On Dec. 16, UNCG’s Office of Housing and Residence Life will relocate to the Jefferson Suites Residence Hall as part of the Ragsdale/Mendenhall renovation. Staff phone numbers and email addresses will remain the same, but the office’s location will be 1501 Spring Garden Street.
In the upcoming Spring semester, the Ragsdale/Mendenhall Residence Hall will be closed for renovation, which includes:
– Adding central air conditioning and an elevator
– New plumbing, vanities, doors, and hardware
– ADA ramps to make the first floor more accessible
– Variety of cosmetic changes in the rooms.
Students assigned to live in Ragsdale/Mendenhall for the Fall 2019 semester will be reassigned to another room for the Spring 2020 semester. Assignments were made by Dec. 1. Housing and Residence Life has offered frequent updates to Ragsdale/Mendenhall residents, including monthly Town Hall meetings.
“Ragsdale/Mendenhall is the last of a group of major renovations in the residence halls that we have been working on for the past eight years, “said Timothy Johnson, executive director of Housing & Residence Life. “We made the decision to wait until spring semester to take the building off-line to be able to accommodate the largest number of residential students for the fall semester. We have been working since last spring to notify students of our plans, so that they would know about the “Big Move,” even before they signed up for the building. We are excited about the renovations coming and very appreciative of the students that signed up to live in the building, despite the move. They have created a great community this fall and we are hopeful they will carry that Ragsdale/Mendenhall spirit to other parts of campus in the spring.”
