Residence Halls

Welcome to Ram Village!

If you love the community atmosphere but want a bit more independence, Ram Village Community is the place for you! Our residents love having a full kitchen and a living room, as well as the option to have a private bedroom. For an experience similar to the Morrison super-suites, think about living in Ram Village 2. Many of the apartments in this building have double occupancy bedrooms, so you can live with five of your closest friends. An added perk of living in Ram Village is the proximity to the Dean Smith Center, which makes basketball season extra exciting! Within walking distance of all academic buildings and campus resources, this is the perfect place to be on your own while still having the Carolina experience.  

The community is comprised of five separate buildings, clustered in two locations:  Ram Village 1, 2, and 3 are located between Craige Residence Hall and Craige parking deck; Taylor Hall and Ram Village 5 neighbor Hinton James situated just steps from the Dean E. Smith Center and the Kenan-Flagler Business School.

Residents in all five buildings enjoy a short walk to Chase Dining Hall at Rams Head Plaza, Rams Market and Rams Head Recreation Center. 

Ram Village Community is known for its lively events throughout the year.  The annual Ram Village Blastat the end of the school year brings the whole community out for food, games, and lots of fun – it’s one not to be missed!
