Young professionals meet in a sunny room.

Live and Work

Centennial Campus is a place where innovation lives and works, where you can find a home and launch your career.

Live Here

If you’re looking for a vibrant, convenient and unique community to call home, you’ll find it on Centennial Campus. Our residential communities offer a variety of housing options for everyone, with easy access to campus resources, events and amenities.

Living here means you can get to everywhere else you want to be, too — Downtown Raleigh, I-40 and I-440, Raleigh-Durham International Airport, Research Triangle Park and other vibrant Triangle-area destinations. It also means you can get away from everything: Lake Raleigh, the Capital Area Greenway trails, Dorothea Dix Park and other green spaces are right at your doorstep.

My family loved the community events held on Centennial Campus this year, especially Live @ Lake Raleigh and the movie series.
