Global Village Community

The Global Village Community is focused on providing second year and beyond students an international living environment while experiencing college through a global lens. Students will have the opportunity to live in apartment style housing with domestic students interested in studying abroad, as well as other international students. 

Global Village RLC

Explore Culture

Students will be immersed in both educational and social environments with cultures from all over the world! As a member of this community you will be given the opportunity to explore the ideas and lifestyles associated with the international population here at UNC. This includes everything from day to day interactions with students from other countries to more tangible events such as:

  • Cultural nights
  • Music from all over the world
  • Targeted programs designed to increase your knowledge of other cultures
  • Access to Center for International Education events
  • On-campus programs such as sporting events, BINGO, movies and bowling.

Make Connections

Global Village residents create meaningful connections that last a lifetime.

This community works closely with the Center for International Education to plan events and connect new International students with International Ambassadors (current UNC students who take them around town, help with adjustment to campus, and make friends). The Global Village community is designed for both American and International Students who wish to learn more about world cultures and make life-long international friends.  On the Arlington Park Apartments contract, select “Yes” in the Global Village section.
