The Housing Application Renewal Process is an online application allowing current spring-term residents to select their building/room/roommate for the following year. Housing Selection will be open during the last two weeks of February and the first week of March. In January, all students will receive an email linking them to information explaining the process.
University Housing offers nine living and learning villages as opportunities for students to engage in active and collaborative learning with peers, faculty, and staff. The Living and Learning Villages, partnerships between University Housing and academic departments, were created to help cultivate residents' passions ranging from science and education to engineering and the arts.
The Villages excel in helping students integrate classroom learning with real-world, hands-on experience.
A Village is a place where
- People of diverse backgrounds and perspectives live, work, and learn together
- Students, faculty, and staff interact frequently, both formally and informally
- Students feel supported as members of a community
- Partnerships drive planning, implementing, learning, and teaching
- Programs and services act as a magnet for all members of the University community

The Housing Agreements are located here for your review.
The academic year costs are billed by term. Fall term charges are sent to the Cashier's Office in early July, and charges for spring term are typically sent mid-November. Termination charges, damage charges, etc., are sent on a daily basis as appropriate. Rates are subject to change annually. Payments must be made in accordance with University Cashier's Office deadlines.
If something in your room is broken and needs repair, you can submit a work order for assistance.
Community Standards & Guidelines cover everything you need to know about campus living, from alcohol rules and disciplinary procedures to quiet hours and visitation.
All residence halls will close during the Thanksgiving holiday, winter break and spring break. See Holiday Closings for detailed information. Wolf Village Apartments do not close during breaks.
Because most of our residents have never shared a room with anyone prior to attending college, we ask that all residents complete a roommate agreement. This agreement outlines acceptable behavior between roommates and covers issues such as borrowing, study time and guests. Resident Advisors (RAs) can assist roommates with conflict resolution. If resolution cannot be negotiated, Residence Directors (RDs) can authorize a room change based on available space.
Each resident's room is equipped with Residential Network (ResNet) service. ResNet is a mandatory charge and is in addition to the cost of housing.
Wireless availability is becoming more prevalent in public areas on campus. All residential buildings include at least one wireless "hotspot", usually in a lounge or lobby. A large number of other campus buildings are also wireless such as the student centers and dining facilities as are numerous outside meeting spaces.
Cable is an optional service and is billed separately from housing. Please visit the ComTech Web site for more information.
University Housing is dedicated to providing campus living space for students with disabilities who request ADA-accessible rooms.
For more information, please see ADA Accommodations under Prospective or Current Students on the University Housing website. Once we receive your request for an accessible room, a member of the Housing Assignments office will contact you.
If you have questions, please send us an email or call (919) 515-2440.
Information on how to cancel your application/assignment is available online here.
The first step is to cancel your on-campus housing by clicking on the cancellation link located on the Housing Self-Service Page in the MyPack Portal.
- You are charged two hundred dollars ($300) plus daily charges for moving to Greek Village within thirty days (30) from the first day of classes for the fall or spring terms.
- Daily charges plus fifty percent (50%) of the price of the remaining Agreement term (fall and spring terms) will apply when moving to Greek Village after thirty days (30) from the first day of classes each term.
For questions about the process, students should contact the Housing Assignments office by phone at (919) 515-2440 or by email.
Campus safety is a shared responsibility. University Housing partners with University Police and Campus Fire Protection to educate and inform residents about safety issues. Some common sense things to remember are:
- always keep your room locked
- never let someone you do not know into the building
- always travel at night in groups, using lit paths
Each residential building is equipped with state-of-the art smoke detection and fire suppression systems that are linked to the Campus Police office.
The University does not insure residents' belongings. Check to see if your parents' homeowner's insurance will cover your belongings at school. Property Insurance is also available from most insurance companies. Is it property insurance we want to say here or renter's insurance?
We update the Housing website continuously, so check it often for important information, dates, and deadlines. Twice monthly, University Housing will send you an email directing you to the Front Porch, an e-newsletter with interesting stories and details covering on-campus events.top of page
