Learning to operate in a new and unfamiliar environment is challenging, especially if you don't know who to ask or where to go for help. Here are campus resources that will help you make a smooth transition to life as a UNT student.
Need to buy some books?
Now that you have officially signed up for class, you'll need to buy your textbooks.
A convenient place to get them is Barnes & Noble at UNT, on the first floor of the University Union.
Need to do some research?
As a college student, you'll be spending a lot of time reading, studying and conducting research. The best places to do all of these activities start in the UNT Libraries. The libraries are the heart of learning and research at UNT. Library faculty and staff offer outstanding core services, provide leading-edge technology and support, and enhance the campus community with special events throughout the year. The libraries lead by providing open access to information and knowledge, showcase the scholarly and artistic works of UNT's faculty and staff, and help UNT's students succeed.
Need to create and check your EagleConnect account?
In order to get official UNT email messages regarding everything from bad weather notices via Eagle Alert to academic calendar updates, you'll need to log into your EagleConnect account.
Need to use a computer?
If you're on campus without your laptop and need to work on a paper, go online or check your EagleConnect account, you can visit any of UNT's computer labs.
Having computer trouble?
Here's a nightmare… You spent all night cramming to finish a 10-page paper for your American History class and there are only 45 minutes left until class starts when the paper is due. You start printing the paper and nothing happens. You could panic, or get help from the University Information Technology Helpdesk.
Having computer trouble in your dorm?
Here's another nightmare… You spent the whole weekend in your dorm room writing a 10-page paper for your English Lit class and there are only 45 minutes left until class starts when the paper is due. You just hit save but your document vanished. You could panic, or look for help from UNT's Residential Network.
Need to register for classes?
You've been accepted to UNT and your first order of business is to register as a new student. All registration is conducted online at my.unt.edu. You will need your EUID and password to register. If you need help, contact the Registrar's Office.

Got to pay for classes?
Once you've registered and selected your classes, you'll need to pay your tuition bill.
