The Carolina Veterans Resource Center (CVRC) provides a welcoming environment to study, hang out and meet other military-connected students. Not only do we welcome veterans, but also active-duty military, National Guard members, reservists, dependents, spouses, and ROTC cadets.
The Carolina Veterans Resource Center is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. for student use. CVRC staff offer virtual and in-person appointments. To request an appointment, send an email to [email protected] or call 919-962-9640. For the most current information, please follow us on Twitter at @UNC_CVRC.
The Center provides a multitude of resources and amenities, which include a spacious lounge area, kitchen, and study rooms. We also offer academic and career workshops, front desk peer advising, and many social and wellness events throughout the year.
We have a signature on-boarding program called Boot Print to Heel Print that assists transitioning veterans and active duty students from admissions through the end of their first year. We support undergraduate, graduate and professional school student in this program.
We also offer Green Zone training. This training is for faculty, staff and students who are interested in learning more about the student veteran experience and how they can best support and assist this unique community.
