5 months after fire, UNCG students move into Spartan Village

GREENSBORO, N.C. — UNC-Greensboro’s Spartan Village opened to students Wednesday, five months after a fire destroyed one of the buildings under construction.

The mix-use development includes four residence halls, a gym and faculty housing. Students will be able to move in to three of the dorms throughout the week.

Officials announced in July that a propane heater likely started the four-alarm blaze at the Highland Residence Hall.

No injuries were reported, but the structure was a total loss with an estimated $11 to 12 million in damage.

Construction resumed this summer on the last dorm and will finish this winter.
