The University Ombuds Office is available for in-person, phone, and virtual appointments. We are unable to offer walk-in services at this time. 

Please call (919) 843-8204 or email to schedule a consultation with an ombuds. As a confidential resource, we use email for scheduling purposes only. We ask that you not share the details of your situation, or related correspondence, by email.

We look forward to talking with you.


The University Ombuds Office is a safe place where all Carolina staff, faculty, students and administrators are welcome to come and talk in confidence about any campus issue, problem, or dispute. Our office supplements, but does not replace, the University’s formal channels, such as the grievance policy. We invite you to review our brochure and charter to learn more.

Contact us as a first step, or as a last resort, or anywhere along the way. Come and share your concerns, evaluate your situation, and plan your next step—if you want to take a next step.

Use of our services is voluntary and free. Visitors will find our office a safe place to discuss their concerns, no matter how large or small.

We also welcome suggestions about how to improve Carolina, and we invite you to share good news with us.

We are happy to visit your office, unit, or department to describe our services.
