Linen Program

The Linen Program is a convenient and simple solution to all of your college bedding needs. Our goal every year is to ensure parents and students have everything they need for Move-In. We do that by providing easy one-stop shopping with an off-campus company that provides an assortment of residence hall room must-haves, including storage solutions, comforters, pillows, mattress pads and blankets.

For more information on our linen program visit the On Campus Market website.


Bed Dimensions

Most of our mattresses are Twin XL (36" wide by 80" long). When you purchase your sheets, check the packaging to find the length of the fitted sheet. Greek Village has double mattresses (53" wide by 80" long).

Adjustable bed heights (note- not all of our beds can be adjusted/raised):

  • at their lowest setting, the bottom of the springs is 8" off floor. The top of the mattress is 17 1/2".  
  • at their highest setting, the bottom of the springs is 33" off the floor. The top of the mattress is 42 1/2".

Mattress covers are not provided for beds during the regular academic school year. You may consider purchasing your own mattress cover since they can be helpful in preventing stain damage to the mattresses. Staining can result in a damage charge being applied to your student account on check out.

UNC Charlotte Dining boasts 20+ dining locations on campus.

The creation of accounts not only secures our network, but it allows you to manage which of your devices have access to the Internet. Wireless routers are not needed to connect to the wireless Internet.

An Important Note About UNC Charlotte Official Communications:

Almost all of the University and Housing communication with students is electronic.

One of the main avenues for sharing information with residents is the housing website you are currently visiting. Residents should check the website regularly for information and updates related to policies, important dates, major processes (room selection, closing, health and safety inspections, etc.), and events.

Additionally, Housing communicates with residents via their official university email (**@uncc.edu) and their on campus mailboxes. Residents are responsible for checking these frequently.

Niner Network is the cable television service for the campus residents of UNC Charlotte. It offers more than 100 channels of digital TV. Additionally, HBO GO and MAX GO are included in the Niner Network service, giving residents unlimited access to HBO and Cinemax programming anytime, anywhere.*

UNC Charlotte TV

UNC Charlotte TV is the university’s channel featuring campus updates, athletics news and games, student media, world news, independent documentaries, disc golf and a diverse offering of educational programming. The HD channel is available to all on campus residents on Channel 49.1, with programming schedules available on Zap2It and the television page of the Digital Media Communications website. 

Graphic content runs on the channel to provide students current weather conditions, highlights from social media, and headlines from around campus. In the event of a Niner Alert, the message will be relayed through the television channel to provide students with relevant emergency information.


Emergency Alert System

UNC Charlotte’s Niner Network Emergency Alert System is an urgent notification system, by which the University can notify residents of active, major campus/area emergencies. The system is also integrated with the National Emergency Alert in the event it is triggered by government officials or locally by UNC Charlotte Police & Public Safety.

When the University determines there is an active emergency in which the public safety of the campus may be at risk, it will initiate an urgent notification through the Emergency Alert System over the Niner Network TV system.

You will see tests performed at various times to ensure its integrity. In the event of an emergency, important information will display on the television, along with a text to speech conversion of the event.


*NOTE: services could change at any time without notice
