Due to ongoing concerns and preventative measures regarding COVID-19, UNC is strongly encouraging students to relocate to an off-campus home; however, we understand some students may not be able to do this. Housing will remain open for students who do not have another option. For more information about remaining on campus, moving out of your residence hall, and related updates, visit the COVID-19 Housing page.
