The Department of Housing and Residence Life at The University of West Georgia is responsible for providing comfortable housing, academic support, and opportunities that challenge our residents to succeed. Our staff is committed to serving our students by:
- Creating an inclusive environment where all students excel
- Being a leader in developing enduring connections between residents, UWG, and the Carrollton community
- Offering a superior and enriching employment experience for all staff
- Renovating and constructing desirable and sustainable facilities
Comfortable housing options include traditional/community style living residence halls, suite style living options, and apartment style accommodations. Traditional housing options include Bowdon, Boykin, Downs, Gunn, Strozier, and Watson Halls. Suite style living includes Tyus Hall and the University Suites. Apartment style accommodations include the Arbor View Apartments. Greek Village offers more residential-style living, with chapter/living rooms and kitchens being shared by 6 to 20 residents.
Academic support is provided through various programming opportunities presented by the hall staff (primarily Resident Assistants) throughout the course of the semester. Resident Assistants (RA’s) assess the needs of their community through various means and provide ample programming opportunities to meet those needs. Since each building has its own specific community, academic support is tailored to the needs of the community.
Opportunities that challenge our residents to succeed
Perhaps the most prominent purpose in the residence halls is that of assisting students in their personal growth and development. Numerous social and educational programs are presented in the residence halls to encourage residents to explore values and social relationships and to apply classroom learning to real-life situations. Additionally students are afforded the opportunity to be a part of the hall government within the residence halls.
