The University is currently operating under Reduced Campus Services and Operations due to COVID-19
We are excited to launch our new Sense of Place Zoom tour, a 45-minute-long virtual tour hosted live by a tour guide who shares a video tour that introduces campus history and traditions as well as some of the University’s current endeavors in research and innovation.

This includes staying at least 6 feet away from others whenever possible in all indoor and outdoor settings. Individuals should avoid gathering in large groups and avoid crowded areas. When indoors, all individuals must wear a face covering and maintain 6 feet of physical distance or observe facility-specific requirements. When outdoors, individuals must wear a face covering when appropriate physical distancing is not possible.

With historic buildings and picturesque landscaping, Carolina's campus is iconic, and some of the University's most beautiful spots are worth a closer look.
More than 225 years ago, a radical idea took root in North Carolina: higher education, funded by the people, for the people. As we enter the third decade of this millennium, the challenges we face today are great, but, as we have demonstrated for more than two centuries, we are built to face great challenges.
Take a sip from the Old Well on your first day of classes to get good grades. Sign your name on the bricks inside the Bell Tower as a senior. Relax in the sun on Polk Place. Carolina is filled with traditions - some that date back for decades and others that are new - that students cherish today.
“It’s a great day to be a Tar Heel” is a phrase you’ll often hear around Carolina, and for a good reason. Every day, Tar Heels create a positive impact on the world by improving their communities and inspiring change through their talents. They’re artists, scientists, humanitarians, researchers and innovators doing extraordinary things.
