Meet your new
Whether you sit next to them in your American History course, discover a shared interest during a Mean Green Dodgeball meeting or strike up a conversation on the library mall, UNT is full of places where you can make new friends.
It’s easy to grow your friends list with...
400 student organizations including academic and professional associations, fraternities and sororities, multicultural groups, creative and performing arts clubs, honor societies and recreational sport teams.
15 residence halls on campus, each with their own study groups, activities and support systems. Some have special living-learning communities where you can connect with students who share your major or interest.
Tons of events on campus where you can meet new people. Whether you're into film nights, comedy shows, open mic poetry, musical performances, dance lessons or putt-putt, there's always something to do.
Connect with other students
You can start making friends before you get to campus with UNT’s private social network. Once you're admitted, join to discover who likes the same movies, bands, shows or team and then plan to meet in real life.
something to see and do on campus
Take a stroll through the library mall between classes to enjoy a small concert, a holiday celebration or a university-wide party. Head over to Apogee Stadium, the Coliseum or one of our other sports venues to watch our 16 Division I teams compete as part of Conference USA. Attend one of the 1,000 concerts, theatre performances and art exhibits held on campus each year. There's a lot of entertainment options and many of them are free for students.
Big name speakers
Our Distinguished Lecture Series and Fine Arts Series bring fascinating speakers to campus throughout the year. Past speakers include:
- Ben & Jerry, ice cream entrepreneurs
- George Takei, Star Trek actor and social justice activist
- Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computers
- John Legend, recording artist
- Laverne Cox, actress and transgender advocate
- Bill Rosemann, creative director at Marvel Comics
We mean green
From the iconic wind turbines at Apogee Stadium to the Big Belly solar trash compactors and plentiful recycling bins, you’ll see the proof that we mean green from the moment you step on campus. We even think green as we work up a sweat — ellipticals at the Rec Center collect kinetic energy to help power the building.
An environmental union
Hang out on the rooftop garden, grab a bite to eat at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop or burn off some post-finals frustration in the dance room in the new University Union, scheduled to open in Fall 2015. The union is designed to meet the toughest standards for sustainable building strategies and practices.
Our beautiful Business Leadership Building features video projection screens, a team study room and a securities trading room. Its environmental friendly design includes recycling stations and native landscaping and is LEED Gold certified.
We’re pretty proud of Apogee Stadium, our state-of-the-art sports and entertainment venue that seats 31,000 fans. Its three wind turbines produce roughly a third of the stadium’s energy needs and it was the first newly built stadium to achieve LEED Platinum certification.
“I was part of the team that established UNT Smiles Day, to spread an extra bit of happiness. College can be stressful and just a moment in the day when something unexpectedly nice happens can do a lot to make things lighter.”
