UNC Visitors Center update

In an effort to mitigate the potential effects of coronavirus on our campus, the UNC Visitors Center is closed until further notice. All tours are canceled. We did not come to these decisions lightly and did so with the health and well-being of our entire community in mind, while also following federal and state guidelines.  

Visiting the Carolina campus is not allowed at this time. Due to COVID-19, many of Carolina’s buildings are closed and in-person, non-essential services have been suspended. Groups of 10 or more are not allowed to gather on or off campus, and students and essential staff remaining on campus are directed to stay six feet apart. Further, Orange County and the Town of Chapel Hill have issued stay-at-home orders to help stop the spread of the virus.

We appreciate your understanding during these challenging times and hope you’ll visit us when the campus returns to its normal operating schedule.
