The University of North Texas at Frisco is readying to open its first building.

A hard-hat tour of Frisco Landing was held May 20. The four-story building is 135,000 square feet, which sits on 100 acres of land at the southwest corner of Preston Road and Panther Creek Parkway. Its spaces are intentionally designed to promote collaboration, transparency and open communication between faculty and students, according to UNT officials.

Construction of the building began in fall 2020 and the first classes at Frisco Landing are expected to begin spring 2023.

"We look forward to the spring 2023 opening of our new building, Frisco Landing, as part of UNT at Frisco," UNT President Neal Smatresk said in a statement. "We are committed to our partners with the city of Frisco, Collin County and Collin College to continue providing the highest quality education experience to Collin County and beyond. This new facility will ensure UNT continues supporting programs and partnerships in an area synonymous with innovative growth."

UNT has been offering classes in Frisco since 2016, with satellite locations at Hall Park and Inspire Park. UNT was the first four-year institution in Collin County.

UNT at Frisco will exclusively offer programs that include project design and analysis, industrial distribution and applied project deign and analysis. The campus is expected to offer classes in 27 undergraduate and master's level programs.
