Life in Chapel Hill

Chapel Hill, and the greater Triangle area, is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live and work. Our town is bikable, walkable, eclectic, safe, affordable, diverse and green. Our students love the temperate weather and the easy access to activities in the Triangle, on the coast and in the mountains.
