The Student Activities Center 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, Student Activities 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.
A commuter student is someone who lives at home, typically with their parents or other family members, and drives to school. An off-campus student is a student who has lived on-campus, but now lives in an apartment, or house, off-campus, either walking or driving distance from the university.
Student Activities partners with Community Assistants at local apartment complexes to support their creation of a community atmosphere, where residents can succeed academically, socially, and professionally. This board, comprised of students, helps program Commuter Week, as well as other events both on-campus and at their apartments, specifically for commuter and off-campus students
If you are looking for off-campus housing, the Student Activities Center can assist you in getting the process started. Information can be provided on local apartments, apartment locators, as well as contact information for city utilities. For assistance on off-campus housing, please contact the Student Activities Center at (940) 565-3807 or stop by our office on the third floor of the University Union, Suite 320. Assistance in finding off-campus housing can also be found at unt.och101.com, where you can find or post adds on apartments and homes for lease. A "Roommate Finder" application is also available through this website.
