3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's like any other living situation, in that it depends greatly on your roommates and friends. I haven't had the best experiences with my roommates, but the places I've lived have been alright! The Crossing and Landing are both very spacious and clean, but the freshman/ non lease housing areas can be sub-par. I lived in the University Apartments my first year and it was such a tight space, with thin walls and it wasn't very clean.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a good choice for students that wish to be close to campus facilities. Class buildings, recreation center, and all other campus buildings and services are within walking distance of any campus owned housing. The cost is high but provide an option to students like myself with a place to live that they don't have to worry about working to pay the rent of an apartment and can instead focus thier valuable time in the library working on homework. The residence staff is always on call and ready to answer any questions that a resident may have because most of the staff are fellow students that can show newcomers around and give good advice for campus and college student life.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived on campus my freshmen year and then chose to live off campus the following years. It saved me a lot of money!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I appreciated the suite-style housing format.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus freshman year in a dorm is definitely an experience that everyone should have. It can be horrible because of the small spaces and gross bathroom from sharing them with so many other people. But it is the easiest way to meet new people and make close friends. It is also nice to live on campus for the connivence of being close to campus. There are pros and cons of living on campus but it is worth it just for the experience.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

On-campus housing provides such amazing experiences for students, from freshman year all the way to senior year. Freshmen are guaranteed housing, and about 90 percent of freshmen take it because of the great, unique experience it provides for new UNCW Seahawks. Freshman housing is all about options because there are quite a few varieties of housing styles from which to choose. Suite-style, traditional hall-style, women's housing, learning communities, honors and international housing, and pod-style and apartment layouts are options available to freshmen. To obtain primary choices, first-year students should put in preferences early. However, pretty much everyone absolutely loves wherever they live freshman year—no matter which hall it is—and will favor their hall as "the best." Some of these residence halls are older, but all have air conditioning and daily housekeeping for the halls and bathrooms, and any maintenance requests are quickly responded to for free. Cornerstone Hall houses the newest freshman housing, with painted walls instead of cinder blocks, and has the learning-community housing style. The environments in the residence halls are so important during the first year, and students should not pass up the opportunity. Not only do students meet so many new friends and participate in social experiences, but they also are able to form study groups and meet people within their majors.

After freshman year, upperclassman apartments are great options, as they feature modern amenities, and spacious and convenient living arrangements. It's such a great decision to stay on campus all four years because of the immense convenience to classes and campus involvement. The residential living communities are in an "L" shape around the backside of UNCW, and it is typically around a 10- to 15-minute walk to class, but a lot quicker with a bike or skateboard.
