Party Registration & Resources

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Town of Chapel Hill encourage students to “Party, Police Free.”

Students who register and party responsibly can have a great time, while giving neighbors and police greater peace of mind and a more efficient response option should things get out of control.

 Students can register their Friday or Saturday night parties online and then complete the registration in person at the Office of Community Involvement, Granville Towers South, Suite 2100. If the Chapel Hill Police Department receives a noise complaint about a registered gathering, the host will then receive one courtesy phone call or text message, giving them 20 minutes to quiet or disband the event. Police will only visit the party if a second complaint is received after the 20-minute grace period, helping the police to avoid unnecessary visits and to provide students the opportunity to avoid a fine.

Students who register their parties will also receive “party smart” tips on how to party safely and responsibly. These tips include: letting their neighbors know about the party beforehand, knowing who is on the guest list, designating party monitors and making sure guests have a safe way to get home.
