Quick Tips for Living Off-Campus

  • In Chapel Hill, only 4 unrelated persons can live in a single family dwelling. You should never be sleeping in a space not designed as a bedroom. A single-family house bedroom should always have 2 points of egress (a door and window that opens). 
  • Only park in designated spaces. In the Northside and Pine Knolls neighborhoods, you can only have 4 cars on your property. You can never park in your lawn (you must park in a designated parking lot). Many neighborhoods require permits for on-street parking.
