Park in a free lot

Two on-campus lots offer free (no decal required) parking:

  • Parking lot in front of the ROTC building (east of Frame St., north of Schmitz Ave.)
  • Pirtle lot, located at 623 Pirtle Street (corner of Pirtle/Frame)

TWU students with a valid parking permit can park in any lot after 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.

  • Excludes the visitors’ lot, yellow curbs, fire lanes, reserved spaces and state parking

Confirm that your decal is current and displayed properly

  • Your decal must be completely attached to the bottom right corner (passenger side) of your front windshield. Do not tape or prop your decal on the dashboard.

Consider public transportation

Come early

  • Traffic patterns peak between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. If your classes or events are during this time period, allow for extra time for finding a parking spot.

Double check where you park

In order to avoid a TWU parking ticket or a city citation:

  • Double check the designation of the lot where you’ve parked (see sign at entrance to lot)
  • Don’t park too close to stop signs or block driveways when parking on city streets
