About Hosting City
A metropolitan area offers a wealth of job opportunities, plus entertainment, culture, shopping and professional sports. A college town offers a peaceful haven for study and research. And UNT has the advantages of both.
The University of North Texas is located in Denton, a town of about 131,000 people only 36 miles north of Dallas-Fort Worth, the country’s fourth-largest metropolitan area. Named one of the 10 Best College Towns in the United States, Denton is a one-of-a-kind city that offers much to do. With 200 sunny days each year, there’s plenty of time for exploring parks and bike trails, two nearby lakes and a 2,000-acre nature preserve. And the local arts-and-music scene keeps Denton original and independent.
