Around Denton

We encourage you to explore the Denton community during your UNT Premiere weekend – after all, you won't spend all of the next four years solely on campus! Named the Best College Town in Texas, Denton ("Little d") is the quintessential small Texas town with a big heart.

Downtown, more commonly known as "The Square," is a favorite spot among Dentonites with its many unique shops and restaurants. Whether it's discovering literary gems and antiques, enjoying delicious ice cream or hearing local performers play their music on the courthouse lawn, there is something for everyone in Little d. 

We encourage you to discover Denton for yourself and learn more about this vibrant North Texas community!
