Schedule a Campus Tour

The University of North Carolina School of the Arts encourages you to "step on our stage" before applying. On our campus tours you will see each of the art schools and some of the common areas such as Hanes Student Commons, the Library and dining spots. An Admissions Counselor will be available after the tour to answer questions about the application process.

Weekday Campus Visits

Tours are offered on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 10 a.m. Please schedule your tour a day ahead so we know you are coming.

All tours are walking tours. The campus is on a hill so you'll have your ups and downs. A general tour of the campus is about 1 hour and 30 minutes. If special assistance is required, please contact the Office of Admissions a week ahead of your planned visit.

Meet in the Welcome Center lobby located near the South Main Street entrance. Parking is available in the Welcome Center parking lot.
