Information about Building Addresses on Campus

When publicizing an on-campus event or co-sponsoring one with an off-campus entity that's helping with the publicity, make sure that the correct information for the event's location is used and not UNC's mailing/shipping address (501 20th St.), which sometimes shows up in online search results.

Because some campus buildings' locations make seeing (or even assigning) a street address difficult, use UNC's new online map to locate the nearest major intersection to a building.

For example, Michener Library uses "14th Ave. & 20th St." to describe its general location. Be sure to activate the map's building and street name layers by clicking on them in the Layers menu. If you want to locate the name of the nearest parking lot, also click on the parking lot layer.

Plans for updated building signs on campus include their street addresses.
