Life on Campus
The UNT Health Science Center strives to create an atmosphere for students that stimulates learning and integrates extracurricular experiences into the formal learning programs. At the Health Science Center, preventative medicine is a way of life. We encourage our students to develop the habits of leadership that will serve this community and the communities they choose in the future. This means developing personal and professional involvement in a wide range of community health activities.
Support services are provided to students by the Division of Student Affairs. The main office is located in the Student Services Center. The division encompasses the Office of Student Affairs, Center for Academic Performance (CAP), Registrar’s Office, Financial Aid Office, Student Development Office, Office of International Student Services, Office of Career Services, Testing and Evaluation Services and Wellness Services. We hope you will rely on our Student Affairs staff to assist with your needs and concerns, both academically and personally, during your academic career at the health science center.
Wellness Services is dedicated to promoting health and wellness on the UNTHSC campus through various programming and campus activities. The Office of Health Promotion is located in the Founders’ Activity Center on the north end of campus. The Founders’ Activity Center (FAC) is the center for physical fitness on the UNTHSC campus. The FAC is open 7 days per week to students, faculty, staff, and community members. The Founders’ Activity Center includes multiple weight rooms, a room complete with new cardiovascular equipment, an outdoor basketball court, full-service locker rooms, and FREE group exercise classes for all members. Equipment Orientations are available upon request to all members. Personal Training is available at competitive rates for UNTHSC faculty, staff, and students.
While our campus is located at the heart of an urban area it is extraordinary in that we are part of a world-renown cultural district, near major municipal parks and adjacent to the Will Rogers Memorial Center which hosts a variety of events throughout the year. Whether your interest is equestrian, rodeo, live theater, jazz, ice hockey, baseball, running or a wide range of other activities, you will find many opportunities to attend or participate in your interest in Fort Worth and the Metroplex.
