HOUSING

Residency is only offered at the Dahlonega Campus

Living in a residence hall can be an important part of your university experience. The learning that occurs within a residence hall is invaluable and provides you with opportunities to get involved from the first day you move into your new home. The UNG campus at Dahlonega features a mix of options, including traditional residence halls, new suite-style residence halls, and apartment-style residence halls. Once students are offered admission to UNG, they are strongly encouraged to submit their confirmation deposit and begin the housing process. Housing in our residence halls is based on a first-available basis.

CLUBS & ORGINIZATIONS

UNG encourages students to take advantage of the many opportunities to participate in student groups and organizations. In addition to combining your interests with social activities, these organizations help students develop valuable leadership skills. Opportunities for involvement are as varied as our campuses, but typically include academic clubs, honor societies, Greek fraternities and sororities, military organizations, religious organizations, and special interest groups.

Student Clubs and Organizations

DIVERSITY

UNG values cultural, economic and ethnic diversity on all campuses. We believe a diverse campus is especially important in today's increasingly interconnected global environment. Diversity gives our students the opportunity to interact with and understand all people. We believe this is an integral part of the leadership education that students receive, and that their experience with diversity at UNG will be of great value to them after graduation. In tomorrow's diverse environment, our graduates will be more comfortable working with people who are different than themselves.

    Chow breakfast is the BEST and has so many fun and exciting options. UNG dining presents the student with many choices and I was surprised to see how many of these choices were healthy, you just have to be creative with your food choices.

    I have the 10 meal a week meal plan at Chow Hall (our dining hall). I eat there almost every day for at least one meal. Their breakfast is my favorite! At night they always have pasta and I love eating the pasta because you get to pick your own ingredients! They staff in Chow is great and helpful and the food is pretty good! The other places to get food on campus is mostly in Hoag (our student center). It has really great food! Their is a variety of places on campus to get coffee, snacks, or meals and it's all great!

    There is a small restaurant on the Gainesville campus and the food there is actually good. The dining hall on the Dahlonega campus has a large variety to choose from. There is a Chinese bar, a deli, country food, you can make your own hamburger, and more.

    Honestly, the food at UNG could be better. Although they have a large variety, the options get old pretty fast and clean eating is a real challenge. However, there are lots of restaurants (as well as fast food) around town, and a smaller dining hall on campus as well. I suggest getting a more limited meal plan and keeping different food options in your private living space.

    I am involved in greek life here and it's AMAZING! I love every part of it! The Sororities and Fraternities here are so different than other schools. All of them are friends and we all support each other. It is another amazing decision i've made! Also, being a part of Greek Life is WAYYY less expensive than most schools!

    I am not a part of Greek Life, but it's presence around campus has given me enough information to be well informed. The sororities especially are constantly reaching out and organizing events, and posters about their latest ideas can be found anywhere in a residence hall. There are even cheaper options for those with a tight budget, and merchandise for any of them can be found at the University store.
