View from front of Law School

The Office of Admissions welcomes prospective students to Schedule a Visit during the fall and spring semesters between September and April. The visitation program is structured to efficiently provide our guests with a realistic sense of what to expect as a law student. Guests may meet with an admissions representative; meet with our financial aid director; tour the building with a current student; and/or observe a first-year law class.

Self-guided tours are the primary means of seeing the school from late April into early September. If you would like to visit during this time, please first verify that the Kathrine R. Everett Law Library is open. When the Kathrine R. Everett Law Library is open, you may freely enter the building through the side door next to the flagpole. Maps, self-guided tour sheets, and more information can be found in the Portico on the 5th floor. You may also use our Virtual Tour to navigate the building.

Additionally, the UNC Visitors’ Center offers tours of the university campus to prospective graduate students. The walk from Van Hecke-Wettach Hall to the Visitor’s Center is approximately 14 minutes.
