General Parking Questions

Where can I park?

Parking maps are available here: https://twu.edu/maps/.

I thought I would have a guaranteed spot on campus. Can I get a refund?

Parking permits allow students, faculty and staff to park on campus. However, parking availability and the proximity of parking is not guaranteed.

I'm visiting campus over the weekend without a permit. Will I be ticketed?

Parking enforcement occurs 7 a.m. through 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

Do not park in spaces marked reserved, state vehicle, fire lane and yellow curbs.

I am changing vehicles. Do I need to buy a new permit?

No, your TWU parking permit belongs to you, not the vehicle. However, you will need to register your new vehicle. While the permit doesn't belong to the vehicle the vehicle does need to be registered with the parking office.

Simply peel off your decal and place it on the bottom passenger side of your new car’s windshield. Lost, stolen or damaged decals should be reported to the parking office as soon as possible. Replacement decals are available.

Register your new vehicle

Denton Parking Garage Questions

How much is Denton Garage parking?

Parking prices for TWU’s Denton parking garage are:

  • Denton General Garage Parking: $350/year
  • Reserved Parking: $525/year
  • Daily Permit: $16/day

How was the Denton parking garage price determined?

Parking garages cost a lot more than surface parking to maintain. The Oakland Complex parking charge is the minimum price to pay for maintenance out of parking fees without relying on tuition. TWU has the advantage of paying for this garage out of reserves, rather than borrowing money, as has been the case at other universities. Therefore, no finance cost is included in the pricing.

How does the cost of TWU’s Denton garage parking compare to other universities?

When determining pricing for the Denton garage parking at a maintenance-only level, TWU leadership surveyed other local universities’ parking costs. TWU’s price is one of the least expensive in the region, including at rural campuses such as Tarleton State University and Stephen F. Austin State University.

Is free parking available nearby?

Yes! Free parking is available at the Lot on Frame St. and Woodland St. across from University Dr. View the parking maps for details.
