Ram Village FAQ

Ram Village FAQ

Ram Village is an on-campus apartment community designed for undergrads. This vibrant area is right in the heart of south campus, offering privacy and convenience. 

What Is Ram Village?

Ram Village opened in Fall 2006 and provides undergraduate apartment-style housing to UNC students. The community is comprised of five separate buildings, clustered in two locations:  Ram Village 1, 2, and 3 are located between Craige Residence Hall and Craige parking deck; Taylor Hall (Ram Village 4) and Ram Village 5 neighbor Hinton James, situated just steps from the Dean E. Smith Center and the Kenan-Flagler Business School.

Apartments are prioritized for upper class students, particularly seniors and juniors. The apartments feature private and double occupancy bedrooms with students sharing bathrooms, kitchen, and living room.  All apartment communities feature a Community Office, study space, and common laundry and recreation rooms.  Ram Village facilities are co-ed with apartments consisting of same-sex roommates.

How Is Ram Village Different From Baity Hill/Mason Farm?

  • Ram Village is for undergrads, while Baity Hill and Mason Farm are for graduate students and undergrads/graduates with families.
  • There's no monthly rent for Ram Village apartments. Students pay by semester just like they would do with our residence halls. Baity Hill and Mason Farm have monthly rental rates. Visit our Rates page for up-to-date costs.
  • Also, Ram Village apartments are furnished whereas most apartments in Baity Hill/Mason Farm are not.

What Type of Apartments Does Ram Village Have?

Ram Village has 1 to 4 bedroom apartments where each student gets a private bedroom. There are also 3 bedroom shared apartments whereas each apartment houses six students. For an experience similar to the Morrison supersuites, think about living in Ram Village 2. Many of the apartments in this building have double occupancy bedrooms, so you can live with five of your closest friends.

How Do I Apply to Ram Village? When Do I Apply?

The process is the same for Ram Village as it is for our residence halls. Refer to the Housing Selection Process page for more information.

Two things of note:

  • First-year students are not eligible to live at Ram Village.
  • Juniors and seniors are given priority to live in Ram Village. (Whether the student lives on campus at the time of application to Ram Village is not a factor in the process, and all interested students are encouraged to apply.)

Does Ram Village Close Over Breaks?

Ram Village apartments remain open over the Winter Break (unlike residence halls) and allows students to extend their lease over the summer for an additional fee.

Students have the option to live in Ram Village during Summer Break if they are attending summer classes at UNC. For those with a spring assignment in a Ram Village apartment, you will be assigned to your same apartment for the summer. If you are assigned to an apartment for the fall term, the housing office will assign you to that apartment if it is available. Apartments are only available to students with a spring or fall assignment to an apartment.
