Student Life

Unforgettable moments, unbreakable bonds and unending traditions begin here. See how we connect students with the wider Wolfpack.

Make Yourself at Home

When you’re part of our Pack, you’ll always have a place to call home.

Our division strives to create a safe environment for students to live, learn and thrive. Across campus, you’ll find housing options ranging from residence halls to village communities to apartment complexes. Added bonus? Our residents get around-the-clock support from dedicated staff and live in close proximity to campus resources, so many see improved grades and retention.

Here, you’ll reap the benefits of living alongside people with different backgrounds and worldviews. And by investing time and talent into your community, you’ll build the soft skills employers are looking for and productive citizens need.

Never a Dull Moment

On this campus, we’re always thinking and doing big things. Stay in the loop and see what’s next.

Find Your People

NC State is filled with bright minds and diverse perspectives. But among thousands of students, it can feel hard to find where you belong. That’s why we help make a big campus feel smaller — and connect you with other people who love what you love.

No matter what you’re interested in, you’ll discover like-minded peers here. Get involved in a student organization. (They run the gamut from academics to service opportunities to club sports and beyond.) Build your leadership skills through Student Government and Greek communities. Or help bring some of the Wolfpack’s most iconic events to life with the University Activities Board.

Your future friends are waiting.
