Most coordinators do not allow this, but those decisions are made jointly by the program coordinators of the respective LCs.
Students must complete a learning community application in addition to a Housing application, which requires a $200 deposit. Students under 18 must have their parent(s)/guardian(s) complete an under-18 form in order to complete their housing application. Students will not be assigned to a residential LC without a completed Housing application.
Students are not able to select C.F. Lynch or Hawthorn on the application, as these buildings are only assignable once a student has been accepted into a learning community. Students should complete the application as if they were not going to participate in a LC.
Students can determine their living options for each learning community in a variety of locations. On the List of Learning Communities at UNC Charlotte, each program’s living requirement status is indicated. Also, the LC application itself will only provide choices for living options relevant to the selected programs.
All residence halls are smoke-free environments.
Engineering LC participants do not have a single-occupancy bedroom option. In C.F. Lynch, each LC is given a limited number of single and double occupancy bedrooms. Space requests are filled based on when the LC coordinator submits your name as an accepted program participant. Once your name has been submitted, preference is then given according to the date of completion of the Housing application ($200 deposit has been paid). Other factors impacting our ability to fulfill room-type preference include roommate(s) requested and the number of single rooms allocated to a particular program. Housing cannot guarantee
If a student has a medical need for a single room, this should be documented and handled through Disability Services to ensure the accommodation is made.
Hawthorn Hall has only four person suites with double-occupancy bedrooms. C.F. Lynch Hall has four person suites, many with single-occupancy bedrooms, but some with double-occupancy bedrooms.
Tours are available during Explore weekends. Unfortunately, tours at any other time cannot be accommodated. During SOAR, students are housed in C.F. Lynch Hall, although no tour of Hawthorn is available.
Assignments are made on a rolling basis throughout the summer, starting in May. Students are assigned based on date of completed Housing application. Students applying for LCs may receive a non-LC building assignment prior to being accepted into the LC. Once a program coordinator communicates a student’s acceptance into their LC, the student’s assignment will be changed as soon as possible (usually 1-2 weeks).
