As you pursue a world-class education here, you’ll also discover exceptional opportunities beyond our classroom walls.
NC State has a lively, welcoming campus community where every member of our Pack can thrive and grow. Find countless extracurricular activities, plenty of future friends and — most importantly — a place you’ll forever be able to call home.
Make Yourself at Home
You’re always in the center of the action when you make your home on our campus. Live steps away from exciting activities and community events, support services and amenities. (Plus, we’ve got you covered for everything from coffee-fueled study sessions to late-night snack runs.)
We’ve got 20 residence halls and four apartment complexes. Discover flexible options that put you around the corner from classes, meals and study spots.
Coffee shops, grab-and-go options, dining halls, full-service restaurants — we offer endless convenient ways to enjoy a great meal.
Living and Learning Villages
Live in a community of students who share your passions — from sustainability to wellness and beyond.
Fraternities and Sororities
Be part of NC State’s active Greek life, with more than 50 organizations offering close-knit environments for learning, leading and serving together.
600+ Student Organizations
If you’re into it, there’s a community here for you.
Find Your People
Our campus is filled withbright minds and diverse perspectives, so you’re bound to meet a group of like-minded peers. And the connections you make with your wider Wolfpack will last a lifetime.
Talented artists. Skilled athletes. Keen crafters. Hardcore hobbyists. No matter your interests, there’s a place for you — and we’ll help you find it.
You’ll find your perfect fit among our more than 600 groups — whether you’re into beekeeping, bluegrass, biochemistry or anything (seriously, anything) else.
Get connected with four community centers on campus: the African American Cultural Center, the LGBTQ Pride Center, Multicultural Student Affairs and the Women’s Center.
We host nearly 500 arts opportunities every year, including theater and dance performances, craft classes, art exhibitions and more.
Play a role in shaping your campus — and hone your leadership experience — by joining Student Government or our University Activities Board.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, Wolfpack. We’re thankful for you every day. 🍁 #LightenYourPack
Just one month before moving to Raleigh as a first-year @ncstatedesign student, Ashtyn Thomas was crowned Miss Lumbee 2023. Now, she’s balancing her full architecture course load and serving as an ambassador for the Lumbee community — all while building a new home here at NC State.
“When I put pieces of NC State on my dress, it shows NC State is a place where I’ve found home and will be home for the next few years.”
