The James B. Chavis University Center exists to meet the social, cultural, educational, and recreational needs of the University community. It provides a common space where informal interaction enhances the quality of life on campus. While many of our programs are geared towards the needs of our students, we are the central gathering place for all members of the UNCP community–students, faculty, alumni staff,–to meet, relax, and share experiences.
The University Center, commonly known as the UC, has facilities and services for practically all of your daily needs. Included within the UC are lounges, conference rooms, food services, bowling lanes, a Recreation Center, administrative and student organization offices and much more. The UC is more than just facilities and services; it is also people and programs. Whether it is to become involved in the various student organizations, watch TV, or attend a movie, you’ll find it in the University Center. Take a closer look into all our meeting places.
The administrative office of the University Center is located on the second floor in Suite 210. The office is open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday – Friday. The staff are dedicated to making your experience satisfying and enriching. Feel free to drop by – we are here for you.
The facilities of the UC and UC Annex are open to all members of the campus community and guests as long as the utilization is consistent with The University of North Carolina policies, state and federal laws, and does not disrupt other usage of the facility. The building is wheelchair accessible with electronic doors at the main entrances, an elevator, and accessible restrooms on each floor. No bicycles, pets (except service animals), skate boards, or roller blades/skates are allowed in the UC. Gambling is prohibited. Anyone intoxicated or under the influence of drugs will not be allowed on the premises. No concealed weapons are allowed. We are not responsible for any losses or injuries suffered by any person as a result of a facility reservation and/or activities of the reserving organization. Non-university personnel seeking student contact must have the approval of the Senior Director of University Center and Programs.
