The A.K. Hinds University Center provides an inclusive student-centered community that supports and encourages student learning, leadership opportunities, personal development, and active learning in a caring atmosphere.
Named for the late Anthony Keith Hinds, former dean and professor of mathematics at WCU, the University Center (UC) is the hub of student social life on campus. The UC features a two-story atrium, meeting rooms, a grand ballroom, a 170-seat movie theater, club Illusions, the official WCU gift shop, an expanded food court, and the student mailroom. Also included are the Intercultural Affairs office and the Office of Leadership and Student Involvement with offices, workspace, and conference rooms for clubs and organizations.
To better serve our visitors, the UC also has ATMs (located in the entranceway on the first floor); computer stations located throughout the second and third floors (printing services not available); wireless internet access available throughout the building; and copy and fax services (fees apply) located in the administrative offices on the second floor. In order to use our wireless internet access (if you are not a current student or faculty/staff member) you must contact Information Technology to have an account set up.
