Move-In 2016 facts and figures

Chancellor Gilliam was among the many passing out cold water and other treats or helping students and their families unload their belongings.

Tim Johnson, director of Housing & Residence Life, gave Campus Weekly a report on Move-In as of 8 a.m. Monday. Some key numbers:

  • UNCG Housing & Residence Life had 5,380 students checked into their residence halls.
  • Additionally, about 60 students have been assigned to “temporary” spaces. 45 students remain on a waiting list.
  • Each year there are some “no-shows” for student housing. Therefore, most of those currently in temp spaces will be reassigned to permanent rooms in the first couple of weeks of the semester.
  • Most of those on the waiting list are upperclassmen who have a local address and applied very late in the summer. They are generally able to commute to campus until we are able to find them a space, Johnson explains.
  • “We are slightly ahead of last year with these (on-campus residence) numbers,” Johnson added.
