North Carolina Central University is growing! There are changes taking place on our campus as a result of three capital projects. We have launched construction of a new Student Center that is being paid for by student debt service fees, along with new a School of Business, which is supported with $30 million from the Connect NC Bond and an additional $8.6 million from the North Carolina State Legislature. Additionally, three new residential buildings--Chidley South, Lawson Street and George Street--will be constructed through a public-private partnership, or P3, to expand housing capacity. 

Updates will be provided on each project as work commences through 2021.

Groundbreaking ceremonies are scheduled for June 26, 2019, for the Chidley South and George Street residence halls and the New Student Center. The ceremonies will begin at 11 a.m., at the Chidley South Residence Hall site (corner of Alston Avenue and Lawson Street between Chidley North and the Nursing Building), followed by the George Street Residence Hall site at 11:30 a.m. (649 George Street) and will conclude at the site of the New Student Center at 12 p.m. (507 Nelson Street across from A.E. Student Union).
