Graduate Student Tours

Get a glimpse of what your next chapter could look like during this 90-minute tour for enrolled and prospective graduate students. A current Carolina graduate student will introduce you to our campus and community, and review helpful information about life at Carolina as a graduate student. Because this tour does not visit graduate departments, you may contact the graduate and professional schools you are interested in with questions or requests to meet with professors or advisors. Check the department’s website for the appropriate program contact.

The UNC Visitors Center graduate student tour is a 90-minute walking tour that introduces Carolina history, traditions and hallmarks as well as some of the University’s current endeavors in research, innovation and public service. Included is information related to graduate student life at UNC as well as the many ways The Graduate School supports graduate and professional students from admission to graduation.

Prospective graduate students can schedule a graduate tour, or take a self-guided tour of Carolina using our Visitors Guide.

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 covering are optional in University buildings.
