The location of the Honors Carolina Center for European Study in London, Winston House is an eighteenth-century townhouse located on Bedford Square, near the British Museum, the University of London, and London School of Economics. Purchased with private donations, Winston House is a hub for UNC's study abroad programs and research initiatives across Europe. It is available to University of North Carolina students, faculty, staff, and alumni and is used by other educational institutions in London and the United States.
James Horner Winston, class of 1955, contributed the lead gift. He was an involved alumnus who served at various times on the UNC Board of Visitors, the General Alumni Association board, and the board of the Arts and Sciences Foundation. At his request, the name on Winston House reflects the family's involvement with the university, which goes back six generations to the 1840s.
