Don't Forget: Do These Now!
Take a (virtual) tour of the HSL
Some resources and services are not currently available at HSL due to the COVID pandemic. Furnishings on publicly accessible floors have been rearranged to comply with campus distancing requirements while maximizing study space for our users.
We appreciate your helping keep other library users and library staff safe by wearing your mask at HSL and maintaining physical distance.
Set up the campus network on all your devices. It will save you time when you do library research.
- Allow up to 24 hours, once the registration process is complete, for the registration to take effect on the networks (usually takes an hour or two).
BEST BET: Plan ahead (several days) and get help from the experts at School of Medicine IT (SOM IT).

About the Carolina Veterans Resource Center
The Carolina Veterans Resource Center (CVRC) is the next iteration of the efforts of the Office of the Dean of Students and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to serve and support the Carolina student veteran and military-affiliated student population. The CVRC will serve as a central location for these students to find resources as well as a community to support and aide them during their journey as Tar Heels. The Center provides study space, a lounge, conference rooms, and a lactation room.
From prospective student support, from and to our Red, White, and Carolina Blue Graduation Ceremony, the CVRC will serve as a hub for the support and recognition of our military-affiliated student population throughout their Carolina experience.
