New Alumni Pavilion

A rendering by HKS Inc. Architects shows the alumni pavilion that will be built at the new football stadium.Mean Green game day events will be bigger and better when the UNT Alumni Association opens its new alumni pavilion in 2011. Located at the northeast entrance of the new football stadium, the pavilion will serve as a memorable gathering place for food, fun and fellowship among alumni and friends.

Award-winning HKS Inc. Architects, which also designed Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, and Manhattan Construction will build the pavilion with bricks that are identical to those used in the new stadium.

The 1,900-square-foot pavilion will include space for 150 sports fans to enjoy big-screen TVs and a full kitchen, as well as stunning views of the stadium from a 1,000-square-foot outdoor deck.

“We are building the pavilion so that alumni, students and friends of UNT can have a great meeting place to connect, so they can be a stronger, more viable presence at the new stadium,” says Derrick P. Morgan, the association’s executive director. “The alumni  pavilion will be a one-of-a-kind meeting place on game days and throughout the year for special events.”

The pavilion will be a centerpiece for a variety of programs and activities the association offers to grow membership and expand benefits.
