Get Started with University Housing

When you live on campus, you’ll be at the heart of the Wolfpack nation, making it easy to be a part of all that NC State has to offer. Whether you’re looking for the close-knit community of a village or the diverse social opportunity of a traditional residence hall, we have the housing option that’s right for you.

University Housing NC State

What to Do First

Apply for housing:  The Housing Application for the 2020-2021 academic year will open on February 24, 2020 at 9:00 a.m.  You should complete your University Housing and Living and Learning Village application as soon as possible. Students who have received acceptance for the Fall semester may access the housing application through the Campus Living section on MyPack Portal. If you decide not to attend NC State, you can cancel your housing application without penalties.

Consider a Living and Learning Village:  With 15 Living and Learning Villages, there are options to find a community that’s right for you. Villages are communities of students joined by the same academic, personal or lifestyle interests, whether that’s a passion for the arts or a commitment to conservation. When you belong to a village, you live and learn in an inclusive, one-of-a-kind community—and make lifelong friends in the process. The Village experience is not required, except for First Year students in the Exploratory Studies program.  Discover all the options and find one that’s right for you!

Find a Roommate: Residents are assigned a roommate based on the lifestyle questions completed during the housing application process.  If you already know who you want to live with, make sure that you have both applied and have both formed a “roommate group” in the housing system.  If you’re looking for someone who might be a good fit and want to create new friendships, you’re invited to use the roommate matching tool found within the Housing Application.

After You Apply for Housing

Make changes if necessary:  Changes to your housing application can be made using MyPack Portal until you’re assigned. Once you’re assigned, changes can be made by University Housing staff only.

See your housing assignment:  Housing assignments are released in late-June for the upcoming academic year.
