Bernie Sanders Rally on UNC Campus - Sept. 19

​The political candidate will hold a rally on UNC Campus September 19 starting at 5:30 p.m. at Bell Tower Amphitheater. Heavy pedestrian and vehicular traffic is expected throughout the afternoon and evening. This may be especially heavy along Emergency Room Drive. Please allow extra time when traveling to and from the hospital.

The capacity for the event has been set at approximately 3,000, but since there is no registration or ticket pre-sale, it is difficult to estimate exactly how many people are expected. Students will be given priority access but there will also be an entry line for the general public. 

The event itself is scheduled from 5:30 - 7 p.m., but impacts on campus near the rally site will affect traffic on campus throughout the day.
