UNC Students Opposed to New Housing Policies

Thanks to all who signed. From housing: This communication is an update on the recent discussions and decision regarding the changes in the on-campus housing recontracting process. Following approval of the Recontracting Committee, Residence Hall Association, and Housing Advisory Board, the revised process was introduced to students. Among other changes, the plan allocates north campus space for all classes, and provides an additional 5% over past year for first year students and sophomores. This is to ensure a greater balance of students across campus by permitting all classes an opportunity to contract in north campus. The change also helps avoid the sophomore squeeze, which was experienced last year when sophomores had little or no options for north campus housing, and calls for sophomore priority in recontracting. Although most of the revisions received support from students, the recommendation to provide sophomores priority over seniors has met resistance. As a result, Housing and Residential Education reviewed and revisited the policy with members of the Chancellor

The atmospheres of south and north campus are quite different and seem to fit the populations that have traditionally lived in these communities. These distinct atmospheres of campus communities should be preserved.
