As your children make the leap into university life, filled with increased academic and personal responsibilities, you also face a transition period. As you navigate this new phase, you have every right to expect a safe and supportive campus where your children will flourish. UNCG is committed to offering services that promote the emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being of our students.

Family connections

Spartan Family Programs offers services and resources to new UNCG families during the transition to college life. This office maintains an active social media community specifically geared to parents and families of current students. They also host our annual Spartan Family Weekend, held each fall.

Nurturing living spaces

UNCG’s strong sense of community is felt throughout our residence halls, many of which house residential colleges. These innovative living-learning environments encourage students to explore similar interests with the guidance of dedicated faculty.

Support services

Many students find community through the Associated Campus Ministries Center, which welcomes all denominations.

Student Health Services provides basic medical care, as well as counseling and psychological services through the Counseling Center.

Students can come to the Kaplan Center for Wellness to maintain their physical and mental health. Wellness programs at Kaplan include substance use prevention, mental health awareness, and organized mindfulness activities. 

Student safety

We take our students’ safety very seriously. Our police officers meet the highest standards of law enforcement and crime prevention, and a walking safety escort program is available to students seven nights a week. In the event of a campus emergency, UNCG offers a notification system to keep parents informed. In addition, UNCG’s Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is available online.
