New Students

Welcome, Future Residents!

We are glad you decided to apply to live on campus! The following information outlines the process related to completing your online application. Before you begin the online application process, take a few minutes to review the information below so you are aware how to apply, how to use the system with your NinerNET credentials and how to check your application status or assignment.

Living on campus at UNC Charlotte is very popular and demand is high. This means we are likely to have more students interested in living on campus than we have space to accommodate them. To support the success of incoming students, we will prioritize applications from entering first time in college (FTIC) students, new transfer and new international students, and then continuing students as available space allows. 

If you know you want to live on campus, please apply early! A $100 non-refundable housing application processing fee is required and does not guarantee a housing assignment.
