Welcome Events and Orientation

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 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. Visit the Life in Chapel Hill page for more information on housing, transportation, and other Chapel Hill resources.
Contact the University Office of Accessibility Resources and Service to discuss appropriate accommodations and resources/services as they relate to academics, residences, dining and co and extra-curricular campus activities.
University Honor Code
Review the University Honor Code: This commitment to academic integrity, ethical behavior, personal responsibility and civil discourse exemplifies the “Carolina Way”, and this commitment is codified in both the University’s Honor Code and in other University student conduct-related policies.
