FAQs for Incoming Spring/Fall 2021 Students

Spring 2021

  • When will Spring 2021 Housing applications open?
    • Starting in October, we pull weekly reports and send invitation emails. If you know you have applied as a residential student, confirmed your acceptance but have not received an invite within two weeks after confirming, please email residencelife@ung.edu to check your status.
  • As a new Spring student, am I guaranteed a room for the Spring semester?
    • Spring availability is dependent on vacancies. In the past, we have been able to offer housing to everyone on the Spring housing wait list. With COVID-19 and many students delaying their start until Spring 2021, we expect a higher number of applications than usual. We will offer housing on a first come, first serve basis, but we cannot make a 100 percent guarantee.
  • Are there any additional fees besides rent and meal plan associated with a housing application and contract?
    • Yes, students who begin a housing application will be charged a non-refundable $150 housing application fee. Students will be liable for this fee even if they do not finish the housing application or decide to cancel their application later.
  • How long is the contract? What if I decide to cancel?
    • The Spring 2021 contract will run January-May 2021. If you plan to live on Fall 2021-May 2022, you will have to do another application when that process opens around late January/early February. It is a quick turnaround, so be sure and watch your UNG email closely for deadlines.
    • What if I decide to cancel? Contracts are legally binding once signed. Be aware of the cancellation penalty schedule and the semesterly cost before signing. Reminder, all students (except for Owen) are required to have a meal plan; these costs are not included in the semesterly room rates.
  • What type of housing will be available?
    • We will be offering contracts for double-occupancy, suite-style in Patriot Hall, North Georgia Suites, and The Commons.
  • Will there be singles?
    • Typically, not for Spring.
    • Have a documented medical need? You will need to apply for a residency accommodation through the Student Disability office. If approved, Residence Life will work to place you in a room that fulfills your accommodation, but it will all be contingent on availability.
  • Will I be able to match up with roommates?
    • There will not be a roommate matching period for Spring, but applicants will complete a roommate profile. We will use this to pair you with your best available match with the vacancies available.
  • Is the process different for transfer students?
    • New Transfers: If you are transferring from another school, you will show up on our report, and you will receive an invitation email to your UNG email.
    • Internal Transfer:  If you are doing an internal transfer from a different UNG campus, we will send you an invitation once your internal transfer application has been approved and your home campus is updated to Dahlonega in Banner for Spring 2021. On your internal transfer application, be sure and notate that you want to be a resident.

Fall 2021

  • When will Fall 2021 Housing applications open?
    • At the earliest, we will start sending invitation emails to students who have confirmed their acceptance starting in December 2020. You cannot receive an invitation until you have confirmed your acceptance with Admissions.
  • Are there any additional fees besides rent and meal plan associated with a housing application and contract?
    • Yes, students who begin a housing application will be charged a non-refundable $150 housing application fee. Students will be liable for this fee even if they do not finish the housing application or decide to cancel their application later.
  • How long is the contract? What if I decide to cancel?
    • Fall 2021 contracts are binding for the full academic year August 2021-May 2022.
    • What if I decide to cancel? Contracts are legally binding once signed. Be aware of the cancellation penalty schedule and the semesterly cost before signing. Reminder, all students (except for Owen) are required to have a meal plan; these costs are not included in the semesterly room rates.
  • Will I be able to match up with roommates?
    • Yes, but this section of the application process will not start until February 2021 at the earliest.
  • When will room selection begin?
    • This part will open later in the Spring, but your assigned selection time will be determined by the date you started your housing application. For example, if my friend started their application on January 5, but I did not start mine until January 31. Their room selection time will be earlier than mine. Room selection works on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Will there be singles?
    • We have a very limited number of single rooms. Majority must be held off for students with documented medical needs, and this number continues to increase each year. With this increase, singles are hard to come by for the general student, so it is best to plan on having a roommate.
    • Have a documented medical need? You will need to apply for a residency accommodation through the Student Disability office. If approved, Residence Life will work to place you in a room that fulfills your accommodation, but it will all be contingent on availability.
  • How will I be alerted of updates and new section openings?
    • All housing application updates will only be sent to students’ UNG email addresses. Upon confirming your acceptance, please start the routine of checking this account once a day.
  • Is the process different for transfer students?
    • New Transfers: If you are transferring from another school, you will show up on our report, and you will receive an invitation email to your UNG email.
    • Internal Transfer: If you are doing an internal transfer from a different UNG campus, we will send you an invitation once your internal transfer application has been approved and your home campus updated to Dahlonega in Banner for spring 2021. On your internal transfer application, be sure and notate that you want to be a resident.
