UNT Faculty and Staff parking permits go on sale April 24

The most popular parking permits for faculty and staff will remain the same price for the 2024-25 academic year.

The change with the biggest impact is that a new parking permit will be added for faculty and staff that will result in a change to who can park in the Union Circle Garage. The new UCG permit is $400 and valid for the entire 2024-25 academic year and summer 2025.

Student commuter and resident permits will not go on sale until late June or early July. More updates regarding student permits will be posted here and on our social media channels: @UNTTransit on Instagram, Facebook, and X (Twitter).

To purchase a UNT permit, go to our parking portal. Faculty and staff can begin to purchase their permits for 2024-25 on April 24, 2024. Sales will remain open through the upcoming academic year, but some parking permits may sell out (typically the permits that sell out are student permits).

Here is what UNT faculty and staff need to know for their 2024-25 parking permits:

  • The only parking permit with a slight increase next academic year is the HSG-Reserved specifically for first floor reserved parking in the Highland Street Garage. That permit is already on a waitlist.
  • For those who purchase the A (reserved) parking permit, we are now selling them on a first-come, first-served basis. This will help us more quickly address waitlists.
  • F/S permits have been accepted in the Union Circle Garage but in the coming academic year faculty and staff must have a UCG permit to park in the garage. The permit is valid on the covered floors (1st and 2nd).
  • After 5:30 pm, any UNT parking permit may park on the 1st and 2nd floors of the Union Circle Garage, as is the case with most other UNT parking lots.
  • The third floor of the Union Circle Garage will be for payment by ParkMobile app only. This applies at all times.
  • The Union Circle Garage permit is $400 and valid for the entire 2024-25 academic year and summer 2025. This permit will not be oversold. Parking staff will monitor the lot to ensure spaces that are paid for remain open. Violators are subject to ticketing and/or towing.
  • We are reconfiguring some parking lots to allow for more spaces. Mostly this applies to student parking lots but Lot 10 next to the Chemistry building will have 15 spaces converted to allow for F/S permits.
  • To make more effective use of parking, especially in lots that do not get filled, our office has partnered with ParkMobile for pop up parking spots. These spots will be active in Lot 24, between Crumley and BLB, and Lot 8, behind Bruce Hall. Starting with fall 2024, you can sign into your ParkMobile app account to find these lots and pay for a spot. Pricing is $3.75/hour.

As a reminder, for those faculty and staff who use payroll withdrawal, your 2024-25 permits charges will start in October 2024, even if you purchase your permit early through the portal using the payroll withdrawal method.

Should you have any additional questions about faculty and staff related parking permits or parking in general, please connect with us at 940-565-3020,, or at our office on the first floor of the Highland Street Garage.

Toys for Tickets logo with Scrappy and LuckyOur department helped make it a bit easier for our campus community to pay off their citations, while also giving back to children in need through this year's Toys for Tickets.

The program has now concluded for 2023, but we hope to continue it for years to come!

This year, we collected 287 toys through the program -- a big success!

We will continue to look for ways to help our students and the community through future programming. Stay tuned!!

Home Football Game Day bus service at UNT

Mean Green Plus Route click for PDFHome football games at UNT always bring excitment from fans -- and traffic. In order to best serve our students who live in Victory Hall or who need to get to the DATCU Stadium area, the weekend Mean Green Plus (Path A) bus will have a modified route on the Saturdays of each game day.

Click on the image at right for the regular Mean Green Plus bus schedule, which will skip the #5 stop at Victory Hall starting 3 hours before the game begins until 1 hour after it ends.

During this time, its last stop will be at the Fouts Transfer station in Lot 20. From there, students can ride their bikes or walk across the parking lot and across the pedestrian bridge to the Stadium/Victory Hall areas. A limited ADA shuttle will operate during the game between the Fouts Transfer station and DATCU Stadium. E-ride will also be in service that evening by calling 940-565-3014. Click here for the details on e-Ride. We apologize for the inconvenience. Having this restriction prevents the bus from getting stuck in traffic, which would greatly delay its schedule.

 A full list of UNT bus routes and the service calendar for the year can be found on the DCTA website here.
