Attend an Open House

Experience the campus for a day and discover why the University of North Carolina School of the Arts is the place for exceptionally talented students to train and study.

During the Open Houses, typically held each fall and spring, you have a guided walking tour on the campus that includes movie set facades, music and dance practice rooms, and stunning performance venues and screening spaces. It is a chance to see the department of your interest, up close and personal - meet the deans, faculty, and current students. Talk to the admissions counselors about becoming a part of UNCSA's community of artists.
