If you are planning to carpool, you should know that the University of North Texas is one of the few universities nationwide to maintain an online carpooling system. UNT students, faculty, and staff can sign up for carpooling online using the Rideshare service. If you are interested in signing up for Rideshare, visit www.alternetrides.com.
You must have a permit to park in campus parking lots. The Eagle Commuter parking pass is good for students who come multiple times a week to campus during the day.. If you only have evening classes, you can purchase an Evening Permit. If you are only on campus once a week or less it may be good to use the Highland Street Garage on campus instead of getting a semester long parking permit. You can find hourly rate for the garage here. For more information and how to purchase a parking permit you can visit the UNT Transportation site.
The UNT Shuttle offers quick and dependable transportation throughout the campus as well as to surrounding apartment complexes at designated stops.
