Current Volunteers

We appreciate all of our hard-working and caring volunteers at UNC Medical Center. Please visit the links below to find important information for current volunteers.

Recording Volunteer Hours

All volunteers working at Chapel Hill or Hillsborough Hospital must sign in and out at one of the kiosks (which are located in the Volunteer Services office, the Memorial Hospital and Cancer Hospital Info Desks, and the Hillsborough Hospital workroom). All volunteers may view and print their hours in the “My History” tab on the web kiosk sign-in at Volunteer Services in Memorial or Hillsborough Hospitals.

If you volunteer somewhere other than Chapel Hill or Hillsborough Hospital, or you forgot to log in your hours at a kiosk, volunteers may submit their hours using the online volunteer hour submission form. Volunteers should tally their hours by each month and submit at the end of each month.

Office Locations and Contact Information

The Volunteer Services office in Chapel Hill is located on the ground floor of NC Memorial Hospital, behind the escalators and dental clinic. You may ask the Information Desk for additional directions. The Volunteer Services office in Hillsborough is located on the ground floor around the corner from the Chapel through the Volunteer Workroom.
