A gateway to UNC's Campus
Campus Commons, or the Commons, is an entry point and wheel hub to UNC's campus, serving as a central point for visitors, current students and alumni alike. In addition to welcoming guests and showcasing the arts, the Commons provides open and reserve study and hangout spaces, rehearsal rooms and more to complement the neighboring University Center.
Finished in 2019, with the support of many generous donors and alumni, the Commons signifies how UNC is facing the future: with student support, a welcoming presence, cool art, beautiful music and really good pie.
Warm yourself by the fire pit and watch the sun set over the Rockies from one of the Adirondack chairs on the patio space between the Commons and the University Center.
The Campus Commons is 114,000 square feet in the process of being LEED-certified. The building's features were designed with the environment and the future in mind.
Old and New
The social stairs, a focal point of the Commons when you enter from the south entrance by the main parking lots, are made of wood that was reclaimed from railway cars.
