Spend Your Weekend with UNCWeekends

A normal weekend at UNCW is full of activities for students! UNCWeekends hosts a wide variety of activities on campus to ensure you can never say 'there is nothing to do!' Examples of events hosted by the UNCWeekends program include:

  • BINGO Night: Classic and signature events for each jazzed up with a unique theme.
  • Catching Up With the Crafts: We bring the supplies, you bring the creativity.

The UNCWeekends program leads weekends at UNCW, but we certainly are not the only ones planning events! Check out other opportunities such as the Association for Campus Entertainment's (ACE) film series in Lumina Theatre or the UNCW Athletics schedule to truly plan out a great weekend.

UNCWeekends works with local entertainment venues to give students alcohol-free and affordable experiences all around Wilmington, too!
