The selectable maps and aerial photographs on this page show information related to University of North Texas. The University of North Texas (UNT), based in Denton, is a public institution of higher education and research committed to a wide array of sciences, engineering fields, liberal arts, fine arts, performing arts, public policy, and graduate professional education. Ten colleges, two schools, an early admissions math and science academy for exceptional high-school-age students from across the state, and a library system comprise the university. Its research is driven by nearly 50 doctoral degree programs. The university set a 2012–2013 budget of $870 million, of which $30 million was allocated for research. North Texas was founded as a nonsectarian, coeducational, private teachers college in 1890 and adopted by the State in 1901.

Population, economic setting & major new location developments

The Denton campus is located in the largest populated region of Texas under two categories defined by the U.S. Census: (i) core based statistical area (CBSA; Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington — 4th largest, nationally) and (ii) combined statistical area (CSA; Dallas-Fort Worth — 7th largest, nationally). From an economic perspective, the Denton campus lies within the Dallas-Fort Worth–Arlington metropolitan area, as defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, which as of 2011, had the sixth highest GDP (aka gross metropolitan product) of the nation's 366 metropolitan areas. As a state, Texas, as of 2011, had the fourth highest GDP in the country.

On behalf of the state, the university, in its civic advocacy for the state, prevailed with three new-location, capital-intensive expansions over the last years.

  • The university acquired in 1975 and subsequently developed a medical school in Fort Worth
  • The university created a campus in South Dallas in 2000
  • The university laid the groundwork for establishing the first and only public law school in the region

In 1981, the university spun-off its new medical school as its own independent institution under the UNT Board of Regents. In 2009, the University of North Texas at Dallas became its own independent institution. That same year, the Texas legislature approved the creation of University of North Texas at Dallas College of Law, opening in 2014 in Downtown Dallas as part of UNT Dallas. UNT and its three sister institutions are governed by University of North Texas System — a system established in 1980 by the Board of Regents and legislatively recognized in 2003 by the 78th Texas Legislature.
