Getting to Campus

You must register in advance to participate in on-campus admissions events, Campus Visit Program, or an admissions interview. Specific instructions for each event will be included in your logistics email. The information below is to assist visitors coming to Chapel Hill before arriving to campus. Please call or e-mail us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School!

Getting to UNC Kenan-Flagler

The McColl Building is located at 300 Kenan Drive in Chapel Hill, near the Dean E. Smith Center (the Dean Dome) on UNC Chapel Hill’s campus. It’s the middle building in the three-building U-shaped business school complex.

Parking at the School

Parking for Campus Visits

Parking passes for the visitor’s lot will be sent via email, if you requested one, several days before the visit. Please print your pass to display it on your dashboard. If you didn’t request a parking pass in advance, please contact our office prior to your arrival for additional instructions.

Kenan Center Drive will be temporarily closed due to construction. To access the Kenan-McColl Visitor’s Lot, use the back entrance off Mason Farm Road. Review this map outlining road closures and detours before you arrive.

Parking for other MBA Admissions Events

Please review parking instructions in your event registration confirmation email for details on where you should park for your visit to campus. If you are parking in our Business School Parking Deck, please note that parking is free on the weekend – you will not need a parking pass.

Due to on-campus construction, the only entrance for the Business School Parking Deck is on the first floor, accessible via the S11 parking lot. Review this map for more details on road closures and detours. As a note, the third-level walkway connecting the Business School Parking Deck to the McColl building will be temporarily closed. The only way to access the McColl building from the Parking Deck will be on the sixth level.

Other transportation information

Uber and other ride sharing services operate in our area. We’re located about 30 minutes from the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU International). During morning and afternoon rush hour, please allow for additional travel time. Due to the on-campus construction, we recommend this as an option.


There are numerous hotels in Chapel Hill just a short ride or walk from campus. Many any offer a special UNC rate, if requested. Please note that you are responsible for your own lodging and transportation while visiting Chapel Hill.

Health and safety

In accordance with direction from the University of North Carolina, please follow CDC guidelines when visiting campus. We encourage all participants to be up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations and booster shots. If you are experiencing any symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, fever), we kindly ask that you do not visit campus. Masks and face coverings are not required, however, we respect and support any participant who chooses to wear one.

School closure policy

During winter weather, the university may decide to shut down for everyone’s safety. If the university declares a “Condition 2” or “Condition 3” closure, all campus visit activities and interviews are canceled and the business school will be closed. In case of predicted winter weather, please monitor the university website for closure announcements.
