The Mannings Neighborhood offers a small-community atmosphere in the vibrant setting of southern campus. Residents enjoy the privacy of a four-person “Jack and Jill” style suite, as well as various opportunities to meet new friends at community events.
Only a few minutes’ walk from the Dean Dome, Kenan Stadium, Chase Dining Hall at Rams Head Plaza, and beautiful study spaces in the Student and Academic Services buildings, Manning West places residents near the center of action. Both of Manning West’s buildings were completed in 2002.
The Manning Block Party, est. 2008, has quickly become a Carolina tradition. Manning East and Manning West throw this enormous annual bash, which includes live student performances, plenty of free food, and a connection to a philanthropic cause. Past Manning Block Parties have raised money for the Children’s Miracle Network and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
“A lot of first-years so everybody is really excited to be here, and it's very easy to create a bond among the whole hall. All you have to do is open your door, and you can see everybody up and down the hall. This makes it easy for everybody to stay informed and connected with each other.”–Nicolas, Manning resident
“Manning East is the greatest: whether you are a first-year or a junior, it is super easy to meet people. The (Manning) dorms are great, because they are the perfect balance between the fun, social dorms of south campus and the quieter more studious dorms of north campus.”–Anagha, Manning resident
“You share your bathroom with only three others! And you are one of the closest to the Dean Dome – short walk to basketball games!”–Seyram, Manning resident
“Manning West is a very diverse community with a lot of character, and it’s a great place to live!”– Elizabeth, Manning resident
