As part of its Strategic Housing Plan, UNCG is looking at areas where it may expand. South of campus – along Lee Street and one-two blocks into the Glenwood neighborhood as far as Haywood Street – is a strong possibility. A convenient pedestrian passageway under the railroad tracks is envisioned, to connect the current campus area with additional student housing, retail and restaurants on the other side. Also envisioned is an indoor recreation center, parking facility and consolidated police station. UNCG has been communicating with and meeting with residents of the Glenwood neighborhood about the possibilities.
