Grandparents University®



Grandparents University® gives multi-generational families the opportunity to experience college life together during the summer.  It is also an optimal time to help alumni and other adults supportive of the UNT mission to become re-acquainted with the campus and to introduce their grandchildren to the many learning opportunities available at UNT.

Grandparents (or other special adults) and grandchildren (ages 7-12) can earn a Grandparents University® degree by "majoring" in two topics. Participants have the opportunity to spend the night in a UNT dorm and to experience college life.
