In the past, TWU kept parking fees low by pulling funds from other sources to supplement parking lot maintenance and operations, such as lighting and repairs. In 2018, the university’s administration determined this approach was no longer feasible and plans were put in place to increase prices in 2020. To align with these new prices, more parking options are available, including reserved surface spots and free parking in select lots.

Temporary Permits/Dorm Guest Permits

TWU now offers daily temporary permits available for purchase online:

  • $10/day for Denton surface lots and on the Dallas campus
  • $16/day for Denton garage

Purchase of a permit does not guarantee a space, and refunds are not available.

Dorm guests should purchase a temporary permit, use ParkMobile lots, park on the streets off-campus, or park on campus when permits are not enforced (weekends, M-F 6 p.m. - 7 a.m.)

ADA Parking

TWU ADA permits are required to park in campus ADA spaces. If you have ADA parking privileges, you will need to provide proof of eligibility to the TWU Parking Office, even if you did so last year. Forms of proof include your VTR-214 form, hang tag or registration with driver’s license. You can send scans or photos of your proof via email to

Vehicles without a TWU ADA permit parked in ADA campus spots will be ticketed.


Motorcycle-specific permits are no longer. You will need to purchase a TWU parking decal and display it in a lockable permit holder attached to your motorcycle. 

Motorcycles may park in any space marked motorcycle or according to the permit they're displaying.
