Office of Real Estate and Development

We steward land assets in support of NC State University's teaching, research and partnership mission.

Dedicated to NC State

NC State’s Office of Real Estate and Development is responsible for the stewardship, management and development of the university’s real estate portfolio, including Centennial Campus.

Skillful governance of university land, building space and other property assets is essential to maintaining NC State’s role as a leader in education and an economic engine for the state.

We’re Here To Help

NC State’s property portfolio is large and varied — and so are the possibilities. Our office aids with leasing, access, management, development, acquisition, information and more. Let us help you clarify what you need and who to contact.

Skilled Service, on Campus and Off

As a land-grant institution, NC State engages in a variety of learning, research, extension and business pursuits — each with unique space needs.

  • University department support for leasing off-campus lab, office and residential space
  • Property information and land-use requests
