Moore/Sanford Hall Fall 2018 Update

Date Published: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

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.
