Carolina has benefitted from a $2.3 billion capital construction program that ranks among the most ambitious in American public higher education. A $3.1 billion bond referendum for higher education, approved by North Carolina voters in 2000, provided more than $515 million for 49 construction and renovation projects on the Carolina campus.
Milestone projects include:
- The North Carolina Cancer Hospital, one of five campus hospitals that are part of the UNC Health Care System.
- The Carolina Physical Science Complex, which provides 460,000 square feet of new laboratory and classroom space.
- The renovated Memorial Hall, located in the heart of the historic campus and home to Carolina Performing Arts, which brings to Chapel Hill world-class performers in music and dance.
