Merritt Mill

Location is great, besides the rather rowdy neighbors on S. Merritt Mill road. During daylight, the walk to/from Franklin Street is very easy. At night, I do not feel comfortable making this walk.

Two bedrooms are small, one big. Very little storage area. Ample parking.

About Franklin Street

Franklin Street is Chapel Hill's hub for UNC students, with plenty of options for nightlife and dining. As such, the area tends to be a bit noisier and a lot more crowded than other neighborhoods around Chapel Hill but you won't find a more happening spot. Popular music venues include The Station, L...

Franklin Street Reviews

Living near Franklin Street is amazing! It allows you to walk to restaurants/bars and making it feel like a college town. If you like walking to things, this is the place to be!
All the bars and restaurants are right here, it's a close walk to campus, and also to Carborro.
Walking distance to all bars and restaurants, living on the west end also walkable to Carrboro

10 minute drive to school and grocery

Borders a rough neighborhood behind Rosemary Street so must always keep doors locked and never walk home alone.

Depending on where you live it can be noisy with undergrads - steer clear of The Warehouse Apartments and Chancellor Square that are next to Bobs on either side.
I've loved that I'm walking distance to everything on Franklin Street and that I've been able to engage with more of the greater UNC campus than my peers in the MBA program.
Walkable to most restaurants and bars. Not on Franklin St, so not as much noise but Rosemary St. can still be pretty busy.
Perfect if you want great access to bar/restaurants and to be around other students
Close to everything! Bus line, downtown restaurants and bars, grocery stores.
Best area of chapel hill with restaurants, bars, lots going on
