Lord Commander Jeor Mormont plans to re-garrison the castle with men from the Shadow Tower, but on the advice of Qhorin Halfhand, they choose Stonedoor over it, due to Greyguard's dire straits.
A Storm of Swords
The party of wildlings that Jon Snow attaches himself to descends from the Wall at Greyguard.

A Dance with Dragons
Lord Commander Jon Snow decides to re-garrison Greyguard with thirty men - ten from Castle Black, ten from the Shadow Tower and ten from King Stannis Baratheon - under the command of Janos Slynt. Slynt refuses to follow Jon's orders, the second time publicly, which leads Jon to execute him.
Jon later considers Ser Alliser Thorne as Janos Slynt's replacement, but he instead orders Greyguard to be re-garrisoned with a grizzled steward from the Shadow Tower in command.
