Our information sessions are held in a variety of on-campus locations. Please check your confirmation email prior to arrival to confirm your event location.
The GPS address of our office is 174 Country Club Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27599.

School Bus Parking Instructions
Buses that are accompanying groups of 10- 50 students visiting UNC may park in one of two locations, both indicated by a red circle on the following map: Directions and Parking (Updated 8.16.16).
One bus space is available at the corner of Boundary Street and Battle Lane on a first-come, first-served basis. This space converts into permit parking after 12 pm. Bus parking is also available in the travel lane directly in front of the Smith Center (on Skipper Bowles drive). Neither option requires a permit. Please drop your group off at Jackson Hall before parking your bus at the Dean Smith Center. Please also be sure to arrange a meeting time and place for the bus to pick up your group following your visit.
