Purchase a Day Pass

Think you will be here for longer than two hours? Purchase a Day Pass for $5 with UNT Transportation Services and park in Eagle lots. Visit the UNT Parking Portal and login with your EUID or create a guest account to purchase a pass. You will need to bring a printed copy of your day pass to put on your dashboard when you come to campus for your visit.
