Niner Choice

Exploring Off-Campus Housing?

Housing and Residence Life oversees off-campus housing relations and the Niner Choice program. We strive and are committed to assisting students with making informed choices about all on-campus and off-campus housing options, helping students become knowledgeable and responsible tenants and supporting students as they navigate landlord and roommate concerns.

Niner Choice Program

Although UNC Charlotte does not endorse or recommend any specific off-campus housing or community, the properties listed on the Niner Choice website have undergone a security survey of their property and agreed to meet the identified safetystandards of the Niner Choice Program. The security survey evaluated the overall safety of the property, the individual units, the bedrooms and security requirements that have been set by the Niner Choice Taskforce.

We encourage you to become familiar with the resources provided on the Niner Choice website to access helpful tools and resources for living off campus including but not limited to:

  • Niner Choice Program details and participation standards
  • A list of all Niner Choice participating off campus properties
  • Moving checklist
  • Roommate checklist
  • Sample lease
  • Information on tenant’s rights
  • Safety tips
  • Campus and community resources

Additional Information

We have, and will always be, honored to serve you in your on-campus home. UNC Charlotte encourages students to live on campus to enhance their co-curricular experience, however when you are ready for a different experience off campus we are here to support you and offer guidance.
