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.

During the academic year (August-May), tours are offered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 10am and 2pm and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am and 2pm. During the summer (May-August), tours are offered Mondays and Wednesdays at 10am and 2pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am and 2pm, and Fridays at 10am only. Additionally, we offer various Saturday tours throughout the fall and spring semesters.

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. Click here to sign up for a tour today!

UNCW Holiday Schedule | University Calendar

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 date/time.

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. If your desired Transfer to Teal Tour is full we may still be able to accommodate you, please e-mail us at

Group Tours

Schools and other organizations wishing to request a reservation for a group tour may do so by completing our School Group Tour Request Form. Requests for group tours must be submitted at least three weeks in advance. Please only submit the School Group Tour Request Form if your party is 10 or larger. If smaller, please register each student individually through SeaLevel. Please note we do not currently offer group tours to elementary or middle schools.
