Craige is one of the oldest communities on campus. Named for North Carolina lawyer and politician Burton Craige, this high-rise community was built in 1962 and was remodeled over the summer of 2012. Craige’s landmark bridge from Manning Drive to the front entrance makes it unique from the other communities on South Campus and has become a great spot to gather with friends.

Craige community is located near all of the South Campus hotspots, including the Dean Smith Center, Student and Academic Services Buildings, Rams Head facilities (dining, market and Subway, and gym), and optimal bus routes.
Whether you enjoy studying or socializing, or a bit of both, there is a spot for you here in Craige.
