Ready for Your First Year?

Don't Forget to Download the Niner Destination App

Welcome to Niner Nation!

We want to help you succeed in your first year at UNC Charlotte. We know that you will find this an exciting campus full of new experience and opportunities. The resources you will find in this website are designed to help you succeed in your academic career, your personal and professional development and your wallet.

We also know you likely have lots of questions about what fall semester is going to look like on campus. When you arrive in September, you can expect to see a variety of new protocols in place to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Here are a few things you can expect:

  • Students, faculty and staff will be expected to wear a mask any time a distance of six feet cannot be maintained from others. You will receive a return-to-campus kit that will include face masks, hand sanitizer and other items. 
  • Ground decals will be placed throughout campus to help you know where to stand when waiting for services. 
  • There will be hand sanitizing stations set up throughout campus. 
  • Dining facilities will be reconfigured to promote social distancing and staff will now serve you. There will be plenty of to-go options, too. 
  • We are increasing campus cleaning efforts with a special emphasis on high-touch surfaces. 
  • Niner Transit, our bus system, will implement changes to ensure social distancing.

This fall may not look like what you originally envisioned for your first semester as a Niner, but it will still be a great experience, even if it is a little unconventional.  

We are committed to your success inside and outside of the classroom. We believe that all students have a place at UNC Charlotte and we are here to help you develop a sense of belonging with your new home.

Welcome, and Go Niners!
