2018 Undergraduate
National Finals

Chapel Hill, NC

We have plenty of free parking at the event, follow signs. Or you might get the shuttle from your hotel; most have local shuttles but no airport shuttle. Lastly, Uber has been a game-changer in Chapel Hill.
There are many good options nearby at every price point. Chapel Hill is a pretty small town. Anything with a Chapel Hill address (and a shuttle if you don’t rent a car) will be pretty close. We have two discounted blocks: Aloft, $ 129/night, book by 2/28, and Marriott Courtyard, $124/night, book here by 3/5. There may be houses available on AirBnB, too.


Congratulations BYU – National Champions!
