Useful Information 

Local Overview
A town that has grown around its famous university for more than two centuries, Chapel Hill boasts a lively arts and culture scene, a planetarium and the popular Tarheels sporting teams.
Host institution
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is the country’s first public university and is reputed as one of the best universities in the world. It’s located on a beautiful, manicured campus which boasts several national historic landmarks among its buildings. The friendly campus offers a stimulating intellectual environment and celebrates diversity. Chapel Hill is in some ways the ultimate college town – it offers hundreds of clubs and organisations, success sports teams and top class academic life. Students and residents of the town are known as the Tar Heels, possibly from the Civil War when a group of North Carolina soldiers were exhorted to put tar on their heels to prevent them from running away.
Summer School students are able to apply for on-campus residence halls (Double room: USD867.00) or UNC offers recommendations of other options off-campus.
