UNT's commitment to sustainability can be seen through its growing number of state-of-the-art green facilities. And the campus community soon will have a new University Union to add to that list. This summer, work began on a two-year project to transform the old site into a new sustainable, technologically advanced center that meets today's student needs. When complete, the new University Union will serve as a home away from home for students. Its additional 100,000 square feet will provide ample studying, socializing, lounging, dining and meeting space, and interior displays will capture UNT's culture and history. The new union — approved by students in April 2012 — is slated to open in fall 2015.
