Carolina’s Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) give students a unique, inclusive residential learning experience that connects classroom learning with residence life. Students enjoy all the usual advantages of living on campus in a residence hall, with the added benefit of living among a group of students eager to make connections and explore their passions and interests. The activities and involvement expected of Living-Learning Community residents vary from group to group. In general, participants can expect to make a commitment of 2-4 hours each week dedicated to meeting on a regular basis with the group, planning and participating in seminars and discussion groups, leading social events, and interacting with faculty.

Academic Year Parking
Student permits for the academic year are available through a lottery system. On-line registration for the lottery begins in July prior to the start of the fall semester. The number of permits available to students is broken down by school program and/or class. Available permits are assigned randomly after the close of the on-line registration by school/class. Students who do not receive a permit are put on the waiting list for the permit they requested.
Students can purchase parking permits during the school year in student parking zones that do not have a waitlist. Students living off-campus (commuters) can purchase S11 permits (Manning Drive) located on South Campus adjacent to the Smith Center. The S11 lot is served by the fare free CHT U Route and RU Route that loop campus. Students living in UNC Housing (residents) can purchase an RR permit (Estes Drive). The RR lot is a gated lot located 1.5 miles from campus. The RR lot is served by the fare free CHT NU Route that travels from main campus to the gated lot.
