Once you’ve become aware of the HOUSING 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.

Roommate Finder in Canvas

We recognize that it can be difficult for UNCG students to meet others who might like to share a room. The UNCG HRL Roommate Finder can help. Please note, we are no longer using Facebook for this purpose. This year, it is hosted in Canvas. You will need to use your iSpartan credentials to access the Canvas Roommate Finder. Visit ROOMMATE FINDER information to get started.

  • 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 2019-2019 assignment.
  • You can then update your application preferences in Artemis before the next wave of assignments goes out.

After You Apply: Changing Your 2019-20 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 2019-2020 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.


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 2019-2020 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 of De-Assignment

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.
