Koury Residence Hall

Koury Residence Hall was completed in 2002, one of four new dorms finished around the same time (Craige North, Hardin, and Horton are the others). The new dorms, in high demand with students, featured modern technology, single-sex suites, and coed floors. Originally named Ehringhaus South for its proximity to the nearby larger dorm, the building was renamed in 2008 for alumnus Maurice J. Koury. A 1949 graduate of UNC, Koury was president of Carolina Hosiery Mills. He was active in alumni groups and a successful fund-raiser, helping lead the campaign to raise money for the Dean Smith Center in the 1980s and the adjacent natatorium, which is also named for Koury.
