Campus Tour Schedule
The ideal way to experience the UNCW campus is with a campus tour, guided by our enthusiastic UNCW Student Ambassadors, Seahawk Admissions Network for Diversity (SAND) members and Transfer to Teal Guides. Tours are only offered when classes are in session; tours are not offered on holidays. If a date is not available, you will not be able to select it when signing up via SeaLevel.
Academic Year (August 10 - May 6):
|Morning Tour||10 AM||11 AM||10 AM||11 AM||10 AM|
|Afternoon Tour||2 PM||2 PM||2 PM||2 PM||2 PM|
Register for a Campus Tour
Each student must register for a campus tour. This means if your group includes three prospective students traveling together, each student should register separately.
To register for a campus tour, login to your SeaLevel account and click on "Visit UNCW" on the navigation area on the left of your home page. Then choose "Schedule a Tour" from the drop-down menu. Finally, select the date you wish to visit and input the required information. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail on file with your SeaLevel account confirming your visit. Please be sure to check your Spam folder if you do not see this confirmation right away.
Due to space limitations, if a
particular tour date or time is full (or a tour is not being offered on
that day) SeaLevel will not allow you to choose that
Transfer to Teal Tours
Prospective UNCW transfer students have the option of signing up for a Transfer to Teal Friday campus tour designed exclusively for transfer students. These tours will take place on select Fridays at 1:00 pm and include an information session from a Transfer Counselor as well as a Teal Guide led tour of campus. Students must sign up via SeaLevel.
If you are a transfer student and unable to visit at any of our designated Transfer to Teal Friday tours, you are always welcome to sign up and attend a daily tour, please see the information above.

What to Expect During Your Visit
Campus tours will last approximately one-and-a-half to two hours. Your tour will begin with a 20-30 minute information session with an admission counselor, which serves as a brief overview and introduction to the university and an in-depth look at the admission process and requirements. A walking tour of campus will begin immediately after this information session and cover all academic and student life aspects of campus.
Since all of our campus tours follow a predetermined route, you are encouraged to make appointments for before or after your tour with any other departments of interest before arriving on campus (e.g. a particular academic department of interest, Scholarships & Financial Aid, Athletics, the Honors Scholars Program, etc.).
Touring On-Campus Housing
UNCW policy prohibits campus tours from going inside of our residential facilities. Under no circumstances will a tour group or guest be permitted to tour on-campus housing. For this reason, you may want to view photos, video, and floor plans of the various residential locations prior to your visit on the Housing & Residence Life web page.
When guests arrive on campus, they will be given the opportunity to view a “mock” freshman dorm room in the James Hall auditorium. Furnished by the Office of Housing and Residence Life and Bed Bath & Beyond, the room is an exact replica of what prospective students will be living in within UNCW’s own residence halls. All students who come to visit UNCW for a campus tour will be able to view the room.
