Students in a dorm room

Where to live

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 Living-Learning Communities, which bring you together with other students who share your major or interest.

Eating at Mean Greens

Where to eat

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 even delicious all-vegan fare.

Karma Yoga

Where to play

You can’t spend all your time studying or in the classroom, so UNT provides many ways to stay in shape, unwind and have a little fun -- whether it’s taking a turn on the Pohl Rec Center’s Climbing Wall, cheering on the Mean Green, or playing a pick up game.
