a credit for any valid parking permit purchased previously this academic year.

While we are looking for ways to keep the new garage parking fees as low as possible, the fees to park in this garage will be higher than the parking permits for other lots around campus.

We have hired Watry Design, Inc., a nationally recognized parking planning firm, to conduct a parking study for our Denton campus. Watry will review our parking allocations, current parking fees and future maintenance and operational needs. Over the years, TWU has kept parking fees low by pulling funds from other sources to supplement parking lot maintenance and operations (lighting, patrol, repairs, etc.). This approach, however, has not kept up with parking growth and resulting expenses.

As soon as we have the results of Watry’s parking study, we will form a campus-wide committee, comprised of faculty, staff and students, to review the study and make formal recommendations to the Chancellor this year, with the new parking plan implemented during the next academic year.

Finally, TWU continues to experience a multitude of campus improvements in Denton, and as these projects progress, we will make every effort to balance the impact on adjacent parking and university operations, always focusing on campus safety first.  You will receive updates regarding these projects and any impact on parking on Inside TWU Online.

We thank you for your continued patience as we expand our Denton campus to better serve students and the members of our TWU community.
