What’s Behind the Desk? 5 Things to Know about Carolina Housing

We’re the people who give you your keys. We’re the people you call when your room is being cold (we’re sorry – it happens!). We’re the people who tell you that dogs aren’t allowed in the dorms (we’re even more sorry!) and we’re the people who gave you your friend group (because you live with them – duh!). But do you know who WE actually are? Who are these mysterious people that answer your emails and send you reminders about when to move out? Here is an exclusive behind the desk look at some of the things that make us Carolina Housing.

1. Where are we?

For all the new students and for all the clueless students, Housing is actually closer to you than you think!!! We are located on South Campus in SASB North. The moment you walk in you can see our open doors and really, really, nice tv. There’s also cushy seating so you could probably do homework there if you really wanted.

2. Who is ACTUALLY behind the desk?

So there is a desk right when you walk in the office. At this desk sits the biggest ball of sunshine, Alex. She isn’t just there to greet you – she also helps assign people to their rooms and deals with all your housing complaints over email!

You should come in and say hi to her!

3. Housing Homies ( the Interns)

Oh wait, that’s us! Yes, us four lovely ladies are the secret typers of Carolina Housing. I guess not so secret anymore. We bring you the ins and out of Carolina Housing, and yeah, we’re kind of your voice too. We’re students that get to give back input. So much power!

We love our job and we love each other and we’re always trying to make someone smile. 🙂

4. What’s backstage?

Backstage we have a lot of desks, offices, a kitchen, a table, and a lot of awesome people. Getting you guys housing is a lot of work – year round! We don’t stop during the summer either! I’d show you pictures, but, we gotta keep some things a secret right?

You’ll come back here if you ever win one of our prizes… hint hint. Stay tuned for some more giveaways!

5. The People

Finally, the last thing you should know about us is that Carolina Housing is full of really awesome people who love Carolina and who love you!

We really do want you to be happy to live here and have the full Carolina experience.

We’re also a little community. We talk to each other, get excited for each other, and have successes and failures.

We laugh together, we work together, and make Carolina memories together.

We’re just like you! We hope you stop by and chat with us – we always want to know what students are thinking.
