The Property Office is responsible for the leasing of off-campus properties to meet departmental space needs, such as office and storage space, that cannot be met in existing campus space, preparing specifications for space needs, securing necessary approvals and performing all related tasks associated with the occupancy of off-campus space.  Our office is also responsible for managing University-owned rental properties, including 16 rental houses for faculty and staff, administering University leases and managing all aspects of Endowment and UNC-CH Foundation-owned properties.

Off-Campus Departmental Leases

The Property Office will provide the required forms, information and assistance to acquire off-campus space.  Please contact Leasing Manager, Linda Oakley at 919-962-9062, for more information.

The procedure for leasing off-campus space is as follows:

  • UNC Space must not be available
  • Prior to official submission of a lease request, and well in advance of the need for the space, informal discussion with the Property Office Leasing Manager is highly encouraged.
  • The Lease Request Form must be completed and submitted to the Property Office with an organizational chart that includes titles, FTEs, and salary grades (download the form below).
  • If Central Overhead funds are required to fund the lease payments, additional approval is required by the Budget Committee through the Property Office.
