Apartments near UNC-Chapel Hill have many benefits over on campus housing. Residents in off campus housing can live a more independent lifestyle, as on campus housing typically requires students to frequently check in with their resident assistants (RAs) and abide by other strict rules. Not only do residents of off campus housing not have to deal with these restrictions, but they can enjoy a long list of on-site amenities, as well as a premier location close to shopping, dining, and entertainment hotspots.

Whether you’re in the mood for a mellow evening with friends or an all-day study session, we’ve got the amenities for you. Amenities available at Shortbread Lofts include a rooftop terrace; 24-hour fitness center; 24/7 complimentary printing; clubhouse; recycling center; a rooftop terrace; a complimentary coffee bar; private and group study spaces; several Mac computers; stand-up and laydown tanning; community-wide Wi-Fi; and assigned parking.

Yes! On-site staff, management, maintenance, and security teams are readily available to help residents with any questions or concerns they may have.

Our apartments are fully furnished with bedroom furniture, living room furniture, a full-size washer and dryer, and a full kitchen that includes stainless steel appliances, a ceramic stovetop, microwave, and dishwasher. Other apartment features include: ceiling fans & AC throughout the apartment; 8-foot picture windows; oversized closets; concrete floors; high ceilings (in select units); European cabinetry; granite countertops; and chic loft finishes.

We offer a roommate matching service to all our residents who are in need of one or more roommates. Residents can fill out a quick questionnaire and we’ll work diligently to match residents together based on their lifestyle preferences, interests, and daily schedules.

We offer individual housing contracts for our residents’ convenience. Individual housing contracts ensure residents are only ever responsible for their own portion of the monthly installment. So even if a roommate moves out or misses a payment, none of the other residents are impacted.

Housing contracts are 12-month agreements. Unlike on campus housing, our community does not close for holidays or the summer months, so residents can stay in their apartment year-round.

We’ve made paying monthly installment payments easy and convenient. Residents can make payments through our online resident portal or in-person with personal checks, money orders, or cashier checks.

Each month’s installment payment will depend on the selected floor plan. We offer a variety of two-bedroom apartments, three-bedroom apartments, and four-bedroom apartments in a multitude of styles so residents can choose the floor plan that supports their lifestyle.
