UNCG has a diverse international community that includes students and faculty from all across the globe. The International House (I-House) is located in Tower Village and is the perfect situation for students from other countries to be with others in the same situation, while meeting American students who also live there. Half of the residence hall students are from the United States. The other half is filled with students from abroad. On Fridays throughout the semester, the iHouse hosts Friday Fest. Friday Fest is a program where international students explain the customs, traditions and practices of their home country. Friday Fest gives other students an opportunity to eat authentic food from the host nation and often to learn traditional dances.
Temporary rooms are converted community rooms in Phillips/Hawkins and Cone. Typically, four students are assigned together until a permanent room becomes available. The amount of time a student spends in a temporary room varies. Last year, all students in temporary housing moved to permanent assignments within the first month.
INTERLINK Language Centers offer intensive English instruction, academic preparation, and cross-cultural orientation for students, scholars, and professionals on a year-round basis. The program prepares students for challenging careers, and provides the tools and skills needed to achieve success in the 21st century. Upon graduation, many students go on to study in academic programs at UNCG or other area universities. A member of the Interlink office contacts the housing office at the start of each Interlink session with the number of students requiring housing. These students are assigned to a temporary/community room in Phillips/Hawkins for one week. This gives the students a chance to decide if they would like to continue to live on campus or to move off campus. If the Interlink student decides to stay on campus, they are moved to a permanent assignment.
UNCG will consider reasonable housing accommodations for students with ADA needs. In order for a student with a special need to be approved to receive a modified housing assignment, he/she must request housing accommodations as follows:
- Submit the 2017-18 Request for Special Housing Accommodation Form, available during the housing application period.
- Submit current documentation of a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities (if applicable) with your requests.
- Provide sufficient documentation from a qualified professional addressing your unique needs in housing accommodations to the Office of Accessibility Resources & Services.
- NOTE: You are submitting documentation to OARS for your housing request only. Students requesting academic accommodations, should contact OARS to inquire about their registration process.
