WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) -

Living off campus is something many college kids look forward to…but planning ahead is crucial when you go to UNCW.

That's because once a year, college kids can come out and place an application in to live on Wrightsville Beach.

Kids began camping out on Monday night, and put the bids in by 9am on Tuesday morning.

There are only 45 houses available, and they will not find out if their bid was accepted until April.

"I want a beach house on the ocean front," Student Kyle Anthony said. "It would be really nice to live with my friends in such a fun area."

This is the 3rd year Bryant Real Estate has let students camp out in front of their building.

The Real Estate company gave students pizza vouchers and free coffee.
