Once you’ve become aware of the deadlines you need to follow, you’re ready to use ARTEMIS, your all-access housing portal. You will use Artemis to access everything related to your housing assignment. You will apply, find out your room assignment and your roommate(s)’ information (if you are a new UNCG resident) or select your roommate and your specific room, find room change information, and more. Once you log in using your iSpartan credentials, you will see information that is custom-tailored just for you.

We recognize that it can be difficult for UNCG students to meet others who might like to share a room. The UNCG HRL “Find a Roommate Group” can help. Visit Find a Roommate to get started.


2017-2018 Housing Application

General Notes:

Once the current campus resident application goes live in Artemis, you will have access to:
  • Your current and future assignments
  • The Returner Priority (or Non-Priority) Application: You will follow the steps in Artemis and click finish. Then, you receive a priority time window that indicates how early you will select a room. The earlier the time, the earlier you can choose.
  • Room Retention/Roommate Pull-in:
    • Room Retention refers to your ability to keep the same exact room for the upcoming year. Restrictions apply to this option and will be outlined on the deadlines page.
    • Roommate Pull-In is a process where a group that is interested in living together collectively sign up for the same room, apartment or suite.
  • Priority Group Self-Assignment information: One member of a group that wants to live together collects the name, UNCG ID#, group pin, priority time window, and meal plan choice of the other member(s) of the group. He or she will use that information in Artemis to assign the group in a room. Groups should always get the person with the EARLIEST Time to log into Artemis to pull in his or her roommate(s).
  • Self-Assign: You also have the option to select a room on your own, which is called the self-assign process. The deadline page will list when current residents are able to self-assign.

Step 1: Check Out the Residence Halls

Prioritize a list of the halls to which you’d like to be assigned. These include: Jefferson Suites, The Quad: (Bailey, Coit, Cotten, Gray, Hinshaw, Jamison and Shaw), Spring Garden Apts, Spartan Village: (Haywood, Highland, Lee, Lexington, McCormick, Union), Tower Village.

Step 2: Know Your Deadlines

Please visit the Housing Deadlines page for details and for VIDEOS about using Artemis.

Step 3: See Your Current Assignment

To find your current room assignment information, log into UNCGenie. You can check on the following:
  • Room Assignment
  • Roommate Assigned to your room
  • Meal Plan

Step 4: Apply for Housing

Click on the Artemis graphic anywhere on the application page to access the login screen for the application. You will see information that is custom-tailored for you.

Step 5: Assign yourself to a Room

Once you have completed the application, you are ready to select a room. You will need to check to the "Current Campus Resident Deadlines" to determine when and how you assign yourself to a room. Individual videos will walk you through each part of the room selection process.

Check Your email

Information about Meal Plan changes and other housing information will be posted on the Housing and Residence Life web site and e-mailed to your ispartan (@uncg.edu) account.

Information for Current Campus Residents

Preview of the Priority Housing Deadline and Self-Assignment Process: More information about the Current Campus Resident Priority Housing Deadline and Self-Assignment Process will be sent to all current residents in late November. Until then, here are some key parts of the process to keep in mind:
  1. Only students in Spartan Village/Lofts on Lee, Tower Village, and Spring Garden Apartments may elect to stay in their current room for 2017-2018. Students living in Jefferson Suites and Quad Halls may not retain their rooms for 2017-2018.
  2. Priority for assignment will be given to groups of 4, then groups of 3, groups of 2, and then individuals. These groups will be prioritized by randomly assigned priority numbers regardless of class standing.
  3. Current residents selecting rooms as individuals will be prioritized by randomly assigned priority numbers and class standing with freshman, followed by sophomores, followed by juniors, and then followed by seniors/grads.
  4. Cone Hall will be renovated in 2017-2018 and therefore all traditional double room spaces will need to be reserved for incoming new freshman for Fall 2017.
  5. Spartan Village Phase II (the buildings under construction next to the Kaplan Center) will open up in Fall 2017 and will have approximately 90 two bedroom/two bathroom apartment spaces and 240 two bedroom/one bathroom spaces. Almost 80% of upperclassman bed spaces will be private rooms and will have shared batrhooms with less than 3 other students.
  6. Room Selection for Ashby College, Strong College, and International Honors will be done separate from the general self-assignment process.
The 2017-2018 housing application goes live for new applicants on February 15, at 10 a.m., for new freshman. Here are the steps new applicants will follow:

Step 1: Check Out Special Interest Housing

Find out if you want to apply for Special Interest Housing.

Step 2: Visit Residence Hall Information

Prioritize a list of the halls to which you’d like to be assigned. These include the following halls, (unless you apply and are accepted into a Special Interest Housing Community): Grogan, Guilford, Mary Foust, Moore/Strong, North Spencer, Phillips/Hawkins, Ragsdale/Mendenhall, Reynolds, South Spencer, Weil/Winfield

Step 3: Activate Your iSpartan Email Account

Before you open the application, ACTIVATE your iSpartan email account. UNCG iSpartan accounts are required to log into the application. You must wait one day between the time you activate your iSpartan account and the time you apply.

The application can be completed using most internet browsers on both Mac and Windows PC. Accepted browsers include: IE 9 or older, Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome.

Step 4: Test Your Access

Click on the Artemis graphic anywhere on the application page to access the login screen for the application. You can test that your iSpartan account works ahead of time, but you will not be able to complete an application until the deadline period begins.
    Parent/Legal Guardian Approval:
  • If a student is not 18 years of age at the time the online Housing Application is submitted, a parent or legal guardian will need to agree with the conditions and terms of the Housing Contract. Instructions for this step are available in Artemis.

Step 5: Read the Housing Contract

The 2017-18 Housing Contract is a legally binding document. Please read it carefully, as you are responsible for fulfilling the terms of the contract.

