Yes, you do need a current student ID and you may be asked to present your ID for security reasons at any point while in the building.  Student identification cards are used to assist students in obtaining access to services in the building and entrance into the library and computer lab.  The student ID card is FREE.  Students will have one ID card to use throughout their enrollment at UNC Charlotte.  ID cards are valid as long as you are a registered student at UNC Charlotte.

Due to the limited amount of space available at Center City, we do not reserve rooms for students to study.  Students are welcome to utilize the student lounges located on the 5th and 6th floor.

You can buy or rent textbooks through the UNC Charlotte Center City official bookstore!  Visit their online website or stop by Center City M-TH from 10am – 7pm.

First, an event request form must be submitted.  Once received, the events staff will process the event and get back to you within 5 business days to let you know the status of your request.  You may find the event request submission form under the “Events” tab at the home page of the Center City website.

There are a number of Graduate level courses as well as continuing education and extended academic programs offered at Center City.  You can see a list of departments and programs under About Center City.

Center City does not have a public library or computers. Computers are reserved for current students only as well as those who have formally rented and reserved space.

Starting August 2019, our student library has been converted to an academic classroom.
