The North Texas Daily, also known as the NT Daily, is the student newspaper of the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas, published Tuesday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters and weekly during the summer. The Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday papers are broadsheets. Starting in 2005, the Daily began publishing Scene, an arts and entertainment-focused tabloid, on Fridays during the fall and spring semesters. The decision to publish the Scene was in part financial after the newspaper underwent an audit.

During the summer, the paper publishes once a week, on Thursdays. In 2009, the student journalists began publishing a magazine called "On the Record" during the summer. Three issues were published that year.
