Residential Students

For non-cadet residential students, move-in for spring 2021 will happen across a two-day window of January 9 and January 10. New students will have the opportunity to choose a move-in appointment with their housing assignment email. Assigned move-in dates and times 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. 

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.
  • 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 orientation as well as the virtual first hall meeting the night of each new residential student's move-in. 
  • Students are urged to bring their own face coverings and disinfectant products with them when they move into the residence halls. Face coverings are required inside the residence halls when a student is outside of their room. These items will be included on packing lists.

In the Residence Halls

  • Students will be responsible for cleaning their own rooms/suites/apartments.
  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizers will be provided in each residence hall lobby.
  • In-room visitation will be prohibited during the social distancing phase, but room to room visitation may reopen later in the semester pending COVID-19 cases on campus.
    • Guests will not be permitted within the residence halls.
    • Students must meet and visit with any guests outside of the residence halls.
  • Students who develop a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing are to immediately alert UNG staff through the Self-Report Form.
    • Students should call University Police at 706-864-1500 or 911 if someone is experiencing difficulty breathing or another medical emergency.
  • For residential students on the Dahlonega Campus, some residence hall rooms have been set aside for potential isolation purposes.
