Designing Sustainable Communities for Living and Learning

Incoming Students

First Year Undergraduate Students

First year students will find a place to call home right here on campus, including providing first year students with numerous options that are sure to make you feel like you are Home at Carolina.  University Housing's Living and Learning Communities year in and out are ranked by US News and World Report as one of the top residential learning environments in the nation.  To ensure that you have the best experience possible while at Carolina, we encourage students to visit our Learning Communities page to achieve a better understanding of which community best fits their academic and social interests.

Note: New incoming freshmen/first-year students are NOT eligible for 650 Lincoln or the Greek Village.
