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.

Who Can Apply during the Priority Period?

Those currently living on campus in Spring 2023 can apply during the priority period for Fall 2023-Spring 2024 On-Campus Housing.

Why should I apply during the priority period?

Those who apply during the priority period have the first pick of housing before incoming students and those filling out the general guaranteed housing application. If you live in an apartment (Tower Village, Spartan Village, Lofts on Lee, Spring Garden Apartments) you have the ability to retain your room for next year. If you want to retain your room, you have to apply during the priority period.

What do I need to do to be assigned with a preferred roommate(s)?

You as well as all your roommates must apply during the priority period. Before the application get with your roommates and decide on a group pin. You will also need their Student ID numbers to input during the application. When prompted during the application enter this information. When it is time to select a space only one of you will need to log into Artemis and assign all students to a room. We recommend the student with the earliest selection time choose the space. When logging into Artemis you will select “Group of 2” or “Groups of 3&4”, this will take you to select your room.

  I have a friend/family member coming to UNCG as a new first time student, how do we get put together and where would we be assigned?

If a current resident wants to be assigned with a new first time student

1.  They would be assigned with that new first time student in a traditional double room.

2.  Both students would need to send an email to hrl@uncg.edu after they have both completed a housing application and request to be placed together in a double room (The new student application opens February 1).

3.  Once we receive both emails and confirm application we will assign together in a traditional double room.

Definition of a new first time student – Admitted by UNCG as a first time student.  Does not matter what their class standing.  These are not transfer students.
