Seahawk Crossing

Seahawk Crossing, UNCW's newest residential area, opened in August 2009 and houses 662 students. There are four buildings which make up Seahawk Crossing; buildings 1 and 3 are academic year contracted spaces and buildings 2 and 4 are lease-based spaces. In all four buildings there are 4, 6 and 8 bedroom suites which all have a washer/drier in each unit. In order to live in Seahawk Crossing students must have earned more than 30 credit hours. The majority of the residents in the Crossing are sophomores. Seahawk Crossing is also full of great amenities for residents in the area including two 100 person multipurpose facilities, 12 study rooms, two game rooms with pool, shuffle board, ping pong and fooze ball, as well as a music room. In addition students who chose to live in the Crossing are steps away from a convenience store and Dunkin Donuts, and as well they are able to park in a covered parking structure year-round.

Sophomore Year Experience: Given its temporal location between the excitement and newness of the first-year of college and the more focused experience of the junior and senior years, many find sophomore year to be one marked by considerable and profound questioning of one's personal, academic and career-related goals and aspirations. In recognition of the fact that sophomore year is a unique one in terms of challenges and opportunities, the Seahawk Crossing Staff and the Department of Housing and Residence Life has created a "Sophomore Year Experience" year-long programming series directed to members the Class of 2013.

The goals for the program are to:

  • Assist sophomores in making a successful transition from first year to second year
  • Enhance sophomores' integration into the community
  • Provide opportunities for sophomores to develop relationships with faculty, staff, and advisors, and peers, cultivate student's self-knowledge, and make informed and thoughtful decisions about their future, and to be aware of and utilize resources for academic and personal planning and growth

Seahawk Crossing is UNCW's first LEED certified building and has earned a silver rating. Features that make the Crossing sustainable include:

  • Daylight can be seen in over 90% of Seahawk Crossing
  • Every appliance found in Seahawk Crossing is an energy star product
  • In the common areas of Seahawk Crossing you are breathing 100% outside air
  • Every toilet, faucet and shower head utilizes low flow plumbing

As a sophomore, I love living in the Crossing because it has been the perfect transition from a dorm. It has all of the independence and amenities of an off-campus apartment, with the convenience and support of living on-campus. You get all of this in the Crossing- and it's eco-friendly too!
