EXPLORE UNC GREENSBORO
The journey to finding the college that’s right for you often starts with a campus visit. At UNC Greensboro, our students tell us their campus tour was the moment they just knew this was the right university for them. UNCG takes pride in being a community where everyone finds their place, their home, their people – whether that’s joining one of more than 300 student groups, enjoying some friendly competition with intramural sports, participating in a leadership development program, or living out UNCG’s motto of Service.
We offer several opportunities for you to discover UNCG through weekly campus tours, fall and spring open houses for prospective students, spring visit days for admitted students, Latinx events, and a variety of virtual sessions.
The best way to experience UNCG is to visit campus! In-person tours for Undergraduate Students are offered each weekday and select Saturday’s throughout the year. You’ll have the opportunity to meet with an admissions counselor and hear from a current UNCG student to get your questions answered. Groups of 10 or more should schedule their visit as a group tour.
Tours with the Graduate School are also available by request. Graduate tours are designed to last anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on area of academic interest.
