University Housing at NC State invites you to stay in one of our guest rooms located at the Avent Ferry Complex. This is a comfortable, convenient and economical alternative for guests affiliated with the University who want to stay close to campus. If you are interested in long-term apartment-style guest accommodations at NC State, please visit our Guest Apartments page.
Reservation requests must be made via the Conference Services website at least 1 week prior to your arrival.
Due to the great demand for guest housing, online reservation requests are required and processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Upon submitting an online reservation request, an e-mail will be sent to you if a room is available for the date(s) you requested. You will then be directed to a website to make payment for your stay. If you fail to make payment within the allotted time frame, we reserve the right to release your room. Upon receipt of payment, your room reservation is confirmed.
If space is not available, you will receive an email indicating so. You can expect a response within two (2) to four (4) business days after we receive your request.
Please read the Guest Room Housing Terms and Conditions (pdf). By completing the reservation form, you are agreeing to those terms.
To be eligible, you must be affiliated with the University as visiting faculty/staff members, prospective students or friends and relatives of University employees.
