Chapel Hill, North Carolina is a unique and thriving community with a small town feel and big-city resources.

Part of a triangle of cities deeply connected to the largest research park in the nation, we’re less than a half-hour from Raleigh and Durham. Our town and University buses are free and can get you wherever you’re going.

In every corner of campus, you’ll find sights and scenes that start to feel like good friends — the low stone walls and red brick walks, lush trees, native North Carolina plants and flowers, the Bell Tower chiming the hour. Wander through Coker Arboretum. Grab your first good-luck sip at the Old Well. Ponder the cosmos in our Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. Take it all in at the Pit, or visit the greats at the Carolina Basketball Museum – there’s lots for you to do and see.
