Residence Halls

“C-Mike, you know you like!”

Completed in 1986, Carmichael bears the name of Katherine Kennedy Carmichael, the first dean of women.  Last renovated in 2008, this six-floor, suite-style residence hall holds up to 485 students, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to make friends.  Invite your suitemates to watch your favorite show in the "fishbowl" – a meeting space and TV lounge – or enjoy late night pancakes with one of the 10 Resident Advisors.

Can't decide between north and south campus?  Carmichael is a happy medium.  Located at the heart of UNC's campus, this community is situated nearly equidistant from Lenoir Dining Hall and the Rams Head Center .

Football games in Kenan Memorial Stadium are just steps away. If you’re looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle, fear not – Carmichael is surrounded by the Student Rec Center gym, Belk Track, and Kessing outdoor pool.  

Looking for a single room Carmichael has over 50 singles available.  Enjoy all of the amenities this community has to offer, plus have a room to yourself. 

Makerspace in Carmichael

Within Carmichael Residence Hall there is a Makerspace that opened up in Fall 2017. This space is a joint effort between Carolina Housing, BeAM, and Kenan Flagler Entrepreneurial Hub. Find more information here or watch the video to get an idea of what the Makerspace is all about! 

Feel the Parker Love!

What is Parker Love? It is the Community’s twist on the Carolina Way, a catch phrase and source of pride for the residents. This pride is shown through many community events and programs, such as the Community Luau and Haunted House. 

Parker Community is centrally located on Stadium Drive, which means it is an easy walk to any part of campus and a perfect location for game days in the fall. Parker is situated nearly equidistant from both dining halls and both gyms, and has suite-style floor plan that many residents love.

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

My staff is great and is really dedicated to improving the lives of those who live here.  There is always something going on or music playing (not too loud, though!)”

Brittany, Carmichael Resident Advisor

“My favorite event was when the UNC men’s basketball team played in the Carrier Classic on Veteran’s Day. The projector screen was just put up in the ballroom, so we had a big viewing party. I remember sitting there with about 100 other Tar Heels and lots of food, just getting to know each other and enjoying the game. Now we have viewing parties for almost every game.”

– Brittany, Carmichael Resident Advisor
