Carrington Hall Phase One Work Zone and Pedestrian Routes

Construction of the UNC School of Nursing’s new nursing education building will begin Monday, March 4 and is expected to be completed in fall 2026.

The new 110,000-square-foot building will replace the original west wing of Carrington Hall, constructed in 1969, with a state-of-the art facility that will enable the school to increase class sizes, expand simulation and clinical learning spaces, and provide the latest technologies to better prepare students for their nursing careers.

The project will include the demolition of the west wing of Carrington Hall and will require the closure of the area between Medical Drive, the remaining east wing of Carrington Hall, Roper Hall and Bondurant Hall. Pedestrians should follow designated pedestrian detours and remain alert to construction vehicles entering and exiting the work zone at access gates.

The bus lane on South Columbia Street and the adjacent sidewalk will close on Monday, March 4. The bus stop at South Columbia Street at Carrington Hall (#3222) will remain closed, and transit riders should use the South Columbia Street at Health Sciences Library stop (#3223).
