Beginning next fall, the eight black fraternities and sororities that comprise the National Pan-Hellenic Council at UNC will have housing in Ram Village Apartments. Previously, NPHC chapters didn't have official on-campus housing.
“It's a step forward to have a physical space for that,” NPHC President Alton Peques said. “This will be a great space for our organizations to convene, do the work that is meaningful to their organization, collaborate socially, professionally.”
Director of Housing and Residential Education Allan Blattner said the process to secure housing specifically for the NPHC began around three years ago. Blattner said NPHC stood united in their pursuit of official on-campus housing available to all of the members of this Greek community.
“One of the things that's important to them was that if it's offered to one, it's offered to all of them,” Blattner said.
Blattner said Carolina Housing is open to conversations with any student organization that believes living together would be beneficial.
