Qualifying for Traditional Summer Housing

Traditional Summer Housing is only for students who are taking summer semester classes through UNCW. If you have another reason for staying on campus you may be eligible through Summer Intern Housing. Summer Intern Housing is available through Conferences, Events, & Reservations.  To qualify for summer intern housing, students must either hold an internship opportunity, on/off campus employment, student involvement experience or educational opportunity within the Wilmington area.   For more information and to apply for summer intern housing, please click here.  For questions in regards to summer intern housing, please contact Conferences, Events & Reservations directly at clconferences@uncw.edu or 910.962.4150.

Disability Housing Accommodations

Housing accommodations for students with documented disabilities are determined based on the need for equal opportunity, and not based on a perceived “benefit” to the student. Please note: disability-status does not impact one’s position in the queue (i.e., waitlist); however, should a housing assignment be granted, appropriate accommodations will be addressed. Students currently waiting for on-campus assignments are encouraged to submit Accommodation Request forms while waiting, as this may help expedite necessary adjustments to the room or facility.

Students with disabilities living in UNCW residential buildings who need an accommodation in order to have equal access to the housing environment must make their requests known well in advance of their planned move-in date to ensure needs can be appropriately met (see HRL’s Campus Living Handbook). Request for disability-related accommodations must include the Disability Accommodation Request for University Housing along with appropriate documentation.
