Franklin Street

Campus Hub for UNC
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, Local 506, and Cat's Cradle.

Although the area predominantly consists of UNC students, it's also home to some young families and young professionals working around Chapel Hill. If you're the type of person who likes to be in the epicenter of a city's nightlife, Franklin Street is the spot.

Franklin Street — 8.3/10 Rating (based on 19 neighborhood reviews)
The house is on a dead-end street with a bunch of other rental homes. Almost the entire street is occupied with undergrads attending UNC. It can get a little noisy some nights due to parties, but that only happens maybe once a month. If you walk to the end of the dead end street, there's a small path that pops out right next to Carolina Ale House on Franklin Street.

Franklin Street isn't wild unless you make it wild. Living half a block away, I rarely hear parties or evening noise.

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.
