Hammocks are allowed on campus (outside), but not indoors in the residence halls.
If you bring a hammock it is prohibited to hang anywhere in the residence halls.
The UNC Housing & Residential Education student handbook contains the most current
information regarding the rules and regulations of the residence halls. This student
handbook document supersedes any information contained on this page. The student handbook
can be found on our Forms & Publications webpage in the Publications box. Possession of prohibited appliances is a violation of the
Student Rights and Responsibilities Community Standards and may result in disciplinary
action. If you have questions about an appliance, hall staff (Resident Assistant or
Hall Director) are available to help determine if an appliance is approved.
The Dean of Students website is also a helpful resource for the Student Code of Conduct (Bear Code), Reporting
a Concern and more.
