First Year Housing

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. Hallmates 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 Cobb 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 may request to live with a student who is not a member of Honors Carolina, but priority will be given to members of Honors Carolina. Please note that if we have more requests for Cobb than we can accommodate, overflow honors housing will be located in the nearby Lower Quad Community.

How to join: Click here to complete the required online housing application prior to the May 29 deadline. You must select Cobb Residence Hall as your top choice.
