Sense of Place Tour
Welcome to Carolina! The UNC Visitors Center offers its popular hour-long in-person Sense of Place tour that introduces campus history and traditions as well as some of the University’s current endeavors in research and innovation. We believe Carolina is a very special place, and we look forward to sharing it with you.
Please note that this is NOT an admissions tour.
Graduate Student Tour
The Visitors Center also offers a 90-minute walking graduate student tour hosted by a current graduate student tour guide. Building on the Sense of Place tour, the graduate tour includes information relating to graduate student life at Carolina as well as the many ways The Graduate School supports graduate and professional students.
Our tour capacity is 25 guests and spots fill quickly. If your preferred date and time is not available, please consider the waiting list and check back as more dates are added and cancellations are updated to release availability.
If you would like a self-guided tour of Carolina, our interactive Visitors Guide is helpful as you explore our campus. Students, faculty, staff and visitors are asked to adhere to our community standards and county requirements to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Face coverings are optional in University buildings.
Zoom Sense of Place Tour
We also offer our Zoom Sense of Place tour. This 45-minute interactive tour is presented via Zoom with a live host welcoming guests to campus, a recorded video of our popular Sense of Place tour, and four live question and answer sessions with fun interactive polls. We end the tour with a minute-long video of a time-honored campus tradition, “Hark the Sound.”
* More dates coming soon.
