Housing and Campus Life

 Residence halls should be about more than just a place to sleep. Living on campus is not about the building but, about the relationships you will build while living with a community and getting to know people from different backgrounds.

  • Approximately 200 students live on-campus
  • 3 residence halls
  • 1 suite-style complex
  • 1 ranch-style with both private and community restrooms
  • Options include double rooms and co-ed-by-wing floors
  • Each residence is supervised by a Residence Life Manager
  • Resident Advisors live on each floor
  • The Office of Residence Life coordinates all campus housing and is dedicated to maintaining an environment conducive to educational and personal development.

On-campus residency requirement

The NCTA residency requirement serves important educational and developmental purposes. Students prosper in stable living environments that are close to academic resources and organized student activities that promote social interaction and exposure to new and diverse life experiences, and that afford supervision, counseling, and other assistance as needed.

The on-campus residency provides unparalleled opportunities for multi-dimensional student development and is part-and-parcel of NCTA's broad educational program. The Housing Contract Exemption Policy is strictly enforced. However, some students may have living requirements that NCTA cannot accommodate on campus.

On-Campus Residency Policy Applies to:

All unmarried students who are enrolled for 12 or more credit hours, and who are under the age of 21, have fewer than 30 credit hours of post-secondary education or have a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0 as of the first day of the fall semester of the current academic year, are required to reside in on-campus housing.

The only exceptions to on-campus residency:

  • The student lives with his/her parents or guardian within a 45-mile driving distance from NCTA;
  • The student will live with a close relative (grandparent, brother, sister, aunt or uncle) provided the relative is over 21 years of age, and the residence is within 45 miles of the NCTA campus;
  • The student is married, a single parent or has a documented medical/mental health condition which makes it impractical to meet the housing requirement.
  • An exception request will only be considered after the residency exemption request form has been returned with supportive documentation to the Residence Life Manager.
