Guest Information

The following information is for conference, camp, and training session participants only.

  • Visitor Housing

    Thank you for your interest in UNC Summer Visitor Housing.  We have had an increase in demand for summer student housing and therefore, we are not able to offer this service to the public.   If you are a graduate student completing coursework on campus during the summer that does not conform to the standard summer sessions, please contact us at 970-351-2010 and we will be able to assist you in finding temporary housing.

    All students attending New Student Orientation, as well as participants attending most conference, camp, and training sessions, are housed in facilities other than Visitor Housing. Please ask your event contact person for specific arrangements and instructions. UNC Summer Students should refer to the Housing & Residential Education Department for standard summer housing arrangements.

  • Information Desks

    The Information Desks, located on the first floors of the residence halls, are staffed 24 hrs/day by a Desk Receptionist. Desk staff are trained to check in and check out conference participants, answer questions, provide resource information, resolve issues, and provide a variety of other assistance. Desk services include: mail and message handling, equipment checkout, room reservations, and maintenance reporting. You can also purchase stamps and obtain change at the Information Desk.

  • Internet Service

    Wireless internet service is available across campus.  If you are a guest to campus, you can connect to 'UNC-GUEST' and follow the directions. If you are a current UNC Student, you can connect to 'UNC-STUDENT' and follow directions using your Bears Email.  If you need further assistance, you can ask the Front Desk in your residence hall for help.

    Fire Occurrence

    If you see a fire, immediately leave the building. If the building has not gone into full alarm and you pass a fire pull station on your way out of the building, activate the fire alarm.

    Move 100 feet away from the building once you have exited. Under no circumstances should you return to the building until a staff member or police officer has given you permission. Be careful to avoid areas where fire fighting equipment may approach the building.

    If there is a fire, do NOT use the elevators. If a door feels warm to the touch, do NOT open it. If there is heavy smoke, stay as close to the floor as possible and breathe through a piece of clothing.

    Severe Weather

    If there is a severe weather warning, proceed to the designated inclement weather location within your building which is typically an interior hallway on the lowest floor of the building. Stay away from glass windows or doors and protect your face from flying debris.
