Summer Start Housing

Summer Start


The Summer Start program assists incoming students with the transition to NC State through five weeks of academic courses and social activities on campus. Summer Start provides students with a jump-start on their college experience while introducing them to the culture of NC State. To learn more about the program, visit the Summer Start website.

New first-year students should expect to live on-campus during the summer start and the 2022-2023 academic year as required by the First-Year Live On Requirement

Living on-campus, where evening and weekend programs are available, can assist participants in developing skills that are important to the academic and personal success, including:

  • communication skills
  • study skills
  • leadership skills
  • research processes and procedures
  • critical thinking skills
  • time management skills
  • social and networking skills
  • knowledge of campus and student resources
