With 143,000 sq. feet, 25 classrooms and design studios, meeting and performance spaces, an art gallery, and a four-acre park, all near light rail, it speaks to a new vision in higher education.  A vision that includes urban education, research, engagement, and sustainability.

UNC Charlotte Center City is the only University of North Carolina building conceived and designed specifically to serve the people, organizations, and businesses of the urban center. It provides UNC Charlotte with an enduring presence in the city’s business and cultural district, bringing the University’s considerable intellectual resources to the heart of the Charlotte community. It’s a place where you can work on your MBA, your professional Continuing Education requirements, or your uptown network, all in a space that’s designed to connect you to the most exciting urban center in the state.  UNC Charlotte Center City was featured in Charlotte Agenda.

For the safety and security of faculty, staff students and visitors to Center City, Center City is restricted to current faculty, staff, students and visitors. 
Visitors must have a legitimate business reason for visiting Center City, such as a meeting, event, conference, etc.   
We welcome the public as patrons of Einstein’s Brother’s Bagels. 

Restrooms are reserved for current faculty, staff, students, visitors and patrons of Einsteins.
