Summer Conference Housing

Need the perfect overnight accommodations in Charlotte, NC for your conference during the summer months? UNC Charlotte’s Housing and Residence Life has partnered with the office of Conferences, Reservations and Event Services (CRES) to offer safe, convenient, and affordable housing for every type of group - from student/family orientation, to adult conferences and youth camps. Groups are housed throughout our impressive residence halls which include traditional tower styles, suites, and apartments. Housing and Residence Life is proud to have been able to accommodate almost 9,000 conference participants throughout the 2019 summer months!

Please contact if you have any questions or concerns.


Each conference staying in our residence halls will have a full-time, Housing staff member assigned to manage their group. Groups will also interact with OHAs and CHAs, which are student employees specifically trained in providing exceptional customer service to conference participants:

Orientation Housing Assistants (OHAs) work primarily with the student orientation groups. Conference Housing Assistants (CHAs) work primarily with all other conference groups. OHAs and CHAs are responsible for the following:

  • Group check-in and check-outs
  • Assisting with housing concerns and lock-outs
  • Linen distribution and room set-ups
  • 24hr Housing Desk coverage

Two 24hr Housing Desks operate throughout the summer to assist conference participants:

  • Belk Hall 24hr Housing Desk: for groups housed in Belk, Lynch, Wallis, Hawthorn, Miltimore, Oak, Pine, and Elm Halls.
  • Levine Hall 24hr Housing Desk: for groups housed in Laurel, Holshouser, Scott, Sanford, and Levine Halls.

If you need assistance or are locked out, please visit or call the 24hr Housing Desk designated for the building your group is staying in.
