Welcome to The University of North Carolina at Pembroke! We are excited to have you as a part of our campus family. I encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities and resources available to students on our campus.

The Division of Student Affairs places students first every day. We are committed to providing you with quality programs, activities, and services to enhance and enrich your academic experience. Intellectual, social, cultural, physical and emotional development opportunities are at every corner of your journey at UNC Pembroke. The departments within our division exist to support and facilitate your success.

We know that academics are your first priority. To complement the classroom experience, and to be a well-rounded individual, we encourage you to get involved in some of our many activities. From student government, clubs, fraternities and sororities, intramural sports, to over 100 student organizations, student publications, and community service — there is a place for you to get involved at UNC Pembroke. Our diverse co-curricular activities and programs provide personal and leadership development opportunities for every student.

Show your school spirit by supporting BraveNation in athletic events throughout the year. Take advantage of the Jones Athletic Center which houses basketball courts, an aquatics center, racquetball courts and a well-equipped fitness center. Visit the Chavis University Center to meet friends for billiards, gaming, or bowling. Stroll campus to take in the natural surroundings and get to know our local community. Volunteer, lead with SGA or other student organizations, and make an impact.

Stay connected with campus happenings and things to do via BraveConnect, have immediate access to the university’s safety announcements via our LiveSafe mobile app and always know our departments have an open door to all students.
