Explore Carolina: Take a Sense of Place Tour

There’s no place on earth quite like Carolina. Our history is a living, breathing presence on campus, connecting our contemporary community to a legacy as old as our nation. Here at the Visitors Center, we want to share the many stories of our extraordinary university and introduce you to the innovation, impact and accessibility that define Carolina’s identity today. Whether you’re well-acquainted with UNC-Chapel Hill or setting foot on campus for the first time, there’s something here for everyone. We invite you to explore Carolina - stop in for guidance, recommendations and insights - let us tailor your visit to make sure that you experience all that is special about Carolina.
