Schedule a visit

Join us in Chapel Hill for a tour of Carroll Hall led by the MJ-school Ambassadors and a visit with Charlie Tuggle, senior associate dean for undergraduate studies. Tours depart from the main lobby on the first floor of Carroll Hall. Feel free to reserve a spot in advance — or you can just show up! Reservations are not required for academic year tours. Check out the MJSA website for updated information about tour dates and times.

MJ-school tours are scheduled so that visitors have the option of enjoying a complete UNC campus tour led by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions either before or after a 30-minute visit to Carroll Hall.

To register for a UNC campus tour, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Campus tours for graduate students are available from the UNC Visitors' Center.
