Residence hall plans at Spartan Village

The Lee Street / Glenwood Avenue intersection may soon have new buildings – and UNCG may have more student housing on campus.

Plans for these two new buildings in Phase II of Spartan Village call for 330 more beds for student housing and also retail space for mixed-use design.

The UNCG Board of Trustees authorized the project at their Feb. 19 meeting. The UNC Board of Governors will have final approval and will consider the proposal during their board meeting on Feb. 27.

The UNCG Strategic Housing Plan recognizes the correlation between on-campus living and student success. Records show that UNCG students living on campus have significantly higher retention rates and graduation rates than those who do not live on campus.

It is anticipated that the new housing will be available for occupancy in the fall of 2017.

Chancellor Brady had discussed the Phase II plans earlier in the month at the Staff Senate meeting.

The buildings will be paid for over time through user rent.
