Most of the older buildings are on the north side of campus while the south side houses the medical school and hospital. The Carolina Inn is located towards the middle of campus... More

UNC is an excellent place to visit with anyone from anywhere. You will not run out of things to do or visit. Driving or walking the campus is First Class!

The campus is beautiful and well laid out for walking at driving. The proximity to restaurants, shops, and activities as well as multiple bus stops allows student and employees to enjoy all that chapel hill to offer.

Gorgeous campus, old school cobblestone & brick feel, makes you think of bygone eras. Visit the main Library if possible, like stepping back in time or into Hogwarts! So many beautiful trees and green lawn areas. The bell tower is very cool as is the famous old well. Oldest University in America, so worthy of a long day of walking... More

I took my grandson to the basketball camp at the end of June, 2015. He stayed in the dorm and i stayed in town. Chapel Hill is beautiful as is the campus. A very large construction project was underway on the campus and had to detour several times but still worth the time and effort to visit. Attended First Methodist... More
