Incoming first-year Kathryn Hintze said she turned in her housing application two months before the due date and is still waiting to receive her housing assignment.
“We just kinda get this email every week. After the first email I got, I emailed them, and then 2 weeks later they emailed me back and they’re like, there’s not a definitive timeline, and just to be patient,” Hintze said.
Carolina Housing Assignments Coordinator Steven Wiley said this happens every year, because Carolina Housing does not receive athletic rosters or other special programs rosters in time to coordinate rooms accordingly.
“So when we do that we have several hundred students, and this year it was 256, that had applied by the deadline that did not receive their assignments with the initial batch,” Wiley said. “And we always have between that and 350 (students) every year because what happens is some of our special programs base, whether it’s athletics or RLPs (Residential Learning Programs) and things like that, those rosters are not set when we set out that first batch of assignments.”
