3) Emotional Support Animal (ESA)
To get a special housing accommodation for an Emotional Support Animal, you need to do the following:

  1. Register with OARS
  2. Provide documentation supporting your request for a special housing accommodation to OARS
  3. Complete the 2021-22 Request for Special Housing Accommodation Form.If you are approved for an ESA. You will be invited to a meeting to review and sign the ESA agreement. After that meeting, you will be allowed to bring the ESA to your room.

Note:
We don’t have as many SHA needs as we have rooms with SHA features. If you find that you are assigned to an SHA room, but you don’t need these services, certain features will be there, but will not be activated. (i.e. strobes will never flash.)

INTERLINK

INTERLINK Language Centers offer intensive English instruction, academic preparation, and cross-cultural orientation for students, scholars, and professionals on a year-round basis. The program prepares students for challenging careers, and provides the tools and skills needed to achieve success in the 21st century. Upon graduation, many students go on to study in academic programs at UNCG or other area universities. A member of the Interlink office contacts the housing office at the start of each Interlink session with the number of students requiring housing. These students are assigned to a temporary/community room in Phillips/Hawkins for one week. This gives the students a chance to decide if they would like to continue to live on campus or to move off campus. If the Interlink student decides to stay on campus, they are moved to a permanent assignment.
