UNC’s student newspaper, The Daily Tar Heel, reported in a short article that as of Fall 2012 housing will be segregated, banishing all freshmen to South Campus and relocating sophomores, juniors, and seniors to North Campus.
UNC is divided into three residential sections: North campus, Mid-campus, and South campus.
North Campus: holds most classrooms, libraries, a dining hall, as well as some social centers. And housing, of course. These housing spots are coveted by many people because the buildings are picturesque and the rooms are a 5 minute walk to class.
Mid-Campus: located directly between north and south campus. That’s about it.
South Campus: home to most of the single rooms, student apartments, and the 'social' dorms. These dorms are also coveted, especially the ones that have private bedrooms, despite the distance to north campus.
Uproar has risen throughout campus because students have their own preferences for on-campus housing based on personal taste. Students that currently occupy apartments in south campus are particularly skeptical.
But it seems that this may be an instance of mistaken reporting. Other representatives are refuting the claims made in the article, saying that more rooms will be available on south campus for freshman, but students will not be forced to room in a particular area unless space is an issue.
And besides, everyone knows that only upperclassmen should have first dibs on the best housing… We deserve it!
