About the Village

The Transfer Connections Village (TCV), located in Wolf Village – Gray is a brand new living-learning community within University Housing that solely focuses on supporting transfer students as they transition to NC State. Transfer students are an incredibly diverse student population, spanning from student caregivers, veterans, non-traditional, traditional and early college students. They enrich conversations inside and outside of the classroom through their unique perspectives and they expand our collective understanding of what the student experience is or should be. With over 4,200 transfer students on campus, we are so proud that University Housing is leveraging its resources to support this unique population of students.

The Transfer Connections Village aims to give our students a crash course of what opportunities NC State has to offer. Transfer students have a shorter period of time on campus in most cases and there is a need to ensure they are able to take advantage of the resources we have on campus.

We empower transfer students to share their stories with each other to normalize their experiences and build relationships across campus!

Our professional and student staff support our residents by…
