The fee for Visiting Scholars and Visiting Researchers is $5,000 per semester ($10,000 for the academic year). The fee is to be paid upon arrival, not before. In cases where the length of stay is known from the start that it will be significantly less than a semester or year, the fee will be pro-rated. There is no additional charge for the summer months period following the spring semester or if the research scholar comes during the summer preceding the academic fall semester.
Visiting Research Scholars at UNC School of Law are responsible for arranging their own housing accommodations while at UNC. They are not eligible for university housing, which is only available to enrolled students. However, there are many apartments for rent in Chapel Hill and Carrboro on the bus route or within walking distance from the law school. The Daily Tar Heel (UNC's student-run newspaper) also maintains Carolina's Finest Guide to Off-Campus Housing.
