The Honors Carolina first year residential community offers a living-learning environment in which sharing ideas and forging friendships take center stage. Conversations from the classroom spill over into the study lounge. Suitemates bond over meals at the dining hall and explore a variety of academic, cultural, service, and athletic events together. With this community as a launch pad, you can begin building your Carolina network from day one.
Students who join the community are housed in either Horton Residence Hall or Hinton James Residence Hall and are paired with a first year Honors Carolina roommate. If you have a specific roommate request, you will have an opportunity to submit that information via the online UNC housing application. Students requesting to live with a student who is not a member of Honors Carolina are not guaranteed a space in the Honors Carolina first year residential community.
