A beautiful new seven-story brick building with student apartments on the top level gives Queens' upper division students a long-awaited option for living on campus.
The "super suite" housing style accommodates both single and double occupancy rooms with shared living room space in each apartment. Juniors and seniors were able to choose their living space in South Hall, which were outfitted with new furniture, refrigerators and upgraded Wi-Fi capabilities. Seniors have their own assigned parking space in the parking deck below the apartments, and many rooms boast gorgeous views of the campus and surrounding Myers Park neighborhood, framed by Charlotte's famous tree canopy.
South Hall joins seven other residential living options, all co-ed.
In what's become an ongoing Queens tradition, Queens' faculty and staff volunteered their time and energy to help the students re-locate to their new apartments. Move-in day on Friday, September 28 proved to be a party in motion, with music, humor and smiles all around.
"We're thrilled to offer this state-of-the-art residence hall to our current students," said Dean of Students John Downey. "With this new building we now offer our students every option for housing that exists on any campus, including corridor style, suite style, apartment style, and now a super-suite style with living rooms. Helpings students move on Friday was one of the best days I've had at Queens, although I do wish there were fewer 50-inch TVs to carry!"
