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

This is an ongoing program that grants 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. After you meet with your professor, you will complete a quick post-assessment and then get a free t-shirt and you will also be entered for a chance to win a $100 Barnes & Noble at UNT credit! This can be used for books, supplies, and/or UNT apparel.

Get Connected

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.
