Bienvenido!

Thank you for your interest in the César Chávez Cultural Center. Whether you are already on campus or looking into enrolling at UNC we would like to extend an invitation to you to come and visit the “House on the Hill.” We are located on the corner of 14th Avenue and 20th Street by the big sign that reads “Patton House.”

Our staff is here to serve your needs and to help you navigate through your college experience. We can help connect you with the many resources UNC offers. It is also a great place to meet new friends and find out about Latino organizations you may want to join.

If you are looking for a place to fit in, we are the right place for you. The Center is a beautiful house with comfy couches, a large screen TV, a fully equipped kitchen and a computer lab. You can also reserve the Center to hold study sessions or club/organization meetings.

Don’t hesitate, just come on by! We’d love to meet you! We promise to make you feel welcome. Pretty soon you will belong to the great familia @ the CCCC!

Our Mission

“The César Chávez Cultural Center supports educational attainment and persistence of Latinx students and serves as a resource to the larger campus community regarding the Latinx culture.”
