Union Facts

Not only does the University Union host many campus services and dining options, it also accommodates space for student meetings and functions.

UNT's University Union was first formed as the Memorial Union, in honor of the men and women lost during wartime. The Memorial Wall, currently pays tribute to our fellow Eagles who have served.

The first college unions were available only for men. As more women pursued higher education in the early 1900s, some colleges opened separate union facilities for them. UNT's union has always been open to all members of the UNT community.

UNT's student-led programming office, UPC, puts on more than 180 events and activities thanks largely to the suggestions made by UNT students.

The Union Gallery hosts a variety of student and community artists throughout each semester. It is a great free way to check out local art on your way to class.

Discounted tickets are available through Union Perks. Enjoy campus and DFW community-wide events and attractions for a fraction of the price!

More than 60 pieces of art are featured throughout the Union building. Spend a free moment browsing the unique examples of talent at UNT.
