If you live in Hinton James, Craige, Ehringhaus, Avery, Parker, or Teague, you will have your dresser, wardrobes, and a desk built-in to your wall (example shown to the right)
A list of What to Bring and What Not to Bring can be found on the Move-In Guide and on the Your Room website page. Be sure to coordinate with your roommate(s)!
Sure; you should register it for free with UNC Police to deter theft and aid in identification if your bike is ever lost or stolen. We also recommend that you purchase a quality U-lock to secure your bicycle to exterior racks which are located outside every residence hall. UNC now offers Tar Heel Bikes, a convenient and cost-effective bike sharing program. For more info, visit the Transportation & Parking: Bike Share website.
Laundry facilities are located either in your residence hall or in a neighboring building in your residential community. Our brand-new laundry units are entirely free to use! For more information about laundry services, visit our Laundry & Auxiliary Services page!

Pizza lover? Learn about Meal Swips, Plus Swipes, Flex, and how to eat like at Tar Heel! Visit the Carolina Dining Services website for more information!
You will be responsible for the cleanliness of your own room, disposing of trash and leaving all public areas in clean condition. The housekeeping staff will clean the public areas as well as the hall/suite bathrooms.
EXCEPTION: Residents of Craige North, Hardin, Koury, Horton, Morrison supersuites, and Ram Village must clean their own bathroom and provide toilet paper since housekeeping staff cannot access the suite bathroom in those buildings.
We strongly encourage you to invest in additional property insurance for your student’s belongings. UNC does not endorse any individual insurance program but does encourage parents and students to make sure they have the protection they desire for student property. You may have homeowner’s insurance; however, not all homeowner policies cover everything students bring to school. Most will provide some coverage but have limitations on certain property. You should check with your insurance agent to determine what is and what is not covered under your policy and what the deductibles are for property away from your principal residence.
The University has no legal obligation to pay for loss or damage to items of personal property caused by residents or by occurrences such as flood, weather, or mechanical-related events which occur in University Housing or on its grounds prior to, during, or subsequent to the period of the housing contract.
The Office of Student Accounts and University receives bills for Housing, not Carolina housing directly. Please visit University Cashier website for more details!
The Community Living Standards are the rules and policies that you will be held accountable for as a resident of campus housing. As a legally binding adjunct to your Housing Contract, these standards ensure UNC’s residential communities are conducive to academic success. Visit the Community Living Standards website to educate yourself on expectations.
The complete mailing address is required on all letters, packages and overnight deliveries sent to on-campus residents. To find your mailing address, go to the MyHousing Portal and click on “My Assignment.” Always provide friends and family with your complete mailing address.
Letters, packages, and overnight deliveries are automatically routed to the Package Center zoned for each building. Residents will receive an email from Housing Package Centers when mail is available for pick-up. The email will include the pick-up location, hours of operation and the package tracking number.

Do I need to bring a printer?
No! CCI printers are located in each community for students to use, and each student has fees allocated for printing on their account. More information about CCI printing visit the Help website.
Want to bring your own anyways? Make sure you can connect it with a USB connection. Wireless printers don’t work consistently on our network, so we recommend plugging them into your computer with a USB cord.
What are the internet options in my room?
Will Smart Home devices work?