Step 6: Use Artemis to Apply

This video will help:

Log into Artemis, to begin your housing application. You will be asked about:
  • Special Interest Housing community preferences.
  • Your building preferences (See Step 2 above): This is not optional and you must select all buildings and put them in order of preference. This preference is used if you are not assigned to a Special Interest Community.
  • Any roommate preference and meal plan preferences: You will answer questions that will pair you with a random roommate, or you will select a specific person with whom you’d like to room.
  • You will then order your building preferences.

Getting Your Assignment

New First Time Freshman will be assigned in waves, and the final assignments will be made in early July. During each wave only a percentage of each building will be filled. After you complete the application, you will be able to return to it to edit your preferences until June 30, 2017.
  • 1st Wave: April 1 New Freshmen who apply before March 15, and who don't select a Special Interest Community preference, will receive an assignment by April 1.
  • 2nd Wave: May 1 New Freshmen who apply or de-assign* before April 15, and who don't select a Special Interest Community preference, will receive an assignment by May 1.
  • 3rd Wave: June 1 New Freshmen who apply or de-assign before May 15, will receive an assignment by June 1.
  • Final Wave: July 6 New Freshmen who apply or de-assign before June 15, will receive an assignment by July 6.

Updating Your Application

To update your housing application, log into Artemis and update your preferences. You have until June 30 or once you are assigned to update your preferences.
Please Note: If you want to remove a special interest community preference, you must change the preference to "I don't want to live in a Special Interest Community."

Making Changes by De-Assigning

This video will help:
If you are assigned to a room but you wish to make changes to your assignment, you will need to request to DE-ASSIGN from your current assignment. To de-assign means to be removed from a room to which you were assigned, without cancelling your housing application. You may want to consider this if:
  • You have found a person and you'd like to be paired with as a roommate and you want to add each other to your housing applications. (Remember that to have a mutual roommate request, both students must request each other.)
  • You want to re-order your building preferences because you have changed your mind on the hall in which you'd prefer to live.
  • You have decided to add or drop a Special Interest Community. To remove a special interest community preference, you must change the preference to "I don't want to live in a Special Interest Community."

To de-assign, you must submit the Housing De-Assignment Form for New Freshmen. (Please Note: Do NOT use the De-Assignment Form to cancel your housing. This is not a cancellation form!)
  • Within one business day after this form is completed, you will receive an e-mail notifying you that you have been de-assigned from your current 2017-2018 assignment.
  • You can then update your application preferences in Artemis before the next wave of assignments goes out.
  • You will have until June 15, 2017, to de-assign from your currently assigned room.

After You Apply: Changing Your 2017-18 Assignment

This section applies to everyone but new, first-time students (freshmen). Once you have successfully assigned yourself to a room, you may make changes by following one of the processes below. Be sure to read through both before you make a decision.

To de-assign means to be removed from a room to which you were assigned, without cancelling your housing application, so you can choose another room. Once Current Campus Residents, Upperclass Non-Residents, or Transfer students have selected a room, they will not be able to see available/unfilled rooms to make changes to their selection. In order to see available/unfilled rooms to make a change, you must complete the Housing De-Assignment Form for Upperclassmen in Artemis, which becomes available March 1. Within one business day after this form is completed, you will receive an e-mail notifying you that you have been de-assigned from your current 2017-2018 assignment. You can then use Artemis to select a new room from what's available. Be aware that there are certain risks to de-assigning yourself from a room to which you are currently assigned and you might want to consider Room Swap instead (see Step 6).
De-Assignment Risks for Current Campus Residents, Upperclass Non-Residents, or Transfer Students:
Although you will be able to select a new room after being de-assigned, here are some risks to keep in mind before you de-assign:
  1. Once you de-assign, you cannot change your mind and ask to get your current 2017-2018 assignment back.
  2. We cannot tell you what is available. Because other students are constantly searching for rooms, the information we would provide would be outdated as soon as we told you. So yes, you have to give up your current room with no guarantees of getting anything better.
  3. If you and your roommate de-assign, you might not be able to get yourselves back together in the same room/suite/apartment.
There are several factors that affect the room you choose next:
  1. How many rooms are available Remember, other students have selected rooms too and this limits what's available for you to choose. The more rooms that are available at the moment you search, the greater chance you have at selecting one.
  2. How many students are searching for rooms If no other students are searching for a room when you look, you have a greater chance of selecting a new space (if one is available). You may even be able to re-select the room you just de-assigned from if you don't see a room you want more.
  3. How many times you check Artemis If you plan to de-assign and then only check Artemis once for a space, you may not find the space you want or a space at all. You must check Artemis multiple times a day to see if new spaces become available as other students de-assign or cancel their housing applications. Last year, we had a few students who de-assigned and selected a new room over 15 times. The more persistent you are, the better chances you have at finding a room.
You might want to consider Room Swap instead
If you are interested in changing your assignment but don’t want to De-Assign, you can try a "Room Swap." Room Swap refers to finding a room you want on a spreadsheet that includes other students who want to change rooms. If they want your room in return, you can swap. To start the process:
  1. Log into ARTEMIS, where you will find the Room Swap Form.
  2. If you are able to find someone with a room space that you would like to swap with, each of you need to send an e-mail to hrl@uncg.edu with the following info:
    • Name
    • UNCG ID Number
    • Hall and Room to which you are currently assigned
    • Name of the Student with whom you want to switch rooms
    • His or her Hall and Room assignment
Please also note that submitting your preferences on the Room Swap form does not automatically ensure an assignment change. Each student will receive a confirmation e-mail for the agreed swap of rooms. BOTH STUDENTS MUST CONFIRM OR THERE WILL BE NO SWAP. Once we have confirmed the information, we will make the room swap.
