4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Plenty of bars, clubs, places to eat, shop, pretty much do whatever you want. All are within a 15 minute drive, mostly being within 5 minutes of campus.

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe, I have never seen any problems on campus.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Right now we are in winter so it is cold. Normally it is above average from home. One of my Engineering classes is a 30 minute, so in the winter that is pretty far. I never know when the shuttle is coming, or which one is going to get me to my classes.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: If you look around near the campus area you'll find decent places for a fair price.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is going to be crime or anything like that anywhere you go but UNCC makes sure to inform their students of any incidents and report promptly when a problem arises. I feel safe on campus and students themselves need to take the precautions that the university suggests and that will ensure a higher safety.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I have visited all of the places I mentioned and many more and most offer student discounts and the service is always good. The cost is reasonable and the atmosphere is great for any age of people.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I can not speak from personal experience because I have not lived on campus but I have stayed with friends in the dorms and they were very nice and if I ever was able to afford on campus living I would definitely enjoy it. The best living is in my opinion in greek village and the houses are well taken care of and I enjoy staying in the them when possible.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is very bearable at UNCC. It is never really too colder too hot and it doesn't rain a lot.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are only a few restaurants on campus and some of them aren't open on weekends. The dining halls are okay but they could be a lot better.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The professors that I have had a UNCC have been great but the classes are easy so far.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The Engineering and CCI computers are pretty sophisticated, with enough software to accomplish any school-related tasks.

The library and general student network computers including those in the lecture podiums have recently been upgraded.

Wifi has also been improved. I only access it using my phone, but since a few months ago Wifi is a lot more accessible without the random dropped connections that used to plague it in the past.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Plenty of clubs uptown and parties everywhere. Great night life!

4 College Sophomore

Weather: There is classic NC weather. Mild all year around and never too severe.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing tends to be cheaper because you don't have to go through the school and get a meal plan and pay for your room and such. Off campus housing is very close, within walking distance to campus. Parking I think comes with whereever you choose to live off campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is a lot around campus. Only about a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Charlotte where there are clubs and movie theaters and places to eat. Also the recreational fields are very nice and easy to get to. Shopping malls are about 10-15 minutes away as well and most college students have jobs either on campus or right outside of campus because it is so close.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: START EARLY. Make sure to be on top of things with financial aid and applying for loans and such. This will make going off to college 1000 times easier and less stressful!

College Freshman

Greek Life: I just transfered here so I'm not too sure about much of Greek Life so I do not want to give a bad grade. I do notice that most of the students I see are apart of Greek Life.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Nightlife is for students who are over the age of 21, but there are some clubs that allow students under the age of 18. Their is one popular bar that all the students go to called Bad dogs. It is where all the students go and you will be able to hang out, drink, and meet new people. For students under the age of 21 you can go to another popular club called label, where you do not have to be 21. You can dance, and party with your friends all night.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The campus life is very good. The student union was built 3 years ago, and has many amenities such as a movie theater, a nice dining area, many fast food restaurants, a pool table area with flat screen tvs, and places in the upstairs to study. The student union is 3 stories high. There are many organizations to join, and the Greek life is great. There is something always going on.

3 College Student

Nightlife: Lots of good clubs once you are over the age of 21.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking is a mess at certain times of the day! As for cost I go two days a week and my parking pass was $150.00. For other prices you can go to UNCC website and it'll provide you with all costs.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid department at UNC Charlotte is pretty good. I was helped everytime I spoke with someone and they are good about working with you when it comes to payment plans. Just make sure you get your FAFSA done as quickly as possible, just in case something goes wrong you will have adequate time to fix it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments around campus are plentiful, fairly close, and nice looking. They aren't the cheapest though, and it's a hassle trying to find a guarantor so that you can get an apartment.
