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” Facebook Group can help. Before you can join, you just have to fill out a short form before you click “Join Group” in Facebook.

1) Complete the form below, beginning October 16.

  1. Close any browser you are currently using. (You cannot have your personal gmail or other email account open in the browser. You must be logged out of it before the next step.)
  2. Open a browser and log into your UNCG iSpartan account. Don’t have an iSpartan account yet? Visit https://its.uncg.edu/Accounts/New/ (This will automatically verify that you have an active UNCG account for the next step.)
  3. Open a new tab in that same browser and complete the following form. (You will be denied access to the form if you do not complete step 1 first.)

2) Join the Facebook Group.

Once you have completed the form, there’s just one more step. Go to the Facebook page and click JOIN THE GROUP. You will then be approved to join and you can share a little bit about yourself to get started.

Remember, please don’t share any personal contact information in posts to the whole group. Use direct message if you want to exchange phone numbers or other contact information with individual members once you get to know each other better.

Ideas to Get you Started

From the interactions in the previous roommate group, we have learned that many students are interested in hearing about the following:

  • Your hobbies and interests (What types of music do you like? What sports do you play? What movies and shows do you like? Do you play video games often, and which ones? Do you like working out at the gym?)
  • Your personal habits (Are you a night owl or an early bird? Do you like noise or quiet at night? TV on or off at night? How often do you clean? How do you feel about overnight guests? How do you feel about sharing? Do you like lights on at night?)
  • Would you describe yourself as an introvert or extrovert?
  • What is your major and what are your study habits like?
  • Do you have a job?
  • What do you like to do on the weekends?

The purpose of this group is to provide UNCG students with a private forum where students can share and connect with other students who will be attending UNCG. This group provides a place for positive interaction for students to meet new people and possibly find a roommate for campus housing.
