UNC Charlotte's resources for the 49ners community

Niner Needs

Niner Needs at ninerneeds.charlotte.edu is an online resource with information on where to go for help if you are a UNC Charlotte student who is experiencing food or housing insecurity, needs someone to talk to, is seeking financial assistance, or more. Our hope is that basic needs are not overlooked at the expense of a degree.

An informational sheet on Niner Needs is available here (last updated on August 25, 2022).
