Future Residents: How to Apply for Housing

New student move-in on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

You may apply for housing starting Friday, February 2nd, 2024 if you have been admitted to UNC as a First-Year student. Coming in as a transfer student? You can learn more on our Transfer and International Students page!

You must pay your enrollment deposit (or defer the deposit if you are receiving financial aid) to the University before you can apply for campus housing. If you are having trouble accessing the application, this is the reason why. 

It usually takes up to 3 days after you make the enrollment payment for you to be in the system. Only then can you apply for Housing. Kindly, be patient.

Housing is not first come, first served. All applications received before May 29 will be processed with equal priority. You will need your ONYEN to access the housing application at the Housing Portal.

Housing offers several Residential Learning Programs (RLPs) suitable for students centered around topics as varied as sustainability, healthy lifestyles, language, cultural diversity, gender studies, and community service.

The RLP application option will be visible in the dropdown menu after your housing application is complete the and housing contract signed

Students create a home in our on-campus communities, build life-long friendships and develop skills for their current and future successes as they journey through their Carolina experience. Explore the Halls based on your preferences!
