The vast majority of graduate and professional students live off campus in areas in Chapel Hill, Carrboro, or Durham. Contacting current students to find their favorite apartment complexes, neighborhood, or roommates can be helpful.

Before you move, don’t forget to buy broadband!

Many local apartment complexes are on the free bus lines (Chapel Hill Transit, CHT) in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. If at all possible, we highly recommend living near a free CHT bus line, because the Park and Ride lots include fees for commuters (see Transportation section). For students living further away from campus with access to Triangle Transit Authority (TTA) buses, see the Transportation section for more information regarding the GoPass through the Commuter Alternative Plan (CAP) program.
