Student Services at Piedmont AHEC provides housing for students in the health profession during their clinical community experiences. It is available across an 8-county region in North Carolina. In 2023, Piedmont AHEC assisted 146 students in securing housing for 4,784 nights. Piedmont AHEC coordinates housing and manages the details.

Follow these steps to obtain Piedmont AHEC housing:

Step 1

Complete and submit the Student Housing Agreement Form. This form can be submitted online.

Step 2

You must complete an online housing application. All requests for AHEC student housing must be made through the statewide MyAHEC website at The site will instruct you to create an online account, and you can select the AHEC region(s) where you need housing. This process requires that you apply for your housing; a school/course coordinator will not be able to apply for housing on your behalf. Housing requests should not exceed 90 days.

"I appreciated how seamless the process for requesting and using housing was. When I was busy in the hospital with clinical learning and patient care activities, having safe, accessible, and convenient housing at the end of the day was something that helped make my student experience even better."

Housing is on a first-come, first-served basis.

We will shift to single-bedroom occupancy effective June 1, 2024, as housing is limited. Priority is given to in-state affiliated schools (list of affiliated schools below). Space is limited for non-affiliated students, with a $50/night fee. Approval is based on the request date and availability. Limited housing is available for North Carolina health science students in the Piedmont AHEC region. The rotation site must be more than 50 miles from the school campus to be eligible for housing.

Please note: Rotation sites located 50 miles or less from the school campus are considered within a commutable distance—for example, students traveling from Winston-Salem to Greensboro or from Winston-Salem to Asheboro.
