Take a Tour



There is no better place for UNE to be than in the world-renowned Moroccan city of Tangier. This glimmering "white city" has been home to an international contingent of painters and writers and is now one of the major economic and cultural hubs of the region. Tangier is home to the first U.S. building listed on the National Register of Historic Places not located on U.S. soil, and the first and oldest American school in Morocco. The city is a mere 40-minute ferry ride from Spain and only a few hours away from Casablanca, Fez and Marrakesh.

Please check with your advisers on how best to take advantage of this semester in Tangier and plan ahead.
