Love Where You Live!

Welcome to UNCW’s on-campus living experience!  Our Residence Hall staff provides an engaging community helping students reach their goals, live smart, and be supported.

Did you know that research indicates students who live on-campus earn higher GPA’s and are more likely to graduate on time?

Our residence halls, suites, and apartments provide students with an affordable, convenient, and welcoming experience. We also now have a mandatory freshmen housing requirement for details click here.

But not just any campus offers all that UNCW does such as convenience, proximity to classes, lots of greenspace and hiking trails, and located minutes from the beach!

You will live connected and have opportunities to attend our Annual events such as Dub Idol and Hawk It Out not to mention the volleyball, basketball courts, game rooms, and our UNCW Campus Recreation Center.  You will have numerous opportunities to be involved and become part of the UNCW community.

Our residence halls include programming spaces, technologically advanced study spaces, and best of all you will avoid the hassle of multiple bills and grocery shopping; living on-campus is an all-inclusive payment (rent, cable, internet, water, and phone).  We have over 100 plus cable channels, free laundry machines on each floor, vending/ice machines, high-speed internet, and iPrint stations in every area just to name a few of the amenities we offer.

Life at the "Dub" will ensure that you are close to things you need and within a short walking distance to academic buildings as well as on-campus convenience stores, and we have a variety of campus dining locations for your convenience and a variety of options for every palate.
