The Resident Advisor (RA) position is one of the most important leadership positions a student can hold at UNC Charlotte. As a RA you will be responsible for creating community and a home away from home for our students. Primary responsibilities include getting to know each person in your community so you can be an effective peer helper when needed.

Housing and Residence Life has partnered with Athletics to give one lucky resident a once in a lifetime game day experience this football season!

Each home game, one on-campus resident will be selected as the Resident of the Game. The Resident of the Game winner will receive:

  • VIP seats on the sideline (field level) for the first half of the game
  • Prime seats in the student section for the second half of the game
  • Free 49er gear
  • Free food and drinks (Chick-Fil-A/Bojangles)

Now we wouldn’t want the Resident of the Game to enjoy all these perks alone, so each winner will get to select one friend to tag along with them throughout the entire game day experience.

This week, students planning to live on campus for fall 2018 will submit their residence preferences. As you consider your options, please be aware of a significant campus change that will soon be underway—and how that might affect your housing decision.

Moore Hall and Sanford Hall have been designated to be replaced. After careful evaluation, it has been determined that the cost to renovate these long standing structures is much higher than building a single new, modern one. Both halls will be open for fall—with Moore Hall earmarked for demolition in January 2019.

Students choosing Moore Hall for fall are able to secure a private single room at the double tower rate and will receive priority placement for spring 2019—to offset the inconvenience of moving out at the conclusion of the fall semester. In addition, these students will be given moving assistance to their spring 2019 on-campus locations. (Note: Sanford Hall will be open for the entire 2018-19 academic year and demolished soon after.)

The University is committed to offering a range of contemporary and affordable on-campus housing options to ensure greater access to the opportunity of a UNC Charlotte education, particularly with the continuing development of higher-priced rental units in and around University City. At the same time, the arrival of light rail on campus in March and reduced pricing for student riders makes on-campus living an attractive and viable option for more students. This new hall is part of a wave of coming campus improvements, including the new health and wellness center, new Admissions and visitors center, renovations to the Career Center, and new science building.
