What is Off-Campus Student Services?
Off-Campus Student Services, part of Student Activities, serves as a liaison between students and departments that provide services for off-campus students. Providing resources and services directed towards the commuter, off-campus, and non-traditional student population, as well as raising the awareness of these students, Off-Campus Student Services sponsors several programs and activities to assist students in their overall collegiate experience. Services include assistance on locating off-campus housing, information on commuter and transportation services (i.e. carpooling, bus schedules, etc.), as well as coordinating and co-sponsoring events such as Commuter Week and Housing Fairs.

Coffee & Convos
The purpose of this program is to grant both non-traditional and graduate students the opportunity to engage their professors in conversations outside of the classroom and begin building relationships with them. Students may pick up tickets from Student Activities (Union 345) for themselves and a professor after completing a quick pre-assessment. Tickets may be used at any of the following four locations on campus: Discovery Perks at Discovery Park, Go! Station in Wooten Hall, The Study in Willis Library, The Corner Store in the Union (1st floor), and Starbucks in the Union (2nd floor). After you meet with your professor, you will complete a quick post-assessment and then get a free t-shirt! Click here to complete the pre-assessment. Last day to pick up tickets for Fall 2016 is Nov. 23.
Union of Non-Traditional Students
Union of Non-Trad Students (UNTS) is an organization devoted to the recognition of non-traditional students continuing their higher education, standing as an inspiration for scholastic growth, and a builder of pride through representation. If you’re interested in getting involved in UNTS please click here.
Too much stuff? Do you need a place to keep your belongings on campus during the day or daily/weekly throughout the semester? The Union can help. Long-term lockers are located on the 3rd floor in the Transfer Center (Union 377). Day lockers are located on the 2nd floor, north entrance (between Starbucks and The Chat). All are free.
Getting involved on campus is a great way for you to have a one-of-a-kind Mean Green experience, and Student Activities is here to help you create that experience, via a peer-to-peer service called Involvement Advising. The goal of Involvement Advising is to help you find a campus event, group, organization, and/or department, where you can connect with other students who have similar interests and find your fit here at UNT. During an Involvement Advising appointment, you'll meet with a Campus Life Ambassador. The CLA team is a group of highly-involved students who will help you create a tailored list of opportunities.
