Residence Halls

NC State has 21 on-campus residence halls configured in the following styles:

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 a community bathroom(s) shared by all of the residents of the floor. In most cases, halls are co-ed but divided into sections by sex. Housekeeping staff cleans the hallways, stairwells and community bathrooms daily. Since each room opens to a long hallway, these spaces are slightly less private than suite-style buildings.

Hall-style buildings include:

Suite-Style Buildings

In suite-style buildings, there are also typically two students per room who share a common bathroom area only used by the suitemates and their visitors. Suites are sex-specific and can house between eight and 12 students. Housekeeping staff cleans the bathroom on a daily basis. Suites offer a more private, intimate atmosphere than hall-style buildings.
