Thinking of Attending UNCC, University of North Carolina at Charlotte?
Hi! I'm Jay Jones, Head Moderator.
When you read through this blog, you will not find
wonderful things said about the University of North Carolina at
Charlotte. There's no gushing testimony of the absolute awesomeness of its faculty, or the success of
its graduates. These are all very subjective and things which the
university itself has the staff and resources to tell you. Just Google
"Welcome to UNCC" and you'll see four entire pages of Google welcomes from various departments and clubs that will promise you all sorts of unverifiable delights.
What you will read in this blog, however, is that UNCC is located in a bad neighborhood.
The area adjacent to the UNCC campus averages OVER fifty crimes per
week, all within walking distance. Since March of 2012, there were five
reported rapes/sexual assaults on campus, four of which occurred in women's dormitories. The
other occurred in a women's bathroom in a very large and well-traveled
class building. The perpetrator escaped.
In February 2014 (after the latest rape in a dormitory), UNCC stopped publishing the Clery Reports online. To
see the daily reports one must call the Campus Police at 704-687-8300. (See the website here).
If one wants to remain informed of campus crime, one must either wait
until the UNCC campus police department sends out a text warning (sent
only under extreme cases), go to campus police and ASK for a printout of reports, or wait until the end of
the year when the yearly report is published. 20014's yearly report was published October 2015. What does that tell you?). The
fact that UNCC stopped publishing its daily security reports online points to the possibility that UNCC is greatly concerned about its
on-campus safety reputation.This doesn't help students to evaluate the safety of the campus before enrolling, does it?
Another thing: the parking situation is miserable.
One student compared buying a UNCC campus parking permit to buying a
lottery ticket. You may spend more time looking for a parking place than
you will spend in class.
Online discussions about UNCC occur frequently. Some can be found on College Confidential , Students Review, and City Data. The weirdest discussion we've seen about UNCC on City Data can be found here. Form your own conclusions.
This website has been accused of bias because we
publish news reports that reflect poorly upon UNCC, the
things one will not find published by UNCC on any of its own websites.
UNCC has its own PR apparatus and the wherewithal to keep you informed
of student programs and organizations and the supposedly many wonderful
things to do on-campus. This website is a news aggregator, and little
more. We report what the administration won't tell its own students.
Foreign students: we highly recommend that you spend the time reading through this blog before you enroll in UNCC.

And a Little About Crime in and Around UNCC: At one time, the numbers of crime in University City decreased in the summer. This summer (2014), the number of crimes committed within walking distance of the campus are holding steady at about fifty crimes per week. It is safe to assume that UNCC University City now has a permanent resident criminal population. Learn about the Hidden Valley Kings
