Denton campus parking changes

There are a few changes to parking on the Denton campus that you need to be aware of. Signs at the entrance to many parking lots will indicate which decals are permitted there, instead of colored curbs.

Specific designations include:

  • FS C: Faculty/Staff and Commuter
  • FSR: Faculty/Staff Reserved
  • FS: Faculty/Staff Only
  • R: Resident
  • G: Denton Garage

Additionally, some lots are being reassigned as follows:

  • Pioneer Lot (large lot north of the Dining Hall): R, with 10 FSR spots
  • Jones Hall Lot (southeast corner of Bell/Administration Dr.): FSR only
  • Woodcock Hall spaces (along Old Main Circle): 14 FSR spots
  • Marketing Lot (southeast corner of Austin/3rd): FS
  • ROTC Lot (east of Frame St., north of Schmitz Ave.): no decal required
  • Pirtle Lot (623 Pirtle St., corner of Pirtle/Frame): no decal required

The two no-decal-required lots will provide 165 free parking spots on campus. Parking is available first come/first served. Parking at the remote off-campus lots, including the one at Denton Bible Church, has been suspended because we are unable to provide shuttle service due to social distancing requirements.
