All UNCG students have the option of living on or off campus. Approximately 4,200 students live in 24 residence halls on campus.

Students may request residence halls or roommates by name, and whenever possible, such requests will be honored.

Each residence hall is staffed with either a full-time professional Coordinator for Residence Life, a Residential College Coordinator, or a Resident Director/Head Resident who is a graduate student or senior. These staff supervise undergraduate Resident Advisors, who also live in the building. In addition, each hall forms a hall council made up of elected student representatives. These staff and student representatives work together to build an academically and socially supportive community in each hall.

All residence hall rooms are furnished with beds, dressers, and desks. All have community bathrooms either by floor, wing, or within a suite or apartment-style arrangement. All residence halls are equipped with one or more lounges, recreation rooms, study rooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens. All residence hall rooms are provided with Internet access through Time Warner Cable. Students must provide their own computer equipment. All residence hall rooms have a cable TV connection and Time Warner Cable Service with 78 channels, including HBO.

To request a space, students must apply on the UNCG Housing & Residence Life Web site at Descriptions of the halls and directions for applying for housing are available on the Web site. See current housing costs. For a complete listing of suggestions for what to bring to campus, see the Housing and Residence Life Web site.
