Guest Housing

NC State seeks to offer a convenient and affordable option for short-term guests to the university’s main campus.

Accommodations from a minimum of five nights to a maximum of four months are available for visitors sponsored by a university employee or department.

Guest apartments are available in several communities across NC State’s campus and offer a variety of levels of service and amenities. The majority of our guest housing units are located at E.S. King Village and feature independent one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments with an efficiency kitchen. A limited number of luxury guest accommodations are available as space permits in locations across campus, including Wolf Village and Wolf Ridge and in several of our primary residential communities.


  • Guests must be affiliated with NC State University as:
    1. A visiting faculty/staff member;
    2. A sponsored guest of an NC State University department or current faculty/staff member;
    3. A prospective student during an official university visit; or
    4. The private guest of an NC State University employee or current University Housing resident.


Guest housing is limited to stays of a minimum of five (5) nights, and a maximum of three months during an academic year. Reservations must be made via our website at least one week prior to your requested arrival date. Reservation requests are reviewed in the order in which they are received. After submitting an online request, a confirmation email will be sent if a room is available for the date(s) you indicated. If space is not available, you will receive an email indicating as such. You can expect a response within 2-4 business days after we receive your request.
