UNT has extensive resources to help student succeed academically and personally. Below are just a few of the campus resources UNT provides that we think are very important to our Non-Traditional, Commuter, and Graduate students.
Off-campus students can also take advantage of great commuter meal plans. Learn more about meal plans, summertime meal plans, and the Food Advisory Committee.
Several offices, including Student Financial Aid and Scholarships, Dean of Students, Student Activities, and the Registrar's Offices, have extended hours during the Fall and Spring semesters. An after-hours message line at (940) 565-2648 is offered through the Dean of Students Office. All messages are forwarded the next day. Many campus offices also have voicemail
During the spring and fall semesters, about 3,800 UNT students, including teaching fellows and graduate assistants, have on-campus jobs. Most students work at least three to four hours in the morning or afternoon, for a total of 15 to 20 hours a week.
The Career Center in Chestnut Hall posts available on-campus and off-campus jobs. The center has an online system where you can set up an account to view part-time openings. It is up to you to contact the potential employers for job interviews. First-time users will need to contact the Career Center in person or by e-mail to obtain a password. The center also offers job fairs each semester that are attended by more than 200 employers who are looking for employees. To contact the Career Center, call (940) 565-2105 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UNT students, their spouses, and their families can take advantage of a group health insurance plan through an independent insurance company. The forms can be picked up at the Health Center or online.
As a UNT student, you have access to a large variety of legal services from Student Legal Services. You can receive legal representation, advisory, or referrals for legal matters pertaining to landlord-tenent disputes, leasing documents, domestic violence, automobile insurance, simple divorces, family law, wills, labor disputes, immigration, and more. However, Student Legal Services cannot represent you for criminal or traffic violation matters. Nonetheless, they can refer you legal resources to assist with matters that UNT legal representatives cannot directly provide to you.
While Student Financial Aid and Scholarships helps you get money, the Student Money Management Center (SMMC) assists with what to do and how to manage your money and personal finances. With the guidance of SMMC coaching services, you can learn more about basic budgeting, debt management, tuition and fee payment planning, savings, job offers and benfits, and more. SMMC, however, cannot advise you on wealth or asset management, home buying or selling, tax services, or other types of complex financial matters.
As a UNT student, you receive a membership to the Pohl Recreation Center through your student fees. Paid memberships are also available for purchase for a student's spouse and dependents, and for UNT alumni. Continuing student membership is also offered. The Pohl Recreation Center houses a 45-foot climbing wall, indoor swimming pools, an indoor running track, basketball courts, and exercise equipment. Recreational sports programs include aquatics, fitness and group exercise, informal recreation, intramural sports, outdoor pursuits, and sports clubs.
