Anyways I was looking at a couple of places in Carrboro and some closer to Durham. From what I understand Durham is a little cheaper in price than Chapel Hill so I might be closer to Duke than UNC. I have no stake in the rivalry yet =), I am just trying to find a good place to live so any help would be nice.
These are the apartments that I visited last week: Glen Lennox, Laurel Ridge, The Villages at Chapel Hill, and The Bridges at Chapel Hill.
I know these are closer to UNC but if anyone has information on any of them I would greatly appreciate it, and if anyone has any questions on these I will answer what I can.
OK, but I may end up at Duke, but I'm a Tarheel through and through. Also, I've lived in the area for 12 years, so I'll try to help out. I'll post this in the UNC 2012 thread, too.
Here's a map (LinkRemoved) of some complexes compiled in a pdf that I found from the UNC pharmacology program website. It's a good guideline for some graduate housing options, and the areas highlighted there are all pretty decent. You can look for more stuff in those general areas. Get much closer to campus, and you'll end up in undergrad territory. There are also A LOT of duplexes, townhouses, and smaller apartment complexes that are just right for graduate students. The only problem is that you kinda have to go to them in order to check them out. I'd look at local newspaper ads (online, see links below) for stuff in the area.
