Located next to Victory Hall, and in the heart of Mean Green athletic venues, Champs is especially popular among student-athletes thanks to its focus on sports nutrition.

Champs also offers fresh salad, fruits, and vegetables as well as delicious desserts—and breads baked daily at Clark Bakery.

Eagle Landing | 1416 Maple, Denton, TX 76201 | 940-369-8415

Eagle Landing is unlike any of the existing venues because it offers the best of both worlds -- Dining Halls and Retail Restaurants. Just like in the Dining Halls, they serve up a huge variety of chef-crafted, from-scratch recipes made with fresh, whole ingredients -- and similar to the Retail Restaurants, they offer those great recipes through a familiar, fixed menu you can count on.

With several restaurants open to serve you at Eagle Landing, you'll enjoy plentiful choices every time you visit -- all for one Meal Plan Swipe.

Food Pantry | Crumley Hall - 1621 W. Highland Street Denton, TX 76201 | 940-565-2648

The UNT Food Pantry presented by Kroger is one of the best ways to serve our students, faculty and staff experiencing food insecurity. They opened our doors in January 2015 in a small closet in the Union. They have moved four times since their early beginnings, growing and developing new ways to meet the needs of our campus members experiencing food insecurity. Current operating hours are on the website.

Donations are accepted at the Food Pantry location in Crumley Hall or The Dean of Students Office in the Union, Suite 409. To have a staff member pick up your items, contact The Dean of Students
