I was an out of the state student and I was confused about where to stay and finding a apartment. I was lucky enough to find uncchousing.com. I did not wanted my self to be struck in the dorms with expensive rents and small rooms.
The apartments were right across the street from the UNCC Campus. Matter of Fact my apartment was just 5 minutes from UNCC Main Campus. No expensive parking, expensive food plans, no nothing.
