This is your home
One of the best parts of the UNT experience is living on campus in one of our 15 residence halls. Each hall has its own personality and traditions, and many offer REAL Communities, which bring you together with other students who share your major or interest.
Another perk of being part of the largest residential campus in the North Texas region is the food! With our great meal plan deals and all-you-can-eat open dining, there’s no shortage of snacks to fuel your study sessions. Our dining halls offer something for every taste, from hand tossed pizza and a taco bar to southern home-style cooking and the delicious all-vegan fare in Mean Greens Café.
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 between classes, 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 associations, fraternities and sororities, multicultural groups and recreational sport teams.
Campus events like Field Day’s three-legged races or the Fine Arts Series’ gallery openings and everything in between.
Opportunities to serve the community through our alternative spring break program, Make a Difference Day and Project VolUNTeer.
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.
“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.”

something to see and do at UNT
As soon as you arrive on campus, your college experience begins with First Flight, UNT’s welcome program. Small groups meet throughout the week to help you build connections, introduce you to resources and even take your first official class picture!
Once you’ve got the hang of university life, you’re sure to bump into a friend or two along the library mall between classes. Our unofficial center of campus is always buzzing with activity and is the place to find everything from an impromptu jam session to the Native Dress and Flag Parade as part of our University Day celebration.
1,000 concerts, theatre performances, sporting events and art exhibits are held on campus each year. That’s a lot of entertainment options – and most of them are free for students.
Slip on your green shirt, warm up your Eagle claw and 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.
Big name speakers
Our Distinguished Lecture Series and Fine Arts Series bring fascinating speakers to campus throughout the year. Past speakers include:
Star Trek actor and social justice activist
Ben & Jerry
Ice cream entrepreneurs
Actress and transgender advocate
Marvel and Marvel Games Creative Director
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.
