Family Weekend 

The University of North Texas recognizes the important role families and friends play in the educational process.  Each fall the campus opens its doors to embrace those important individuals.  Family Weekend 2018 is scheduled for Friday, September 28 - Sunday, September 30, 2018.  Visit the Family Weekend website to learn more.

Thanksgiving & Spring Break Shuttle Bus 

Parent Programs has partnered with BreakShuttle to provide break transportation for UNT students during both Thanksgiving and Spring Break. BreakShuttle is the largest national provider of college and university break transportation services in the United States. They are committed to providing reliable, safe, and convenient transportation services on luxury coach buses that allow even the most remote colleges and universities to have a "pop up" transportation network around major school breaks. Bus trips are provided by BreakShuttle, a separate entity from the University of North Texas. The office of Orientation and Transition Programs at the University of North Texas works with BreakShuttle to ensure these trips are possible.
