Some students may be walking into a new environment of freedom. UNC has a variety of Support Services that your student can access at any time!

UNC also has staff members trained to support the student navigating campus life, accessing health and counseling services, providing academic and housing accommodations, helping with legal protective orders, and more.

Prevention Education and Advocacy Services

This service is available for students to learn how to stay safe if they choose to party. Keep in mind if the student consumes drugs or decides to drink they will be at risk of facing legal and university sanctions. For more information please visit the Dean of Students Office.
