Military/Veteran Residence Hall & Dining Packages

On Campus Living Options for Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH)

At UNC, we strive to provide you with a great education and an affordable campus living options. We have developed this plan for our military and veteran students to assist with this mission. Continuing our goals to meet and exceed the Principles of Excellence and the 8 Keys to Success, we have established a military and veteran student residence community in Decker Hall right in the middle of central campus.

Military and veteran students who are eligible for 100% of the Post 9/11 GI Bill can stay on campus in Decker Hall with a dining plan without going over their BAH.

Military, veterans and military dependents students using the Post 9/11 GI Bill can also utilize this option by selecting any of the other Tier 1 residence halls (Belford, Gordon, Snyder, Sabin, Wiebking, and Wilson) and the dining plans located below. You must be eligible for 100% of the GI Bill. Contact us for more information.
