Journalism School Hackathon at UNC Housing & Transportation Information

Hackathon Logo

Housing Choices:

Hackathon housing includes affordable on-campus housing in  Lewis Hall  (single or double) room or nearby hotels.  Parking on campus is limited and tightly controlled so plan on walking a bit from the parking area if you will have a car with you.

Transportation Logistics:

If you are flying you will want to fly to Raleigh-Durham International Airport and either rent a car or take public transportation to UNC.

  • RDU to UNC by bus: The bus trip from RDU to UNC takes about 1 hour and requires cash payment ($2.50 per trip).
  • By taxi: Taxi service is available at both RDU terminals. With tip, a taxi trip to UNC costs about $45.
  • Rental cars:  RDU has seven rental car agencies.
