The Basin Neighborhood
Providing a home away-from-home to the majority of UNC first year students, Harrison Hall is one of the largest UNC communities, with 5 floors and 540+ fellow students. Bears can experience supportive connections within 3 Residential Connections at Harrison Hall: Pre-Nursing RC, Outdoor Pursuits RC, and the Queer Living Community - First Year RC. The proximity of the Gear Shop provides convenient access to equipment check out for a Bear’s next Outdoor Pursuits adventure.
Harrison Hall was built on West Campus, in 1966. Bears enjoy the cozy convenience of updated community-style-deluxe rooms with semi-private “Jack & Jill” bathrooms and easy access to The Campus Recreation Center, Michener Library, Holmes Dining Hall and West Campus Academic Buildings. Students residing in Harrison Hall are not required to move to temporary housing during academic breaks; they can apply to stay in their units during Winter and Spring breaks.

Queer Living Community - First Year
The supportive space created by the Queer Living Community is a great fit if you enjoy engaging in open dialogue about identity. Students who identify across the gender, sexual, and romantic identity spectrums are welcome to call this community home.
The OP community is designed to bring together students who have a passion for the outdoors and give them an opportunity to explore new adventures together! In partnership with UNC’s Outdoor Pursuits in Campus Recreation, this community has the privilege of being linked to UNC’s gear shop and lots of opportunities to get off campus and into nature.
If you’re a Pre-Nursing major, this community is for you! Live with other Pre-Nursing majors, study together, and find connection through your shared classes and experience at UNC.
