4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great. I have lived on campus both of my years at Carolina so far and there's a great feeling of camaraderie with the people that live around you. The rooms are of decent size and the furthest you can be from main campus is about a 15 minute walk. Overall I have loved living on campus so far and I will probably continue to do it until I graduate.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I currently do not live on campus at the University.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Close to classes and good for social life. The rooms are a little small but other than that it's fine!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: While I haven't been into quite every dorm, there are a few styles that summarize housing on campus. Freshmen (unless you live in Granville) will be in suite-style dorms that look one of two ways - hardwood floors, built-in closet space, overall a nice feel, but pretty small rooms - or much larger rooms with tile floors and less appealing furniture. The former setup has you sharing a bathroom with 7 other people, the latter, with 3 other people. I really only wanted to have to share with 3, but the drawback is your bathrooms aren't cleaned, and if you have nasty suite mates like I do, it can be a real problem lol. After freshmen year, the world is your oyster. There are many, many building with hall style options, a few suite-style options, apartment complexes from the university like Rams and Odum, and a plethora of off-campus housing. And of course there's Granville. I've never even been inside so I'm not the authority, but from people I've spoken to I think you definitely need to have a certain mindset to enjoy your time there. Overall, you have plenty of options, but none of them are stunning. Pretty generic.

Campus Housing: The dorms at UNC are fine. Rooms and bathrooms are good-average sized, and the bathrooms aren;t too bad. There are dorm events often and kind staff and RA's.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many undergraduates choose to reside on campus at UNC. Perhaps that is because the dorms on campus are quite nice or because of the myriad of social activities that are accesible on campus. One attractive feature of UNC housing is its convenience, as it stands right next to Franklin Street and as close as you can get to classes. Among traditional dorms and suite style dorms, UNC also offers living and learning communities with different themes for those interested in interacting with hallmates who share the same interests. Most living communities feature a recreational area, laundry facility, and outdoor sports area nearby. Dorms also come equipped with cooking supplies, movies, vacuums, and even gaming consoles for students to use.

UNC even offers a free "Fix My Room" service where residents report problems and someone on staff will come by promptly to fix the issues. UNC often spends time and money upgrading the dorms over the summer to give students a more comfortable and satisfying experience. Overall, students at UNC are happy with their living arrangements on campus, and many find their closest friends through residential life.
