What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
Answered by:

With a campus that spreads across 1,000 acres in a lovely suburban setting, it’s not surprising that 77 percent of UNC Charlotte’s student body lives on campus. Not only does the layout give students convenient access to classes, sports facilities, and art galleries, but also on-campus residents have their choice of housing styles. Whether they are interested in the more traditional residence hall living they find in Holshouser Hall or Moore Hall, the apartment-style housing of Belk and Maple halls, or the suites found in Laurel Hall and Lynch Hall, the campus has a little something to make every student feel welcome and comfortable. And of course, no campus would be complete without its Greeks, who can be found housed in Greek Village. Thirteen large brick chapter houses all connect around a large grassy lawn.
