University Events Office

The University Events Office (UEO) is a unit within the Student Engagement and Leadership department responsible for centralized operational coordination and support of all events on the campus of North Carolina Central University (NCCU).

Our Mission

The University Events Office (UEO) works collaboratively with student organizations, faculty, staff, alumni and community members to foster the development of amazing experiences (activities and events) within the NCCU Student Center and Alfonso Elder Student Union. Our goal is to provide a transformative experience, whether it is with a student group, conference, private event or celebration. 

Alfonso Elder Student Union

The Alfonso Elder Student Union (SU) provides support to the areas of Student Affairs and Business and Auxiliary Services. This facility houses our University barbershop, hair salon and postal services, as well as meeting rooms and multi-purpose spaces that service up to 300 people.

NCCU Student Center

The NCCU Student Center (NSC) at North Carolina Central University is designed with a focus on student success.  The facility has a modern open concept layout designed to encourage intentional and passive engagement.  As students flow through the facility, they will find an array of open spaces that allow for them to informally interact with each other and engage with staff who will help them identify more opportunities to get involved with campus activities. In addition, this facility also is equipped to host community engagement opportunities such as weddings, reunions, community meetings, political events and celebrations.
