Safety & Security
UNC Charlotte takes student safety very seriously. All campus walkways, parking-lots, and building doorways are well-lit. UNC Charlotte police officers patrol campus 24 hours a day and are availble to students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Officers patrol using car, bicycle, and on foot. UNC Charlotte police officers are certified by the State of North Carolina. Each officer went through extensive training and is certified in CPR/First Aid and AED. In addition, many police vehicles carry defibrillators.
More than 300 Emergency Phones are spread across campus and are marked by blue lights. Emergency operators are simply a button away. When a button is pressed campus police are immediately given the location of the emergency call.
In addition, UNC Charlotte sits directly beside the largest hospital in the university area, Carolina Medical Center.
