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. You can study with friends in the Green Room, listen to some music in the first floor lobby, or play some games (pool, ping-pong, foosball) and watch a movie in the Carolina Room or the Craige Coffee House, two large lounge spaces.
During the spring semester, join residents and staff for the annual Craige Rave (CRAVE) and the South Campus Beach Blast, sure to be a good time for all!
“Craige has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere full of first-year students who are eager to take on anything.”– Antoinette, Craige resident
