E-haus has a heavy first-year population, which makes it an ideal community for making the transition to college and meeting others who are eager to get connected to everything going on at Carolina.

What Tar Heels are saying
"I am a first-year currently living in the Ehringhaus Community, and what makes my community unique is that it is full of ways to enjoy the full first-year experience. Nearly everyone in the building is a first-year, so we’re all sharing common experiences and mindsets, which helps us to feel comfortable in our new home. There are also tons of social activities available for the whole building or for each floor, which help our community to feel like just that – a community. My personal favorite feature is our view from my 6th floor woodland side room – the sunrises and sunsets are to die for."

“In celebration of Ehringhaus’ 50th birthday (we determined based on the elevator inspection history), the RA staff threw an amazing party with a wide variety of delicious foods and entertaining games including elevator Survivor and a humongous Twister board”
– Frank, Community Manager
"Living here as a freshmen is a great way to bond and make new friends. The suite-style also helps people in Ehringhaus to become closer by allowing more daily interaction. It is also easy walking distance to every other South campus dorm because it is in the middle area of that region."
– Christina, resident
