A lovely campus especially during the spring when everything is in bloom and seeing the students bustling around. The museums are wonderful as well as the concert hall. Be sure to visit the Morehead Planetarium. Franklin St has some nice restaurants including Carolina Café and West 411.

I went there for a lacrosse game vs UNC and the campus is breathtaking. This is more of a word of advise than a actual review: They do not allow signs bigger than 8x10 at a sporting event. I brought one bigger and they confiscated my sign that simply said Go Hop because of campus rules. Leave your signs at... More

Chapel Hill offers the visitor a good view of its campus by foot, which today seems rare as so many campus grounds are spred out and scattered. The buildings were a walk back into a different time with greenery in abundance and walkways in every direction,neatly kept. A view of some monuments is possible on East Franklin Street from a...

Visit the main library - fantastic exhibit of Raleigh period furniture! It's a huge campus and worth booking onto a free tour. We were lucky to have our own tour-guide, a friend, studying there.

Not only is the campus beautiful, but almost every professor I've ever been acquainted with or involved in working with have been outstanding in their fields. It is a great educational university and when it comes to tuition only one of the few that is so economical. We're looking forward to having our granddaughter attend the University of North Carolina... More

Love it! We are very bias, but we love everything about Chapel Hill! If you want a superb place to stay, try the Carolina Inn. There is no place better and you don't need a connection to the University, except graduation week.
