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 hosts an official visitation program during the fall and spring semesters between September and April. As part of the visitation program, visitors can meet with an admissions representative; meet with a financial aid representative; tour the building with a current student; and/or observe a first year class. Let us know when you would like to visit and we'll email you with an itinerary for your visit.

Official tours and class visitations for the fall semester will begin in mid-September. Available visitation dates will be available for viewing and selection in early September. Tours are available Monday through Friday at 12:00 p.m.

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

  • Monday, September 7 (Labor Day holiday)
  • Friday, October 9 (1L Practice Exams)
  • Monday, October 12 (University Day - no classes)
  • Thursday and Friday, October 15-16 (Fall Break)

The last day to participate in the Fall 2015 official visitation program is Monday, November 23.

Class visitations are available Monday through Friday. Depending on the day, visitors will observe either Civil Procedure or Contracts, both first year courses.

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.

Self-Guided Tours

When you visit the school, consider picking up a Self-Guided Tour (PDF) from the front desk. 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. The Virtual Tour feature (linked above in the upper right of the webpage) allows for audio accompaniment of your tour using a mobile device.
