SPRING 2022 Updates

The latest information on vaccination and testing protocols is available here. 

Please remember that guidance from national, state and local health officials continues to evolve, which may affect the University’s decisions and instructions. As we have new information, we will share it with you. 

Face Coverings

  • Face masks are optional on UNC Charlotte’s campus. This includes classrooms and other academic spaces. This follows the UNC System issued guidance that makes face masks optional in all indoor settings on all campuses of the System, sent on Feb. 25. 
  • ​If you are unvaccinated or at high risk for complications, you are still strongly encouraged to wear a mask. 
  • Please note: Federal and state regulations still require a face mask on NinerTransit and in the Student Health Center.
  • Even with this guidance, you are encouraged to wear a mask to further reduce the risk of infection to yourself and others, especially when you are in close proximity to others in confined spaces. For example, this may include in hallways, in elevators, when waiting in line in buildings or in residential community spaces.
  • Face masks continue to be available to members of the University community in the Popp Martin Student Union, Atkins Library, Niner Central and the Career Center for individuals who wish to wear one. 

Events and Gathering Restrictions

  • Indoor gatherings and events will continue to be limited to 50% of the space’s room capacity, but masks will not be required. Attendees are always welcome to wear masks if they prefer to do so. 
  • Outdoor gatherings have no restrictions.


Study abroad options are available to students, assuming travel is permitted to the desired country and it is deemed safe. Interested students should contact the Office of Education Abroad.


Athletic events will continue to be held under the guidance provided by Conference USA. We can’t wait to see you in the stands cheering on the Charlotte 49ers! Find out more on the Charlotte Athletics website
