Living in Denton

Denton is primarily a university city, with some 40,000 registered students forming a large section of the city’s recorded population of 118,000. Situated at the northern tip of the golden triangle with Dallas and Fort Worth, Denton is also part of the Dallas, Fort Worth and Arlington Metroplex, the economic and cultural hub of North Texas. Thanks to the music departments of the University of North Texas and the Texas Women’s University, Denton enjoys a thriving music scene. The annual Arts and Jazz Festival attracts thousands of visitors, as does the North Texas State Fair and Rodeo. Acoustic Lawn Jams take place on Saturday mornings, from May through to October, with musicians and singers giving impromptu performances. As an expatriate living in Denton, you should find the city a pleasant place to live. Student population apart, the city has an international expat community, many of whom are highly educated professionals with the two universities and various multinational corporations. Finding fellow expatriates in Denton should not be too difficult, but registering with InterNations affords you membership to an exclusive community of global expats who are willing to share time with others of a similar standing for social events and outings with like-minded individuals and their families.

Moving to Denton

The relocation process is demanding and stressful, even for seasoned expatriates. Managing your move to Denton may present specific difficulties which only those who have been through relocation themselves can advise on. By networking with fellow expats online via the InterNations portal, advice and useful tips may be freely given by those who have experienced life in Texas and even Denton itself. For more general guidance on moving to a new country, the InterNations online publication, the Expat Magazine contains many articles of interest to expatriates on a wide variety of topics. Reading through the magazine before and after relocating is advisable. Denton, known as the “Redbud Capital of Texas” due to its many redbud trees situated on most blocks, is an attractive city which is situated amidst rolling prairies, and has a humid, sub-tropical climate that expats moving to Denton can enjoy.

Working in Denton

The two universities in Denton County attract leading academics, and there is also a manufacturing base in Denton itself. The Barnett Shale, a natural gas field with many extraction wells, lies beneath Denton County. The city's position within the Metroplex affords Denton residents employment with many Fortune 500 listed companies, including ExonnMobil. The Metroplex has the largest concentration of corporate headquarters in the United States, and a large Information Technology industry base which has earned the area the nicknames of “Silicon Prairie” and “Telecom Corridor”. Socializing with fellow InterNations members, expats working in Denton may rub shoulders with acclaimed academics and leading lights in the telecommunications and defense industries. Organizing social events with trusted InterNations members could include visits to the Sky Theater Planetarium at the University of North Texas, and the Bayless Selby House Museum, which has displays of Victorian artefacts and Eastlake style furniture.
