I thoroughly enjoy my time looking around the University the facilities are excellent. The fact that you could jump on and off buses to get around free is a great idea.

We visited the campus and found it lovely. The location is in downtown of Chapel Hill, the place looks safe during the day but at night we noticed many beggars and homeless. We didn't feel safe.

I am gluten intolerant and was given info on places to eat, not only restaurants but also grocery stores that I could purchase and keep food in my room, the refrigerator really came in handy. Thanks Charles, Tony and Tamika

Happened to be in the Raleigh/Durham area over the New Year's holiday. The Tarheel women were playing the University of Maine team, and being from Maine, we could not pass up the chance to go to the game. The experience was the best. Not only was the game really exciting (buzzer beating three pointer by UNC to win) everyone at... More

Have lived here since 1969! Taught math in junior high/middle school here for many years! Very nice mixed population by race, money, education, etc. Graduated from UNC-CH with both a BA and an MA. Home to top rated athletic teams every year. The VERY BEST basketball coach lived and died here, and is still sorely missed, Coach Dean Smith, so... More

What a beautiful campus, perfect for a Sunday Stroll. Lots of green areas and an easy walk. We had lunch in Downtown Chapel Hill and then walk around the campus.

I've been lucky to visit UNC a number of times. The campus is beautiful, the school is world-renowned, the students are friendly. You can't beat a few days in Chapel Hill at UNC!

I love this campus. The old well and the Smith center are great places to be. People are very nice and helpful in giving directions or anything you need to know

A short visit to my daughter who is fortunate to be here for one year of her British university master degree, what a great campus, really well laid out, helpful staff and volunteers, my only tip is use sat nav to get you near, then ditch it and ask.

I i have had lunch many many times and dinner only a few times at the Carolina Inn over many years. Recently the dining room and bar were renovated and switched around. The bar area seems much larger. The changes seem designed to attract a young crowd. The food is fine- some innovative dishes - but best for a business... More
