Last Thursday’s high winds didn’t stop the dedication of Northside at UT Dallas (AKA “Comet Town”), which included an appearance by Temoc and the UTD Cheerleaders and Power Dancers, tents offering free samples from Northside food venues and a ribbon cutting.

Northside is a 1.37M gross-square-foot mixed-use complex just across the street from the north end of campus, offering 2,540 beds in 1,221 living units of various configurations, several places to eat, and common spaces dedicated to studying, exercising and recreation.
