The Sky Theater Planetarium @ UNT is located in the Environmental Sciences Building on the University of North Texas campus at 1704 W. Mulberry St in in Denton, TX.

Parking

Cars, Vans, and Small Busses

The closest parking lot is Eagle Commuter 7 (E7). There are several ways to purchase parking:

  • Advanced Visitor Parking Permit: A visitor parking permit can be purchased for $5 online by logging in here or creating a guest account. The passes are good in all orange Eagle Lots and in Faculty Lot FS-11 in spaces marked "Visitor" (Map below).
  • Parkmobile app: You will need to download the Parkmobile App (Google Play | iOS ) on your smart phone and register it with your vehicle. These passes are good only in Parkmobile lots (See Map and Map key). Rates can vary some but are around $2.70/hr
  • Free Parking: Parking on the side of the road on Hickory and Oak St is free and open spots can usually be found after 5pm or on weekends.

There are also parking garages but these on the South-East part of campus and a bit of a walk to Sky Theater. Large groups attending during normal buisness hours might want to plan ahead to use these as the E7 lot generally fills up. For more, up to date information on parking, visit UNT's visitor parking information website. A full campus parking map can be viewed here. A visitor guide to UNT parking is also available.

Large Busses

Busses should unload on the west side of the Environmental Science building in lot FS-11 shown in Parking Map.

Busses should park at UNT Lot 35 (See Bus Parking Map below) and plan on returning to the Environmental Science building about 45 minutes after the reservation time. Busses may also park at the Walmart North of Campus on UNiversity Drive which is just a few miles north of campus (probably the best place to park). There is no other space available for bus parking. Drivers should plan to stay with the bus.
