Campus and Centers

The Denton Campus

The main campus of Texas Woman’s University is located in Denton, TX, a growing community of more than 113,000 residents and located 38 miles north of Dallas and Fort Worth, the nation’s fourth-largest metro center.

The university’s high-rise residence, academic, and administrative buildings dominate Denton’s skyline. Blended with these structures are historic buildings, including Old Main (the university’s first building) and the Little Chapel-in-the-Woods.

Known for its beauty and private college feel, the Denton campus features the Blagg-Huey Library, which is home to the nationally renowned TWU Woman’s Collection – the best concentration of resources on U.S. women in the Southwest. The university is replete with modern technology and classrooms that offer creative approaches to teaching and learning. For example, the Ann Stuart Science Complex includes the latest instructional technology and lab equipment for teaching and research in chemistry and biochemistry while the new 80,000-square foot Scientific Research Commons includes collaborative labs and a microscopy suite that support biology, physics, and nutrition & food sciences. Woodcock Hall is home to the Woodcock Institute for the Advancement of Neurocognitive Research and Applied Practice among many diverse programs. The TWU Fitness and Recreation Center features a 30-foot indoor climbing wall with a 22-foot vertical rappelling station. The Redbud Theater is a 120-seat proscenium venue that showcases a variety of drama performances each year. The Student Union opened in spring 2020 in the renovated historic Hubbard Hall and offers the campus community opportunities for meetings, dining, and events beyond the classroom.
