What Tar Heels are Saying
“I love that everything is close. I can choose between dining halls, have a 10 minute walk to the campus quad, and can take part in both the freshman craziness and more serious upperclassmen activities.”
--Kathleen, Avery resident
“I love being able to see the baseball field from the balcony . I enjoy watching the team practice while I sit outside and do homework.”
--Will, Avery resident
“When we won the men's soccer national championship, the entirety of celebrated, because the players live upstairs. We were able to sing the alma mater with Ehringhaus and it truly felt like home.”
--Kate, Parker resident
“It has the hominess of south campus halls and the closeness/convenience of north campus halls, plus food and the gym couldn't be closer. Literally perfect”
--Alexia, Teague resident
