Housing Process

To apply for housing, please login to your MyEOL and select “Apply For Housing”.

For New Students

New students who submit their completed application by May 1 are guaranteed housing. For your application to be complete, the $150 nonrefundable housing administrative fee must be paid in full to our office or the Bursar’s Office. Debit and credit cards are accepted at the Bursar’s Office in-person or via phone, 919-530-6209. Credit card payments can be made by calling our office at 919-530-7298. Applicants under the age of 18 must also submit the Application and Agreement Form via mail or email. Once we have received your completed application you will receive a confirmation notice. Beginning May 7, assignments will be processed daily and assignment confirmation notices will be sent to your NCCU email account. The assignment confirmation will indicate your hall and room assignment and the contact information of your roommate. Please pay careful attention when indicating your preferences (e.g., residence hall, room type, roommate, preferred bedtime, etc.), because our auto allocation system will select your roommate(s) based on your preferences and the date your completed application was received.

As a First-Year, new student you should select from the following residence halls:

  • Richmond (coed)
  • New Residence II (coed)
  • Eagleson (coed)
  • McLean (coed)
  • Baynes (coed)
  • Annie Day (coed)

Please note: The gender of a hall is subject to change based on the population of applicants.

Transfer students who meet the hour requirements for the sophomore classification or higher, indicated below, may choose residential halls outside of the First-Year Student list.

To begin the application process now, please login to your MyEOL and select “Apply For Housing”.
