University of North Georgia Residence Policy
UNG Residence Policy
Full-time students who are accepted on the Dahlonega campus of UNG and who have not earned 60 semester hours or lived four semesters in university housing must live on campus.
Students may live off-campus if:
- they live with and commute daily from the permanent legal residence of parent(s) or grandparent(s) within a fifty-mile radius from campus
- married or divorced
- 21 years of age or older
- have completed two years of successful active military service
- A waiver of this policy will be considered in individual cases for unique hardships. Prospective students should submit requests to the Dean of Students, Dahlonega campus
A waiver of this policy will be considered in individual cases for unique hardships. Both current and prospective students should submit requests to the Dean of Students's Office.
Because of the lack of available housing in recent years, the Residence Life Office has issued temporary waivers of the Residence Policy. These waivers are given to returning students during the normal housing application process in February -- April prior to the Fall semester. These waivers are NOT based on unique hardship, and are only offered during a limited time as the University recognizes the impact of living on campus during the first two years.
