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.

University Housing assigns students to spaces based on when your application is received. We recommend applying early.

What Are My Options?

You can choose from 20 on-campus residence halls. 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.
