Tent/Membrane Permit

Program Overview

The NC Fire Code (NCFC) requires tents, canopies and other membrane structures to be evaluated for fire and life safety and a permit issued prior to the event. For all State-owned property the NC State Construction Office is responsible for that evaluation and granting of a permit.

Instructions: Complete all sections of the UNC Charlotte Tent/Membrane Permit form if the membrane structure is over 400 square feet, a tent over 800 square feet with sides/flaps or 1800 square feet without sides.  The completed form and attachments should be submitted to the Environmental Health and Safety Office at least 15 days prior to your event to assure adequate coordination and approval.  If you have any questions please contact EHS at 704-687-1111 or email ehsoffice@uncc.edu
