North Carolina Central University Off Campus Apartments
Ready for an Apartment near NCCU?
The history of North Carolina Central University as a university for African-Americans makes this school a special place, for its students and also for the nation...says a man with a booming voice and a fluttering American flag in the background.
A Special Place to Learn
When a school’s mission is to “prepare students academically and professionally to become leaders prepared to advance the consciousness of social responsibility in a diverse global society,” you know it has got to be a special place. Though the school is constantly contributing to the public good, its students come first since they are “the future.” As cliché as that may sound, it’s the truth, which is why NCCU encourages its students to be well rounded. With eight different schools to choose from and dozens of degree programs, students can get a feel for all kinds of fields of study, and choose what fits them best.
A Special Place to Live
On campus, there is generally a happy vibe that makes students ready to study, research, make social change, get involved with student clubs and organizations, and, of course, make friends. Off campus, the happy vibe continues, making Durham, North Carolina a special place to live. The city has tons of libraries, museums, galleries, shopping, local restaurants, and nature hikes and camping in the surrounding areas. Downtown Durham is also a hotbed of activity and the capitol of Raleigh is right nearby. All of these things prompt students to make the decision to live off-campus, and the fact that there are tons of affordable apartment options within walking/biking distance of the school doesn’t hurt either!

A Special Place to Have Fun
After a hard day’s work of do-goodery at NCCU, students like to let loose and frequent the bars, clubs, and lounges around Durham or Raleigh. Places like the The Federal or the Whiskey at 347 W Main St are popular hang outs. To catch a game, try Tobacco Road Sports Café at 280 S Mangum St, or see some live music at The Pinhook at 117 Main St. Whatever you end up doing on the weekends, you will not be bored!
