Housing

While studying English on campus, students have several possible options for housing: students can live in a dormitory or apartment on campus, or opt for an off-campus apartment.

Dormitory

Living in a dorm provides great opportunities for learning English and meeting people. UNCG dorm rooms are very basic and include (two) beds, desks, chairs, closets or armoires, and chests of drawers. Each room also has a computer jack or wireless access and is air-conditioned. Prices for INTERLINK students currently range between $1265-$2200 per 5-week term, depending on the type of room available. Students who live on campus are required to purchase a campus meal plan, which costs $1100 per 5-week term. Payment for both the room and the meal plan is made directly to INTERLINK during the first week of class. Students interested in staying on campus should contact INTERLINK to find out whether space is available. A $100 deposit is required to reserve a space.

Cost: approximately $1,535 – $2,125 per 5-week term

Apartment

INTERLINK provides information about apartments located near the UNCG campus; however, we are not involved with contracts, security deposits, or the furnishing of apartments. It is best for students to see apartments before signing a contract, so we recommend arriving at least one week before the beginning of classes to visit sites and to complete paperwork. Prices typically range between $400-$800 per month, depending on the type/size of the apartment and the number of roommates. The length of the contract ranges between three months and one year. Students who are admitted to INTERLINK can request a list of apartments that have been recommended by current and former INTERLINK students.

Cost: Fees vary.

Homestay

A limited number of homestays may be available.  Please contact the INTERLINK main office for more information. See options at American Homestay Network.
