An Important Message from Campus Safety

The University has implemented an emergency notification system that sends voicemails, text messages and e-mails to students, faculty and Staff in the event of an emergency. Members of the UD community are able to quickly receive notifications, instructions and updates during campus emergencies, ranging from weather-related closings to unique emergency situations where time is of the essence. You are strongly urged to visit the UD Web site and logon to BannerWeb HERE to provide your CELL PHONE, E-MAIL and other vital emergency contact information. The notification system is only as useful as the contact information people provide.

Public Transportation

Students without personal vehicles have the option of using the public transportation system. The DART system (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) has a bus route with a stop at our campus. The DART system includes:

  • The Trinity Rail Express to Ft. Worth and Ft. Worth buses to destinations including Sundance Square, the Ft. Worth Museum District, and the Stockyards.
  • The A-Train to Denton, plus all Denton buses.

You can check out the DART schedules HERE. Full-time students can also apply for a DART college student id which gives them access to reduced fares. More information about this as well as the enrollment form can be found HERE.
