Parking Updates

January 2019 lot closures and parking changes

In preparation for the construction of the new research building near the intersection of Bell Avenue and Texas Street, and because of expanded construction near Pioneer Hall, the parking lot immediately south of the Undergraduate Laboratory Building (ULB) as well as 50 parking spots adjacent to Pioneer Hall will be closed prior to the beginning of the Spring 2019 semester.

More details regarding construction, parking, vehicle and pedestrian traffic will be provided early in January 2019. 

The North Remote Parking Lot near Frame Street and University Drive and the Denton Bible Church remote lot at 230 E. University Drive will remain available for parking. Shuttle service to and from the Denton campus will be available on the first day of classes, January 14, 2019. Additionally, parking spaces remain available in the Oakland Complex, and permits for those spaces will be prorated for the remainder of the academic year.

Spring 2019 Construction Information

P3 Dining Facility

As noted in the original construction notice regarding fencing for the new Dining Facility, north of Pioneer Hall, the contractor will be expanding the fencing for the construction area in early January 2019. The existing fence will be moved north, into the parking lot, enclosing approximately 50 additional parking spaces.  This will leave 97 parking spaces available for use in the north parking lot in addition to the 8 accessible spaces and loading zone along Bell.  More detailed information will be provided early January.

 Should you have any questions or concerns about this construction project please contact Donald Strickland – Director, Construction Services.

New Science Research Building

In preparation for the construction of the new science research building, located at the intersection of Bell Avenue & Texas Street, the parking lot just south of the Undergraduate Laboratory building (ULB) will be taken offline prior to Spring 2019 classes. More details regarding construction location, fencing, parking, and vehicle and pedestrian traffic regarding this project will be provided early January 2019.

 This project is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2020. Please contact Alex Thomas, Director, Planning & Design Services, should you have any questions regarding this project.

Alternate Parking Options

As a reminder, there are parking spaces available in the new Oakland Complex and purchase of a permit for that facility will be prorated for the remainder of the year. Permits can be purchased at the TWU Department of Public Safety (Parking office), located inside the Oakland Complex. Should you possess a current parking decal for the year and desire parking in the facility, a discounted price will be extended upon return of the original decal to TWU Parking, in conjunction with your purchase.

In addition, both the North Remote Parking Lot (Frame/University Dr.) and the Denton Bible Church remote lot (230 E. University Dr.) will be available for parking, as well. Shuttle service to and from the Denton campus will be available as of the first day of classes, January 14, 2019. (More information regarding the remote lots, shuttle schedules, pickup and drop-off locations, etc. can be found on the Parking website.)
