Campus Resources: Health and Wellness

ACCESS Mentoring Program | University Union, Suite 377 | 940-565-4198

The ACCESS Mentoring Program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to connect with a member of UNT’s faculty or staff as well as a peer mentor. Faculty and staff members who have been at UNT for at least one year are encouraged to be a mentor for a new student. Mentors should have knowledge of the university and its resources and be willing to assist new students as they acclimate to our campus and college life. ACCESS Mentoring invites staff representatives from every department to participate; this is an excellent opportunity for UNT students to connect with the campus outside of the classroom and enhance their learning experience.
