The UNC School of Social Work is located in the Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building on the western edge of the campus. Our building is located across the street from the State Employees Credit Union, and is between the FedEx Global Education Center and the School of Public Health.
Parking is limited and a schlep. But the buses are free! The NS and CL stop right across from our building.
There are two handicapped spaces beside the Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building. All other spaces require a permit to park.
The best option for visitors to UNC SSW is the Dogwood Deck. This is the large, tiered pay parking at UNC Hospital. It is just under a half-mile walk to the School of Social Work (Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building).
Walking directions to the School from the Dogwood Deck:
- Walk left up Manning Dr.
- Turn right onto S. Columbia Street.
- At the Health Sciences Library crosswalk (traffic light), cross S. Columbia Street.
- Turn right and follow first brick path on the left. The Tate-Turner-Kuralt building will be on the right.
Allow about 15 minutes walking time.
Public pay lots in the downtown area of Chapel Hill are a little further, but reasonable options if you are also spending time in Chapel Hill.
On weekends or after 5:00pm, parking is available here
