Q: How does the process work when choosing a specific room within a residence hall?

A: Please visit the UNC Housing website for more details about the housing selection process.

Q: What are the major changes to the housing selection process for the upcoming year?

A: The major change is that suite selection is now online as part of the overall housing selection process. The online system calls this “groups.” You can create and then share group information, which will allow any of you to place the others into a suite.

Q: Will the fact that my roommate for next year is a rising senior while I am a rising junior affect the housing selection process?

A: You’ll both get different selection times, so the one with the better time should pick for your group.

FAQs: Residence Halls

Q: Which residence halls have the smallest ratio of number of people per bathroom?

A: Hardin, Horton, Koury and Craige North are all suite-style, so each has four students per bathroom.

Q: Which residence halls will be renovated in the future?

A: This summer, Parker, Avery and Teague are getting wood floors, and Hinton James is getting wood floors and renovated bathrooms.  The renovations in Ehringhaus will also finish before fall with the completion of new bathrooms.

Q: I’ve heard rumors that Hardin is going to be an all-female residence hall next year. Is this true?

A: Yes, that is true.  First-year students will mostly be placed on the southern part of campus next year, so an all-female building needs to be available. Also, Parker will become a coed building next year.

Q: Does acceptance in an LLC guarantee placement into the residence hall where the LLC is located?

A: Yes. If you’re accepted into a Living-Learning Community, a space is reserved for you in that residence hall.

FAQs: Studying Abroad

Q: What happens if my roommate ends up studying abroad in the spring? Will I have a single for that semester or will I get a replacement roommate?

A: You could choose to either buy out the space or name a new roommate. If you do not take one of those options, you may be assigned a random roommate.

Q: If one decides to study abroad during the school year, will housing contracts prevent one (monetarily) from doing so? Would another person be added to the room or would the spot be left vacant?

A: Your space might be filled, but there is no penalty charged if you’re studying abroad.

Q: If a friend is studying abroad but doesn’t find out until after housing decisions have been made, could someone else who has already chosen housing take the room for the semester instead?

A: Sure, just contact UNC Housing to work that out.

FAQs: Morrison SuperSuites

NOTE: This information does not pertain to first-year students. First-year students who have not yet arrived on campus should consult the information on our website for FAQs related to new students.

Q: How many SuperSuites are located in Morrison?

A: There are a total of 36 SuperSuites. Most have 6 spaces each (3 double rooms with a common area), but a few have less than that because of building design.

Q: What is the housing selection process for the Morrison SuperSuites for next year?

A: Plans are still being finalized for the SuperSuite selection. An email will be sent to all students and more information will be available on the UNC Housing website once those details are confirmed.

FAQs: Single Rooms

NOTE: This information does not pertain to incoming students. First-year and transfer students who have not yet arrived on campus should consult the information on our website for FAQs related to new students.

Q: Which halls on campus offer single rooms? Are there any other single rooms available on campus that are not in Cobb?

A: Single rooms inventories are available on the Room Comparison Chart.          

Q: What are the possibilities of getting a single room as a rising sophomore? How hard is it to get a single through the Housing Selection Process?

A: It’s very unlikely that a rising sophomore would be able to select a single, because there are very few singles in general. Also, there will be many current juniors/seniors who are trying to get single rooms.
