Residential Students

For non-cadet residential students, move-in will happen across a five-day window starting Aug. 12, with no more than 20 students moving into any particular residence hall at a time. Assigned move-in dates and times will be emailed to students and should be adhered to.

Accommodations for Residential Students

UNG's Residence Policy will be waived for any high-risk student or cadet who chooses to live off campus. Students may request a waiver from the policy through the Dean of Students form. Residence Life will reach out to Student Disability Services to ask them to reach out to any registered students in housing to communicate the policy.

For any student who can document high-risk circumstances, the housing contract cancellation fee will be waived as well should that student choose to cancel their housing contract for the 2020-21 academic year.

Requests for single-occupancy rooms will be accommodated as space allows, with students or cadets with documented high-risk circumstances receiving first priority, including students living single in a double occupancy room if there are spaces available.

What to Expect at Move-In

  • Students will be limited to no more than two guests to assist them in moving in, and no move-in volunteers will be allowed inside the residence halls.
  • Residence Life will provide carts for students to utilize during the move-in process.
    • Carts will be disinfected with spray between users.
  • Move-in volunteers who normally carry belongings in for students and families will assist with traffic control for non-cadet move-ins.
  • Students will need to complete a digital form acknowledging up-to-date safety protocols regarding social distancing and hygiene. You can complete it now, or it will be available at move-in for any student who has not yet completed it.
  • Student Health Services personnel will be available on move-in day for temperature checks and to make sure that students have completed a questionnaire.
  • Best practices in prevention will be addressed during Residence Life's online modules for summer orientation as well as the virtual first hall meeting the night of each student's move-in. Short video clips covering prevention will also be released on Residence Life’s social media sites leading up to move-in.
  • Students are urged to bring their own face coverings and disinfectant products with them when they move into the residence halls. These items will be included on packing lists.

In the Residence Halls

    • Basic cleaning tips will be provided to residents prior to move-in via video and addressed in their first virtual hall meeting.

    • Alcohol-based hand sanitizers will be provided in each residence hall lobby.

    • Students must meet and visit with any guests outside of the residence halls.
