Student Life


UNC Charlotte is the third largest university in North Carolina. Our large university with a small college feel, warm and sunny location, and outstanding academics are just a few reasons why students choose to shape what’s next at UNC Charlotte.


With a diverse mix of people, cultures, classes, and ideas, our campus is a place of inclusion. We encourage individuality within an environment that fosters a true sense of belonging.

Here you will make real and meaningful connections and find strength in the Niner Nation community.


As Charlotte continues to grow as a a community and University, the student body has created their own traditions and developed an united identity as Niner Nation.

We invite our students to explore our current traditions and welcome ideas for new ones. Our hope is as we continue to expand, more traditions emerge on campus, leaving a greater legacy for Niner Nation.
