Welcome to the University of North Texas Health Science Center! Whether you are here to attend an event, visit one of our clinics, or visit a friend or family member, we hope your visit will be a pleasant one.
Please take a moment to read the following information to know how and where to park while visiting our campus.
Please note: Visitor spaces are for visitors to the University only. Students, employees, and others who are associated with the University are prohibited from using these spaces.
Visitor Temporary Passes
All vehicles parked on campus at the UNT Health Science Center are required to display a valid parking permit. As a visitor you can receive a temporary permit for a $1 charge.
You can obtain a visitor permit by visiting the Parking Office located at the intersection of Montgomery St. and Mattison Ave. in the parking garage. Our address is 3600 Mattison Ave., Fort Worth, TX.
A visitor permit will cost $1 per day, and can be purchased with cash, check, or credit card. The office is open to accept payments and distribute permits from 7:30am – 4:30pm Monday – Friday.
Use of Temporary Passes
Temporary passes are NOT valid for entrance into gated facilities. The permit must be displayed by hanging from your rearview mirror with the green side facing out.
Visitor Parking Areas
- The purpose of parking meters on campus is to provide a convenient way for visitors, employees, and students to park temporarily without having to visit the Parking Office to purchase a permit. These meters are not intended for students to attend class, or for employees to park while at work.
- Metered parking is located along Bunting Avenue.
- Meters will accept nickels, dimes, quarters, credit cards, and meters cards.
- Each meters will display information on the days and times the meters will require payment, the meter’s maximum time limit, and any other important information.
- Parking is not allowed at a meter that is not functioning during the hours where payment is required.
Visitor parking spaces are available in Lots 6, 7, 15, and 19. Please see the campus map or contact the Parking Office for assistance.
Patient and Clinical Participant Parking
Patients may park in the Patient Care Center lot (Lot 1). Clinical Participants will need to obtain a University parking permit if one has not been provided by the department. These permits may be purchased from the Parking Office for $1 per day.

The high volume of vehicles and the limited number of parking spaces on campus necessitates the strict enforcement of the parking regulations. If you park in any lot without a valid permit, you risk being ticketed.
