Where can I park?

Use this website to generate driving directions. You may park in the McIver Parking Deck adjacent to the Music Building. When you enter, push the button and take a ticket. Drive carefully up the ramp and find a parking space somewhere on Floors, 2, 3, 4, or 5. Walk to the Music Building. At check-in, we will be giving you an exit pass to use when you leave the deck at the end of the day. It is good for one exit only. This pass will save you the daily parking fee.


Do I need to accompany my student(s)?

We recommend that a parent or guardian attends the Open House with their student(s). Although most of the available events will not allow for additional persons with the students, there will be spaces to sit and relax. Gardens, green spaces, local dining, and shops are all within walking distance. UNCG also hosts a guest WiFi network for internet access.


Can I drive myself or ride with friends?

Each student, along with their parent or guardian, must decide what best fits the needs of all involved. The School of Music will not impose a requirement.


What should I wear and bring?

Dress casually and wear comfortable shoes – you’ll be doing a little walking. Check the forecast and bring an umbrella for walking to lunch if needed. We will provide a map and directions to some lunch options on campus or nearby. Bring some money for lunch and possibly a visit to the University Bookstore or the Music Marketplace.


How long is the day?

Check-in for Open House begins at either 8:30 AM (TTh) or 9:00 AM (MWF) and will be followed by a brief welcome session. Classes and informal gatherings will run throughout the day until 4:00 PM.


What if I need to arrive late or leave early?

We request that you let us know your schedule conflicts as soon as possible. You can reach out to music@uncg.edu with any concerns or questions.


Will I be able to obtain an absence letter for my school?

The School of Music staff are happy to provide an absence letter. These will be available at the end of your session.
