About the Rizzo Center

Our executive education campus, the Paul J. Rizzo Conference Center, is set in a 28-acre, wooded environment located less than 20 minutes from Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) and one mile from the main UNC Chapel Hill campus. Designed exclusively for adult learning, the retreat-like setting underscores UNC’s commitment to delivering quality executive education programs to support meaningful reflection and lasting learning. All buildings are walking distance apart.

The Rizzo Center’s meeting space offers tiered and flat classroom space with the latest AV capabilities, flat screen TVs, ergonomic seating, and walls lined with whiteboards. Spaces are flanked with an abundance of study areas and breakout rooms to accommodate team projects and group work.

The Rizzo Center features 183 boutique hotel rooms with networking spaces throughout. Each room was designed to feel especially inviting and comfortable with luxurious bathrooms, premium bedding, top-of-the-line technology including data ports, Wi-Fi, TVs with laptop access and complete ADA accessibility. Guest pantries on each floor offer coffee and tea stations and are fully stocked with snacks.

The Rizzo Center also includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, outdoor infinity heated lap pool, a basketball court, and jogging trails. Our culinary team develops fresh, seasonal menus for guests to enjoy at several dining locations, including the historic Georgian revival home, the DuBose House, the Shaffer-Kenan Sports Lounge, the Meadowmont Grill, or any of the indoor or outside private reception areas.
