Welcome to UNC Charlotte and Niner Nation! The staff within the Division of Student Affairs are committed to your personal, educational, mental and physical success as students. Treating students, and all the identities they bring with them, with care and respect is paramount.
The 2021-22 academic year will be an exciting time as students, faculty and staff return to regular, on-campus operations following the COVID-19 pandemic. It is wonderful to see.
There are plenty of opportunities for new and returning students. Join a fraternity or sorority or one of over 400 student organizations. Cheer for the Niner Nation at an Athletics event. Zip around campus on an E-scooter. If you want to talk to someone about depression, anxiety, gender or racial identity issues, or relationship issues, contact CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services). If you do not have enough to eat, visit the Jamil Niner Food Pantry. For families who want to stay involved with campus happenings, the 49er Family Hub delivers the most current information to your inbox.
The more you put into your college experience, the more you will get out of it. And should you stumble or falter, we are here to help you recover. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on the website, contact me at email@example.com or on Twitter at @unccvcsa.

When gold miners first came to our area, they would literally stake their claim with wooden stakes and a small note proclaiming their right to this land for mining. “Stake Your Claim” engages all members of our community and alumni to take pride in that pioneering spirit and tenacity of claiming your territory. For students, staking your claim to UNC Charlotte helps build your affinity for and connection to the University. It is your obligation to explore the campus and the city and find out where you can make your mark and leave your legacy. Get involved!
