UWG recognizes that mutually beneficial partnerships in the Carrollton community are critical in creating a positive environment for our students so that we can increase student success. UWG Housing and Residence Life offers this important partnership opportunity to local off- campus housing facilities, so that together we can increase retention, progression, and graduation rates for students. It is our hope that with this agreement our students who choose to reside off- campus will continue to receive comparable support and guidance that they received when starting their undergraduate education in our residence halls.
