The University of North Carolina Greensboro is a challenging, supportive and engaged community where learning is carried forward to “Do something bigger altogether.” Founded in 1891, UNCG is the largest and most diverse university in the Triad, serving more than 19,000 students. Standing apart from other universities, the UNCG community is joined together by a shared value: We define excellence not only by the people we attract, but by the meaningful contributions they make.

75 percent of the students are undergraduates. While 89 percent are from North Carolina, students come from 46 other states and over 90 foreign countries. Minority enrollment is 25 percent, including 20 percent black students. The ratio of faculty to students is 1:16.7. About 30 percent of the students live on campus.

UNCG was ranked among the nation's top colleges in The Best 373 Colleges guide in The Princeton Review for the 11th year in a row. The Princeton Review also named UNCG one of the 133 Best Southeastern Colleges.

    Greensboro, North Carolina, United States

    The 200-acre campus is located near the center of Greensboro, the state's third largest city. The greater Triad area, comprising Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point, has a population approaching one million. Greensboro has been rated by a national survey as the nation's second most attractive place to live, based on climate, health, transportation, crime rate and prosperity. It is the home of five major colleges and universities. Situated midway between Washington, DC, and Atlanta, Georgia, Greensboro is one hour's drive from the Research Triangle (including Chapel Hill), two hours from the mountains, and about three hours from the Outer Banks and other beaches. It is a dynamic city, offering a splendid setting for a university. In return, UNCG has enriched Greensboro with its widely diversified academic community for more than one hundred years.

    Campus facilities include the ten-story air-conditioned Jackson Library, two gymnasiums, Elliott University Center, the 2,330-seat Aycock Auditorium, campus art center, state-of-the-art music building, and a new baseball stadium and student recreation fields.
