Parking at Chestnut Hall

All non UNT students must purchase a parking pass through the UNT Parking and Transportation office at the following web address, www.unt.edu/transit and then click on “Buy Permits.”  The cost of the day pass is $5 and must be printed off prior to arriving at the testing center or you may not be allowed to test.

To avoid being ticketed, UNT students must either purchase a parking permit (about $5/day) at the nearby Sullivant Safety Center, or park off campus. However, frequent testers should note that visitor permits will only be issued twice, with subsequent visits requiring examinees to either park off campus, at the metered parking, or purchase a parking permit at the Sullivant Safety Center, which opens at 7:30am.  *Off-campus parking for those arriving early can be found on Hickory Street and then walk over two streets to Chestnut Hall.

Taking a paper based test from another university.

All testers are also required to bring a valid state ID or passport, but paper and pencils will be provided. However, no scantrons are provided for should you institution require on, you are responsible for all other materials, including a calculator, etc. Distance learning exams are administered Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, excluding holidays.
