Students Traveling with their Families

Family Commuter Housing
Eligibility:
Family commuter housing is designed primarily to assist students who commute to campus with their family from some distance and need lodging related to classes in which they are enrolled. Due to limited space, reservation requests must be made at least 5 business days in advance of your planned stay. Pets are not permitted.
If plans change and a student comes alone without their family, the student needs to notify the housing office before their arrival. We have a very limited number of family commuter apartments, and it is important to keep them available for students coming with their families. We have other commuter options for students traveling without their families.
Current students living in campus housing who have guests coming to visit are welcome to reserve one commuter apartment per event (i.e. wedding, new baby, etc.). Contact the housing office at 919-761-2400 for more details about this option.

Note: Accessible accommodations are available on a limited basis. Applications for accessible commuter housing should be submitted at least 45 days in advance of your planned stay.
