When You Should Visit

We encourage you to visit when classes are in session. This will give you an opportunity to attend a class and to talk with current students and faculty. You may want to view our academic calendar to find those dates - and to avoid exam time.

If you find it necessary to visit outside of regular office hours (8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) or on a holiday, the law school may still be open. When the Kathrine R. Everett Law Library is open (hours), you may freely enter (PDF) the building through the side door. Maps, self-guided tour sheets, and more information can then be found in the Portico on the 5th floor.

Additionally, the UNC Visitors' Center offers tours of the campus to prospective graduate students. The walk from Van Hecke-Wettach Hall to the Visitor's Center is approximately 14 minutes. You may also enjoy the "Tour Carolina" mobile app which offers GPS-guided tours of the university campus highlighting places of significance.

Scheduling a Visit

The Office of Admissions offers student led tours on a regular basis. Student led tours are available from September to April. Let us know when you would like to visit and we'll provide you with times that tours and class visitations will be offered. Official tours and class visitations for the spring semester will begin on Tuesday, January 20, 2015.

Spring tours and class visitations of the law school will not be conducted on the following dates:

  • Friday, March 6, 2015 through Friday, March 13, 2015 (Spring Break Recess)
  • Friday, March 27, 2015 and Friday, April 10, 2015 (Admitted Students Days)
  • Friday, April 3, 2015 (Spring Holiday)

The last day we will offer guided tours and class visitations will be Thursday, April 9, 2015. Tours are available Monday through Friday at 12:00 p.m.

Class visitations are available Monday through Friday from 10:55 a.m. - 11:50 a.m. (Property) or from 1:00 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. (Constitutional Law). Registering in advance is encouraged as the number of guests are limited to class visitations.

As a courtesy to our students and faculty, we kindly ask that visitors refrain from asking questions of the professor during their class visit. Additionally, we ask that visitors who wish to speak with the professor after their class visit do so only after all our current law students have had a chance to speak with the professor. Please turn all cell phones off.

NOTE: Please provide at least five days notice when scheduling your visit.

It will guide you through the building, helping you become familiar with student services, programs, and our school history. Self-guided tours are available during the summer months from late April to early September.
