Prospective Graduate Students

Spring 2016

Spring semester begins on January 11, 2016. Tours for graduate students (current, potential and pending) interested in graduate or professional schools are available at the following times:

Mondays at 9:30 a.m. 

Wednesdays at 4 p.m.

Fridays at 4 p.m.

Guided tours will end for fall semester on December 2 and resume January 11, 2016 when classes are back in session. There are no tours during holidays or exams.

Tours begin at UNC Visitors’ Center and last 1 – 1.5 hours.  The tour is led by a Carolina graduate student, introduces the campus and the community and includes a review of helpful information on housing, dining, recreation and life in Chapel Hill as a graduate student.  The tour does not visit specific programs, so please contact the department with questions about your program or to request to meet with professors and/or advisors.  Check the department’s website for the appropriate program contact.

No tours are scheduled during holidays (January 18 and March 25) or during spring break (March 12 – 19).

If these guided tour times do not match your schedule, we encourage you to still plan to visit UNC Visitors’ Center as staff will provide insight, access, guidance, orientation to campus as well as the information packet– which will make the self-guided tour brochure more meaningful and finding your specific department quick and easy.

Please do allow 24 –48 hours for a confirmation email.  If you need a faster response, please call UNC Visitors’ Center at 919-962-1630 during regular office hours of 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.

We look forward to showing you our campus and sharing life as a Carolina graduate student with you!
