Fourteen residence halls are closing as Carolina Housing consolidates students into fewer places on campus, according to an email sent to residents Tuesday.
All the buildings in the Kenan Community and the Upper Quad Community will close.
This consolidation plan was vetted by the Orange County Health Department according to the email. Per OCHD's recommendation, students who are currently sharing a bedroom with a roommate are required to move to a single room or to confirm with UNC that they wish to remain with a roommate.
The residence halls that will close are:
- Old East
- Old West
- Thomas Ruffin Jr.
Students currently living in a residence hall that will be closing are required to submit a form listing their relocation preferences. This form is due Sept. 11. Students will be reassigned accordingly, the email says.
Students moving into a single room will still be charged the rate of a double room.
