Quiet Room

Located in room 016 on the ground floor of Rosenau Hall, the quiet room is open to all Gillings students, staff and faculty.  It is intended to be a multipurpose space for meditation, yoga, prayer, reading quietly, power naps and a safe place to find relief from normal daily stress and over-stimulation we all face.

There are two ways to reserve the room.  You can block 30 minutes in Outlook by searching for “SPH Quiet Space” which will automatically book the room on the digital sign located next to the room once you have selected your desired time.   When booking through Outlook, your name will display on the digital sign.  If you wish to book the room anonymously, you can reserve time directly on the digital sign.  We do ask that you limit your use to 30 minutes per reservation. The Gillings Quiet Room is open between 7:00AM and 7:00PM Monday – Friday.

Recycling

Indoor and outdoor recycling and trash removal is managed by UNC Facilities Services’ Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling (OWRR). They provide additional services such as confidential paper pick-up, temporary bins for large office clean-outs, and Green Events training.

The Gillings School is serviced on Tuesday each week. View your building’s bin locations and pick-up schedule.

Please help keep hallways safe and clean by requesting pick-ups and neatly placing all items to be removed at designated recycling and trash removal locations.

  • Battery Recycling: The battery recycling buckets are located in the Facilities Office in 204 Rosenau Hall and 1101 Michael Hooker Research Center.
  • Cardboard Recycling: Corrugated cardboard should be flattened completely and can then be placed by trash cans for removal by Housekeeping Services. It also can be taken directly to the blue cardboard dumpster or compactor on Dauer Drive.
  • Shredded Paper: Shredded paper must be bagged in clear bags and can be placed at any recycling site for pick-up.
  • Toner and Ink Cartridges: For easy storage, keep the toner cartridge box. When a cartridge is finished, place it in the box. Call (919) 962-3348 for pick-up of your used cartridge. Additionally, you may fill out this form (PDF) and fax it to (919) 962-0589 or scan/email it to chrisgib@email.unc.edu to request a pick-up. All UNC employees can recycle inkjet printer cartridges by sending them through campus mail to the Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling at CB #1805.

Additional information can be found on OWRR’s What Can I Recycle? page.
