Visit

Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building (TTK), primary home to UNC School of Social Work, is on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We encourage you to visit!

Throughout the year, we offer info sessions for individuals who want to learn more about our degree programs and the admission process. If you would like to visit at another time, please contact our admissions staff to schedule your visit. Most of our students participate in field education off-campus on Wednesday and Thursdays, so if you visit on those days, you may not be able to experience classes and other student activities.

About Chapel Hill

Chapel Hill is in central North Carolina and is two miles south of I-40. Together with neighboring cities Durham and Raleigh, Chapel Hill forms one point of North Carolina’s Research Triangle, the headquarters for many technology firms. Although Chapel Hill is a small town that retains a “village” atmosphere, the area offers world-class amenities, including performing arts, professional sports, festivals, three major research universities, and a diverse cultural scene.

Parking

Illustration: Walking Path from Dogwood Deck to Tate-Turner-Kuralt BuildingParking is very limited at UNC-Chapel Hill, and most parking lots require permits. Adjacent to TTK, there is a very small parking lot with two metered visitor spaces, including accessible parking.

For daytime parking, visitors are encouraged to use the Dogwood Deck, which is directly across from the UNC Hospitals complex and within three blocks of TTK. Please allow 15 minutes to walk from the Dogwood Deck to TTK, using this route:

  1. Exit Dogwood Deck on Manning Drive, turn left and walk to Columbia Street.
  2. Turn right on Columbia Street and walk to Health Sciences Library.
  3. Use the crosswalk at Health Sciences Library to cross Columbia Street.
  4. Look for a brick path that circles to the right side of the building ahead. Follow this path between the Rosenau and Kerr buildings (see illustration). TTK is the five-story building directly behind Kerr Building.

You can also board a Chapel Hill Transit bus on Manning Drive, exiting the bus at Health Sciences library. This will save steps but not time!

There is a $1.50/hour fee to parking at Dogwood Deck (subject to change).

For nighttime parking, most UNC-Chapel Hill parking lots offer a $1 temporary pass for the night (regardless of hours). This temporary pass is not available for the Dogwood Deck but may be used for the Nash (N-7) parking lot, which is one block from TTK. To view a weeknight parking map and purchase a temporary pass for nighttime parking, please refer to this website: https://move.unc.edu/parking/visitor-parking/weeknight-payment/
