No more window stickers! All parking permits are now hangtags to be displayed from the rear view mirror or on the lower portion of the driver’s side windshield in a PaTS-approved clear pouch. (Pouches are available from the PaTS office; cost is $1 for two pouches). You may register more than one vehicle to a permit for an additional $15 fee.
Permit hangtags have a Radio Frequency ID (RFID) chip that will open gated areas appropriate for your permit type.

The area around the highrises is being updated and will be known as “South Village.” The transformation of this area will include:
These changes will bring new amenities and services to the South side of campus. Unfortunately, disruptions and temporary inconvenience will be required during the construction phase.
UNC Charlotte has negotiated new contracts with Coca-Cola Consolidated, Pepsi Beverage Products and Canteen Vending to provide beverages and vended snacks to the campus community. The agreements are unique in that they provide the financial benefit of exclusive beverage rights while maintaining the product choice for customers.
Coke will be the official beverage of Charlotte 49er Athletics
