Sibling Day

About Sibling Day - a UNT Tradition!

Join us for the 8th annual Sibling Day 2021!

Sibling Day is an exciting tradition at UNT where current students can bring a sibling to campus to show off their North Texas home. Whether your sibling is in elementary school or attending another university, there is something for everyone at Sibling Day! The schedule includes open recreation at the Pohl Rec Center, a meal ticket to the dining hall, tickets to the basketball game (including vouchers to the concession stand), free passes to the Sky Theatre, and the opportunity to see a movie on campus.


The fee for Sibling day is $40 per participant.

UNT Students are free with registration of at least 1 Sibling participant.

The fee for Sibling Day includes meals, access to campus events, tickets to the UNT basketball game, and an event t-shirt.

Required Forms 

UNT students participating in Sibling Day are responsible for the care of their sibling in attendance. The Orientation and Transition Programs office does not provide childcare for attendees; therefore, it is the responsibility of the UNT student to keep track of their sibling participant during the entire length of the program. Participants under the age of 18 are required to submit a Permission to Treat Form to the office of Orientation and Transition Programs. The form requires participants to submit a copy of their current insurance card.

Sibling Day participants will be given a temporary parking permit for the day to park in any campus Eagle parking lot on Saturday. A university parking map can be found online on the Transportation Services website
