OSR Office in AOB Open to Visitors
In alignment with the University’s return to campus guidance, the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) has opened our office to the public beginning Monday, July 19. Please see below for more information about this transition.
Where is OSR’s office located and what are the office hours?
OSR is located on the 2nd floor of the Administrative Office Building (AOB) in suite 2200.
104 Airport Drive, Suite 2200, Chapel Hill, NC 27599 (Google Directions)
Visitors to OSR in AOB are welcome weekdays from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM. Appointments are not required for AOB drop-in visits for delivering original documents such as mail, checks, and other items requiring OSR assistance for processing.
Who will be available to assist at OSR’s physical office?
As we mentioned above, OSR is opening our physical office to both align with the University’s return to campus and to provide more flexibility in support for your sponsored project needs. However, this does not mean that all our office team members will return to working on campus. With your collaboration, OSR remains fully operational while working remotely with minimal impact. Our office team members will continue to virtually meet and communicate with you and we remain committed to providing the service and support you need with sponsored programs administration.
Our team members working in AOB during office hours will be able to receive and process your deliveries and provide general guidance. If you have specific questions or issues, please refer to OSR’s Contact Us webpage to identify the best email contact or use the RAMSeS Contact Finder to identify the Sponsored Projects Specialist or Sponsored Projects Accountant assigned to a proposal or project.
What should I know or be prepared for before I visit OSR’s office?
OSR will adhere to the University’s Community Standards and require that face masks be worn at all times while in our office and social distancing of three to six feet must be practiced. Our office personnel will also be following these standards and be masked and distanced at all times while providing service.
During our office hours, the doors to AOB and OSR’s office suite 2200 will be unlocked, so please come in and stop at our front reception for assistance.
In addition, please monitor your health – if you have any symptoms listed on the COVID-19 symptom list, do not come to campus. You may reach OSR at (919) 966-3411 or ResAdminOSR@unc.edu and we will be happy to provide no-contact assistance.
Do we need to deliver all items in person to OSR’s office?
No. All processes utilized during OSR’s continuity of operations remain in effect. If you wish to use our green mail drop box at AOB to deliver original documents for OSR to process (i.e., agreements, checks, etc.), please continue to do so. Our response schedule is not changing and we will continue to monitor and process all deliveries.
We look forward to welcoming visitors again at AOB and hope everyone has a safe return to campus! For any questions or concerns on this announcement, please contact ResAdminOSR@unc.edu.
