About Freshman Orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of North Texas, and welcome to the Class of 2025!

We are proud that you have chosen to become a member of our growing UNT family!

During orientation, you will have the chance to meet with faculty and staff, meet your new classmates, connect with current students, learn about university resources, and receive academic advising in preparation for registering for classes. You will leave orientation understanding our university's spirit and traditions, as well as what to expect as you embark on your college experience.
