76% of BBSP students ride the bus to campus. Chapel Hill Transit offers free buses to campus from Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and Park-and-Ride lots. Check out more information on the UNC Transit website to see where bus lines run in our area.
Another 12% of students ride a bike to campus. In fact, UNC has been recognized as a silver-level bicycle-friendly university. Learn more about registering your bike and the rewards for cyclists on the UNC Bike website.
Only about 4% of students park in an on-campus parking lot. There is a lottery system for student on-campus parking which will start accepting registrations in late June. Unless there is a special need, most of our students do not sign up for on-campus parking because it is expensive and we have a great bus system that you can ride for free. However, if you wanted to consider on-campus parking please make sure to read through the lottery system and parking zones on the student parking website.
UNC requires that anyone parking in an on-campus lot after 5pm on weeknights must either a) have a valid parking permit, or b) register their car for weeknight parking.
