2019 Undergraduate

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: $120, book by 3/11 , Marriott Courtyard, $129 (includes 1 free upgrade per team to a suite). There may be houses available on AirBnB, too.
