Student Life

Student Affairs

The following section includes some of the many services provided to students from Student Affairs. For more information, call (972) 338-1775 or e-mail: StudentAffairs@untdallas.edu.

Disability Services

UNT Dallas provides reasonable accommodations to qualified students with disabilities in accordance with state and federal laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The Disability Services Coordinator assists qualified students with disabilities in determining and coordinating appropriate reasonable accommodations and/or auxiliary aids and services, to the extent necessary, for qualified prospective, newly admitted or currently enrolled students. Students with disabilities can register for services with the Disability Services Coordinator after being accepted to UNT Dallas and registering for classes. In order to register for services, students must contact the Disability Services Coordinator to set up an intake appointment.

Students must provide documentation of their disability in accordance with University policy. Students requesting a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) must provide the supporting documentation to the Disability Services Coordinator from their physician, educational diagnostician, licensed psychologist, psychiatrist, or other qualified professional. Documentation received will be considered in determining whether a student is disabled as defined by the ADA, and therefore entitled to reasonable accommodation. For more information, see the University’s policy on disability accommodation for students (7.004) at: http://www.untdallas.edu/hr/upol.

Students with questions or concerns and those wishing to request an accommodation should call Cynthia Suarez, the Disability Services Coordinator, at 972-338-1777.  Individuals who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, deaf-blind or speech-disabled may contact the Disability Services Office by using Relay Texas. To contact Relay TX dial 7-1-1.

Student Organizations

We know from research that student satisfaction with their college experience stems in large part of their opportunities to participate in programming outside of the classroom and the Office of Student Affairs hopes to provide you with those opportunities through our growing number of Student Clubs and Organization.  The University of North Texas at Dallas is home to more than 40 student organizations, representing the diverse interests of students across campus, including majors, cultural background, sports, service, and more!

Not only do student groups offer you an opportunity to socialize and develop relationships with other students who have similar interests, but this experience will also help cultivate and enhance the skills that employers and graduate schools are looking for in college graduates.  From leadership and decision-making, to cooperation and communication, you won’t just be building your résumé during your time with this group, but you will also build self-confidence, lasting relationships, and school traditions that will become a lasting legacy at UNT Dallas.

If you’d like to form a new organization and/or have questions about the process, please email Student Affairs at StudentAffairs@untdallas.edu for more information.
