Welcome to Burkely Student Communities – A Smarter Student Housing Alternative

Welcome to a more intelligent off-campus student housing experience. Designed, staffed and managed to create optimal living/learning environments, we’re building the only student communities that actually support your efforts to succeed. From student rental discounts for Dean’s List and higher GPAs to study lounges, exam quiet hours and “brain food” in our snack rooms, living with us is the smartest move you can make.

Burkely is now the most trusted student housing for NC A&T UNCG housing alternatives.  With over 10 communities in Greensboro alone you’ll find our student communities within close proximity to UNC-Greensboro or North Carolina A&T. In fact, Burkely Student Communities serve the students of UNCG, North Carolina A&T, Guilford College, Bennett College, Greensboro College, and GTCC.

We’re your getaway – a place where you can unwind, where staff and the student community create and maintain a supportive learning environment.
