Living Here

UNC is more than just a great place to work, it’s located in a particularly wonderful place to live. Known as the “Southern Part of Heaven,” Chapel Hill offers the best of both small town and city living, with an easy pace, short commutes, affordable cost of living and a thriving economy. Whether your recreational interests follow top-ranked sports teams, five-star dining options, world-class performing arts, or outdoor adventures, Chapel Hill is routinely ranked as one of the best places in America to call home.

A few miles away are the cities of Raleigh and Durham, which combine to form the Research Triangle. In addition to UNC, several other top-tier universities, research organizations, and forward-thinking companies are located here, making the Triangle a dynamic hub of innovation, technology, healthcare and entrepreneurship.

Located in the center of the state, we are ideally situated approximately three hours from the coast and the mountains. In between, there are plenty of places that make great day trips. Read about our town, its history and traditions, and discover why we love it here. And though you’ll never want to leave, when you need to fly the top-ranked Raleigh-Durham (RDU) International Airport is less than 20 miles from the medical campus.
