Welcome to UNT 101, a weekly series to prepare you to hit the ground running for your new life at UNT. We’ve interviewed Eagle Ambassadors (read: UNT aficionados) about everything from the best places to study to the best music venues in town. Let their answers be your guide to joining the Mean Green family.
Although you may not have time to make it back to your dorm or apartment, that doesn’t mean you can’t rest between classes. This week our Ambassadors are sharing their favorite places to catch a nap on campus:
Willis Library Basement
With five floors to choose from, the Willis Library basement is a designated quiet floor that can offer students a great napping experience when they’re not hitting the books. Since cell phones, loud headphones and even group chatter is prohibited on this floor, the basement is a great place to get all of the peace and quiet that you need.
Not one, but two libraries have made the list, because nothing is more important than a good study break. The Eagle Commons provides a quiet atmosphere to doze off in when you’ve been hitting the books for just a bit too long.
Although the Syndicate is known for its lunchtime live music and social atmosphere, it may surprise you to know that it is also a great place to unwind and relax. The couches located on the second floor are perfect for a quick nap (when the live music isn’t playing, of course).
The Music Building
Located on the east side of Avenue C, the Music Building has a lot to offer students. While it’s equipped with the essentials every music major needs, it also has a great area on the third floor to get some peace and quiet. The plush couches can help any student get the rest they need without having to leave campus.
The Union patio facing the South Lawn
Providing access to the quiet chatter of the outdoors and a nice spot to sun, the Union patio is the perfect place to lounge or even to take that quick nap before a busy afternoon.
