The stunning new campus addition Levine Hall was officially dedicated on April 13. On hand for the ceremony was Mr. Leon Levine - he and wife Sandra are the ones who made it all possible. The Levines have contributed more than $18M to establish the prestigious merit-based Levine Scholars Program in 2009.
Named to honor their generosity, Levine Hall houses the Levine Scholars and University Honors College administrative offices, as well as student residents from both programs. The building, which officially opened in January 2017, boasts 425 beds, with suite- and apartment-style room configurations and is situated near the University’s main entrance.
"Levine Hall is named for two very special friends of the University who continuously support UNC Charlotte's role as a leading university of the 21st century," said Chancellor Philip L. Dubois. "Like Sandra and Leon Levine, the top scholars who reside in Levine Hall enrich this campus and inspire us all to achieve more. They take their talent into the greater community and help make the Charlotte region a better place."
In addition to living and office space, Levine Hall includes work-study areas, faculty work stations, private one-on-one and seminar spaces, as well as “hotel” accommodations for visiting faculty or lecturers.

“We were honored when we learned that the new facility being built to house the Levine Scholars and the University’s honor students would bear our name,” said Leon Levine. “We are even more excited today, as we actually get to see the Levine Scholars in their new home.”
