The North Texas region's largest research park with nearly 300 acres of space dedicated to the sciences, technology and engineering, UNT's Discovery Park is located 5 miles north of the UNT main campus in Denton, Texas. It includes a 590,000 square foot building, which is occupied by the College of Engineering, the College of Information and supports interactive and multidisciplinary STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) research, education and training that benefits students, faculty and the community, and expands economic development by developing industry-university partnerships.
UNT's Discovery Park features several state-of-the-art research labs such as the Materials Research Facility (MRF), a facility with high-powered microscopes for 3-D characterization and processing, and the Greenhouse Complex, a climate-controlled facility equipped with an expandable infrastructure to accommodate diverse growing conditions, including high ceilings to grow sugarcane and other tall plants.
Discovery Park is near Interstate 35 and is surrounded by a large parking area. It is also accessible by the campus shuttle bus.
