Parking Map

Please be mindful that there are only limited number of visitor parking spaces and availability can vary day-to-day due to different events taking place on campus. Please come in as few vehicles as possible and try to arrive early to allow time to find a space.

*Please note that parking polices do change. So if you are booking well in advance, you might consider checking back in closer to the time of your reservation.

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 near the corner of 35E and 380 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.

Bus parking requires that you completed this linked form.
