 A CAROLINA RETREAT RIGHT ON FRANKLIN STREET

Just a short walk from the scenic UNC-Chapel Hill campus, our hotel (formerly The Franklin) mixes classic style and campus spirit. Feel at home in our Carolina retreat, located right on Franklin Street.

Rekindle the spirit of your alma mater at the smartest place to stay in town. Located right on Franklin Street, Graduate Chapel Hill is in the heart of downtown and just a short walk from the UNC-Chapel Hill campus.

Guest rooms are dressed in shades of Carolina Blue, with touches of Greek Revival and nods to the region’s natural beauty. Discover elements honoring campus icons and notable Tar Heels, including the Old Well, Mia Hamm and His Airness, #23.

In the lobby, more classic blues mingle with views of the coast while the Front Desk forever flashes that iconic score from 1982. Stop by Trophy Room, our signature restaurant, for a local brew and tasty bites.

Whether you’re in town to cheer on the Tar Heels or just stopping by for the weekend, we look forward to welcoming you to Graduate Chapel Hill.
