More Than Just a Place to Live

Students move into their on-campus residence halls in the 80s.

When Big Red Envelopes arrived earlier this year, incoming students were eager to learn when they would be able to move onto NC State’s amazing campus. Beginning Fall 2017, all first-year students are required to live in university housing at NC State. We will highlight the top ten things that students can expect and look forward to in the upcoming academic year daily.

1. It is More Than Just A Place to Live

University Housing at NC State strives to be a place where students feel comfortable, included, and respected. Residence halls foster personal growth and development while providing an enjoyable, social atmosphere. Residence advisors (RAs), University Housing staff and residence hall councils work to create fun, interactive spaces for students to enjoy. There are opportunities to get involved in individual residence hall councils or the Inter-Residence Council to plan and assist with events campus-wide.
