Parking and Transportation


There are a number of surface parking lots near 1901 Main Street, home to UNT Dallas College of Law for the 2018-2019 academic year. The law school does not recommend one parking provider over any other; however, students interested in covered parking can consider the Elm Street Garage, located at the corner of Main Street and Harwood, which has covered parking, and a covered and enclosed sky bridge connection to the law school building located at 1901 Main Street.

Effective with the 2019-2020 academic year, most law school operations, including almost all classrooms, will be located in the historic Municipal Building, located at the intersection of Main Street and Harwood. There is no covered sky bridge connecting to the Municipal Building from the Elm Street Garage, or from any other parking provider.
