Summer Start Housing & Dining

Housing During Summer Start

Living on campus is an essential part of students’ transitions to college, and NC State requires all first-year students to live in University Housing.  As such, all first-year students participating in Summer Start are required to live on-campus during the summer as well. Exemptions from the live on requirement may be available.  Learn more about NC State’s first year requirement and possible exemptions here.

On-campus housing for Summer Start will be in the heart of campus in Tucker Hall.  Mark your calendar for Summer Start housing Move-In on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 from 9:00am to 2:00pm! More information about Move-In will come in late-May.

Note: The application for summer housing will be separate from your fall semester housing request. The housing application for Summer Start is now available via MyPack Portal.

Same-sex roommates will be assigned. Several dining facilities are located within walking distance of Tucker Hall. Meal plans are available in varying levels and are listed as part of the program costs.

Participants are also provided access to all the amenities they will have in the fall semester. The Student Health Center, Carmichael Gymnasium, and the NCSU Libraries are all operational during the summer.

Interim Housing Option Post-Summer Start

Students may have the option to move into their fall housing assignment early following the end of the Summer Start program. To move solely their belongings into their fall placement, a fee of $25 will be billed to the student account. To move in their belongings, receive a key, and stay in the room for the gap period between the summer and fall semester, a fee of $210 will be billed to the student account. University Housing will share more information about this option during Summer Start. It is possible your fall housing residence hall may be under construction during the summer, in which case interim housing options may not be available.

Meal Plans for Summer

Students living on campus during Summer Start will be required to purchase a meal plan through University Dining, but students living off campus are also invited to purchase a meal plan as well.

During summer sessions, University Dining offers three options at various price points for meal plans:

  • 12 Meals Per Week + 50 Dining Dollars ($515)
  • 40 Meals During Summer Start + 50 Dining Dollars ($400)
  • Commuter/Apartment: 250 Dining Dollars Only ($250)
  • Note: The Commuter/Apartment plan is only available for students living in Wolf Village, Wolf Ridge apartments, or off-campus.

Students are able to purchase the meal plan option that best meets their needs during Summer Start. For more information on the meal plan options and tips in selecting the right meal plan, please visit the University Dining website.
