The UNC T-Shirt Archive is an online collection of historic T-shirts from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This digital-only collection includes shirts spanning many decades and covering all aspects of student life, from sports and Greek life to student protests and events.
If you have a UNC shirt that is fun, interesting, important, or just looks good, we’d like to preserve a photo of it in the University Archives.
