Summer Start Campus Living
Summer START participants are strongly encouraged to live on-campus. Our students live together in residence halls on main campus central to campus resources. Residence Advisers (RAs), Graduate Assistants (GAs), and START Mentors (SAs) are available 24 hours a day to assist new students as they find their way on NC State's campus.
Our RAs, GAs, and SAs are there to provide a supportive and secure environment that encourages a sense of community conducive to study and relaxation. Evening and weekend programs in the residence halls encourage student involvement on campus while also promoting academic skill building and social involvement.
Same-sex roommates will be assigned. Several dining facilities are located within walking distance of the residence hall. Meal plans are available in varying levels and are listed as part of the program costs.
Participants are also given access to all the amenities they will have in the fall semester. The Student Health Center, Carmichael Gymnasium, and the NCSU Libraries are all operational during the summer.
Please keep in mind that the application for summer housing will be separate from your fall semester housing request. Once you confirm to Summer START, we will contact you with registration procedures for summer housing.
