Find your place to belong
Living on campus your first year, you’ll have an automatic way to meet people and get engaged in campus life. By living on campus, you’ll maximize your college experience.
UNT offers 15 residence halls, each with its own personality. Dorm life lets you hang out with other students, eat when and where you want to, or roll out of bed 10 minutes before class if you like. You can opt for a living-learning community with a focus on global learning, jazz, arts and design, business, journalism, health and wellness or other areas.
- Apply online for housing as soon as you decide to attend UNT. Housing spaces fill up quickly with 5,600 UNT students living on campus. You may apply for housing at the same time you apply for admission.
- Within 10 days of completing your housing application, submit your $400 deposit and prepayment.
Eating on campus

UNT has 5 dining halls located in residence halls, providing a wide variety of menu choices — from vegan to Southern comfort foods.

Get the whole experience
For many, intercollegiate athletics is essential to the university experience. NCAA Division I football and 15 other men's and women's sports provide excitement and build affinity. UNT’s new Apogee Stadium provides the ultimate game day experience. Last year’s winning season culminated with the football team taking home the Heart of Dallas Bowl championship trophy.
All that jazz — and more
UNT’s world-renowned College of Music performs 1,000 concerts a year. You can enjoy music of all kinds, but we're famous for jazz — the One O'Clock Lab Band has been nominated for six Grammy Awards over the years. Art exhibits, theatre and dance performances, films and other activities also abound. Many events are free to UNT students. If you're an active person, you can join an intramural sports team, pump iron at the rec center and challenge yourself with adventure trips (and equipment rentals) at our Outdoor Pursuits Center.
