Returning to Campus

Plans to Return to Campus

UNC Charlotte is in a position to plan for a return to full operations in fall 2021. To do that, we need to begin returning to campus.  

Expected return dates

  • Student-facing and other customer-facing offices and services: Offices that typically see foot traffic from students, employees or other customers should now be staffed and open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday - Friday or their otherwise stated standard business hours. Supervisors should work to schedule a rotation of staff onto campus, but offices providing services to students should always have in-person staffing during their regular hours. 
  • All other staff: All other staff should plan to return to pre-pandemic hours and regular operations on campus no later than Tuesday, July 6, in anticipation of a return to full on-campus operations on Monday, Aug. 16. 
  • Faculty: For the fall semester, faculty should be back on campus by the first day of the new academic year, Monday, Aug. 16. 

Preparing for return

  • Department and unit representatives have been contacted by the Office of Emergency Management to identify their key tasks and resources needed to return to campus for full operations and their estimated date of return. If you have questions about your particular unit or department, please contact your supervisor.


The University community will be updated on changes, enhancements and developments in this plan thorough updates on this website, the Niner Nation Cares website and email communication as needed.
