Change in Reservation:
Because this room is occasionally in demand for guests here for longer stays, we reserve the right to upgrade you to alternative Center accommodations suitable to the size of your party for no additional cost. If you have any additional specifications for the room, we will try our best to accommodate those in the alternate housing.
Pests: Pests are an unfortunate fact of life in NC, especially in historic houses and well-treed properties. However, many guests object to the use of conventional pesticides. We have engaged Sage Pest Control, an environmentally friendly company that uses chrysanthemum-based products to provide guaranteed treatments. If you see any ants, roaches, mosquitoes or spiders, please report the problem to the company and they will send someone over. The contact information will be provided in the House Manual.
No smoking or pets, please. In consideration of the other residents, please keep noise down, especially after 10pm.

My name is Sian, and I’m currently a graduate student in the Masters of Arts in Teaching program at UNC Chapel Hill. I was also a Tarheel in my undergrad, where I studied Psychology and Chinese. During my time at Carolina, I was a Resident Advisor for Resident Halls on campus, member of an acapella group, and involved with service work. I’ve been living in Chapel Hill for the past four years as a college student, so I would like to think that I know the city quite well! I’m a huge advocate for exploring and trying new things, and therefore have a lot of suggestions for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area!
