Future Residents

Future Residents

At Carolina, you can live and study on one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, where exciting events and incredible opportunities are always just a short walk away. Our campus is home to 8,500 students - almost half of our undergraduate student body.

Live Connected
By living on campus, you’ll stay in touch with the heartbeat of Carolina. You’ll be centrally located near classes, libraries, dining halls, campus events, happenings in the Pit, the bustle of Franklin Street, and other “can’t miss” cornerstones of the Carolina experience. You’ll create strong, enduring bonds with people you might not have otherwise met.

Live with Choices
You’ll also have your choice of building styles, room arrangements, and communities. Wherever you live, you’ll be supported by a professional staff of resident advisors and community directors to ease your transition to college.

Live Assured
And with campus police and residence hall staff on call 24 hours each day, you’ll breathe easier knowing that your safety is our first priority.

You have the rest of your life to live off campus, so don’t miss this chance to join your classmates and live the Carolina experience!

We look forward to having you on campus. Please contact us at housing@unc.edu if you have any questions about the process of getting a room or apartment on campus. We are happy to help!
