REAL Communities—“Residents Engaged in Academic Living”--are communities within the residence halls that bring students together who share the same major or interest. The goal of the REAL Communities program is to enhance students’ education at the University of North Texas by creating learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Besides living on a wing with other students who share the same academic interest, a REAL Communities resident would be able to attend programs and activities that focus on their major or thematic interest, meet and get to know UNT faculty outside of the typical professor-student environment, enroll in classes with their peers on the wing, and much more.
If you are interested in this program but have more questions, check our Frequently Asked Questions page and also review the currently offered REAL Communities in the column to the left. If you still have questions after reviewing these items, please send your further inquiries to Housing Info.
To apply for a REAL Community select the REAL Community option on the Application Type step of the Housing application.
