Getting Your One Card

The UNC One Card office is located near student stores:

The One Card acts as a library card and gives card swipe access to the outside doors of the Kenan Music Building, Hill Hall, Person Hall, and the Hill Hall basement practice rooms. The One Card contains your PID (personal identification number) that the library, tech support, and other departments use to identify patrons and log activity. One Cards expire on the last day of work for your current contract. If your contract is renewed your card will automatically activate for the new term regardless of the expiration date listed on the card. You do not need to get a new One Card each year.

Keys and One Card Swipe Access

Email Kaleigh O’Neal to arrange a time to pick up keys for:

  • Office
  • Classrooms
  • Media cabinets

Kaleigh can also request One Card swipe access to the three music buildings and the Hill Hall basement practice rooms.

Daytime Parking

The department has an allotment of parking permits in the Swain (NG1) and Nash (N7) lots available to full-time faculty and staff members based upon rank and years of service. These are priced depending on annual salary and lot location.

If these are not available, other options include UNC’s Park & Ride.

Swain Lot is permit-only during work hours but is open for public use on nights and weekends. 

Weeknights (Monday – Thursday, 5 pm – 7:30 am), parking is $1 per night via the ParkMobile app or the pay station in the lot. Daytime employees without a daytime permit may be eligible for a $25 annual weeknight permit. Please contact the department parking coordinator to request the permit.

On weekends (Friday at 5 pm through Monday at 7:30 am) parking in Swain Lot is free.

Service Permits

The department has two service permits that can be used for up to two hours to load/unload equipment or for guest artist parking.
