Welcome for New Employees
Welcome aboard! This page will supplement your official orientation with basic information and helpful resources. Your mentor, supervisor, or assistant should have explained the most important topics. For specific topics such as printer access, travel, etc., please see the menu above.
Institution: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC, or UNC-CH)
School: Gillings School of Global Public Health (GSGPH) – You will see SPH used but it is not the official designation.
Department: Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering, (ESE; listed for courses as ENVR)
Our department has space in five buildings:
- Rosenau Hall
- McGavran-Greenberg Hall
- Michael Hooker Research Center
- Baity Labs, and
- 1700 MLK Blvd.
You will most likely spend all your time in the first three. If you’re lost and no one is around, try the floor plans! See the keys page for all forms of access, including access to the buildings or lab wing.
There is a small cafe in the Hooker Atrium which carries salads, burritos, sandwiches, and snacks. There is also a coffee shop in the Health Sciences Library across S Columbia Street. For a larger variety, try the Beach Cafe in Brinkhous-Bullitt. The easiest way to get there is by going through Bondurant Hall.
