Residence Hall Options

Live in the center of the action—residence halls are close to classes, campus resources, and recreation opportunities. You’re also a short walk from NC State dining halls, which are nationally recognized as among the best in the country. Whether you’re making new friends over a game of pool, taking a break in the study room or gathering your neighbors for movie night, it’s all part of the real college experience.

Who Can Live in a Residence Hall?

If you’re a full-time NC State student, you can live in a residence hall.

 

What Are My Options?

You can live in one of our 20 on-campus residence halls. Some buildings may be reserved exclusively for Living and Learning Village members. Explore your options below:

  • Traditional hall-style buildings: In a traditional hall-style building, the room opens up to a hallway that leads to the rest of the floor with community bathroom(s) shared by all of the residents of the floor. In most cases, halls are co-ed but divided into sections by gender. Housekeeping staff cleans the hallways, stairwells and community bathrooms daily. Since each room opens to a long hallway, these spaces less private than suite-style buildings.
  • Suite-style buildings: In suite-style buildings, there are also typically two students per room that share a common bathroom area only used by the suite-mates and their visitors. Suites are gender-specific and can house between 8 and 12 students. Housekeeping staff cleans the bathroom on a daily basis. Suites offer a more private, intimate atmosphere than hall-style buildings.
  • Hotel-style buildings: Two students share a room with a bathroom. A common space near the service desks brings people together for social and academic events.

Note – University Housing provides general measurements for each residence hall/apartment style on its website and in other printed materials. Because each building is unique, variations exist in room dimensions. University Housing recommends that applicants use measurements as a general guide only. Refunds, credits, room changes, or cancellations will not be granted because of variations in dimensions.
