In 2003, the North Texas athletic department began developing 199.5 acres south of 35E, named the Mean Green Village. In eight years, UNT built a dozen facilities, marking a dedication to men's and women's athletics never before seen at North Texas.
This website offers an online tour of all Mean Green athletic facilities, new and old. Roll your cursor over any of the athletic facilities (shown in dark green) to see a photo and description, and click on the facility to go to that venue's page.
A major component of Apogee Stadium’s energy-efficient design are three wind turbines installed just outside the stadium.
The turbines are expected to prevent the emission of nearly 323 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually and generate a third of Apogee’s power.
Overlooking Apogee Stadium and situated at the northeast entrance near the
wing-shaped end zone section, the Pavilion is a pre-game destination for Mean Green fans.

A large, well-lit parking lot is served by shuttles to and from campus. It also has a cyber café, courtyards, a computer lab and a kitchenette.
Pre-game partying was a UNT tradition long before Apogee Stadium was built, so tailgating was made a part of the landscape.
