With the Tar Heels set to return from Phoenix Tuesday evening in possession of a brand new national championship trophy, UNC has invited fans to the Smith Center for a welcome reception beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Admission is free to the public. Doors to the arena are scheduled to open at 5 p.m.
Final Four merchandise, as well as concessions, will be available.
Starting at 5 p.m., shuttles will begin running from two parking lots–which are located off Highway 54 and Friday Center Drive.
Due to traffic concerns and limited parking space, the university is encouraging fans to carpool, walk, bike or use the shuttle service.
The shuttles will drop off in front of the Smith Center until approximately 10 minutes after the start of the Welcome Home ceremony.
Return service to the park-and-ride locations is scheduled to begin just 20 minutes after that.
For those who wish to find parking, the following lots will be available to use: Manning, Bowles, Craige, Jackson, Cardinal and the Business School Deck.
Disability parking can be found at Williamson Lot, with a free shuttle located there as well.
