Physical Plant


The campus of UNC Wilmington is an institutional arboretum. It is intended to educate the campus and regional communities about native and cultivated plants, improve the beauty and atmosphere of the campus setting, engage in and promote the conservation and preservation of our natural resources, and provide public services. As a microcosm of south eastern North Carolina, the UNCW Arboretum will be distinctive. Landscaping throughout the campus will support academic departments with specimen plantings and living laboratories of native biological communities
