If you’re using GPS, this is the physical address for UNC School of Social Work’s primary campus location:
325 Pittsboro Street
Chapel Hill, NC 27516
Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building is on the western edge of the UNC-Chapel Hill campus, across Pittsboro Street from the State Employees Credit Union and between FedEx Global Education Center and UNC School of Public Health.
There is one metered visitor’s space beside Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building. All other spaces require a permit to park.
During weekdays, a good option for visitor parking is the Dogwood Parking Deck across from UNC Hospital. The fee is $1.50 per hour. From this deck, you’ll follow this path to come to our School (allow about 15 minutes for the walk):
- Turn left and walk up Manning Drive.
- Turn right at South Columbia Street.
- Cross South Columbia Street at the Health Sciences Library crosswalk.
- Look for an opening in the brick wall to your right. Go through this opening and follow the curving brick sidewalk, passing between Rosenau and Kerr buildings. After you have passed Rosenau, turn right — you will see Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building ahead. The main entrance is on the back side of the building (facing campus, not facing Pittsboro Street).
