University Housing Reopening for Spring Semester

Students who lived on campus or were granted exception to remain on campus in fall 2020 will have first priority in spring housing assignments and do not need to resubmit a housing application. The priority deadline is Oct. 1.

As part of NC State University’s plan for the spring 2021 semester, students are invited to return to on-campus housing in spring 2021 at a reduced capacity. 

Applications are now open, and students who started the fall semester in on campus housing will have first priority at returning. In order to help in University Housing’s planning, those students must indicate their intent to return by completing the Spring 2021 Housing Request form. For students who indicate their wish to return, University Housing will re-activate their 2020-21 housing application and assign them to a room. Because on-campus housing will be reduced for the semester, students who qualify for priority consideration are encouraged to complete the housing request form before the priority deadline of Thursday, October 1.

Similarly, students who were allowed to remain in campus housing this fall also qualify for first priority housing in the spring semester, and must complete the Spring 2021 Housing Plan form. Once the form is submitted, University Housing staff will update the student’s information for the spring semester. To qualify for priority consideration, this form must also be submitted by October 1.

“Our top priority remains the health and safety of our students and the Wolfpack community,” said Donna McGalliard, assistant vice chancellor and executive director of University Housing. “We appreciate your time and understanding as we together work to Protect the Pack, and we look forward to seeing you on campus in January.”

What Else to Expect in the Spring

  • Occupancy will be in single rooms for the spring semester.
  • Double rooms assigned as singles will remain at the double room rate.
  • Suites will be limited to a maximum of four residents.
  • North Hall will be offline for the spring semester.
  • Apartments in Wolf Village and Wolf Ridge will be assigned based on regular occupancy.
  • Fall 2020 room assignments are not guaranteed for the spring semester. As space permits, however, University Housing will try to assign returning students into the same building.
  • Living Learning Villages will have reduced housing options in the spring. Students already accepted to a Village in the fall, but not assigned to a Village space for the spring, will still have the opportunity to participate in Village programs and activities.
  • NC State will more aggressively enforce its Code of Conduct, Community Standards, and state mandates. Anyone found in violation of these standards may be removed from University Housing. 
  • Student Health Services is currently developing a strategy for on-campus testing. Testing will be available for symptomatic individuals and close contacts through Student Health Services. Surveillance testing for asymptomatic individuals will be continued and will be determined by the rate of community transmission.
