4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I might just be saying it great because I was the freshman lucky enough to be housed in the last room in the hallway so my roommate and I had our own bathroom. The hallways sometimes accumulated a lot of dirt but it was cleaned up eventually. I loved where I lived which was Mendenhall. There was always activities and I am a people person so I loved it all.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in a dorm means that you are closer to the social hub of campus and there are several amenities close by such as the cafeteria and the gym. The downside is that you don't have much privacy in a dorm so there isn't really any place to get away from everyone.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I enjoy living on campus but it is expensive.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Of course having to share a bathroom with a hall isn't great, but it's college life.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Obtaining a room is quite easy, but the rooms aren't very spacious.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

UNCG has a full spectrum of dorms, from ones you'd love to live in to ones you hope you never get stuck with. As is customary at most universities, freshmen have to tough it out in the rougher dorms before they can move up to the nicer places. At UNCG, freshmen will most likely find themselves in one of two places: the high rises or the Quad. The high rises are some of the tallest buildings on campus, and, by far, house the most people. Of course, the rooms are small, the walls are paper-thin, and the bathrooms are sketchy, but there is air conditioning and elevators. These dorms are also located right next to the Caf, the Music Building, and the Science Building—but if you've got classes in other places, be prepared to walk, as most of the other buildings are on the other side of campus.

The Quad has a very convenient location—right in the middle of campus. When you live in one of these buildings, nothing is ever too far away. Of course, the biggest drawback to living in the Quad is also the main reason some people refuse to live there at all: None of the buildings have air conditioning. This problem makes for a miserable living situation during the first month of the fall semester and the last month of the spring semester, but it is surprisingly not that bad the rest of the time. The dorms to dream about during your first couple of years at UNCG are Tower Village and the Spring Garden Apartments. Until then, enjoy your experiences in the freshman dorms; it will make your upgrade to upperclassman dorms even sweeter.

Did You Know?
  • None of the Quad dorms have air conditioning. As hot as it gets in North Carolina in the spring and summer, it is very necessary to bring your own fan.
  • You have to supply your own toilet paper if you live in Tower Village or Spring Garden Apartments. However, it is provided for you if you live in any of the other dorms.
