Campus Location Lingo

When asking for directions around campus, you may hear UNCG terms with which you are not familiar. Here are just a few:

  • The Quad
    This refers to a cluster of buildings which are centered around a courtyard, bordered by Gray Drive and West Drive. These residence halls include Bailey, Coit, Cotten, Gray, Hinshaw, Jamison and Shaw.
  • The High Rises
    Cone, Grogan and Reynolds are clustered together near Market Street and are referred to as the high rises for obvious reasons. Each building contains at least 8 floors and they are nestled together and walking trails branch out through the trees in every direction from the high rises.
  • College Ave
    When students mention College Avenue, they are referring to an extensive part of campus with a beautiful, wide walkway lined with brick that extends from Spring Garden Street to North Drive. The North and South Spencer, Mary Foust and Guilford residence halls are located along this scenic strip that is also surrounded by academic buildings.
  • The EUC
    The Elliott University Center (EUC) is a familiar and frequently used home base at UNCG. There are a variety of eateries, including Chick-fil-A, Papa John’s, Subway, Salsarita’s, Barnes and Noble and more. The bookstore, SpartanCard services, and campus offices and meeting spaces are located here.
