Walk for 20 minutes along tree-lined Hillsborough Street to get to North Carolina State University, or take an eight-minute bus ride from the stop just outside. On weekends, use the same bus to explore the highlights of the city center, or make the most of 1301 Hillsborough’s on-site parking and take your car. Learn how the Tar Heel State got its name at the North Carolina Museum of History, or watch a show at Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts.
After a long day, come home to your fully furnished apartment to recharge your batteries. Kick off your shoes and dump your bags in your bedroom, then go through to the lounge and spend a moment relaxing in front of your favorite TV shows. When you’re ready, spread your books out on your desk and get started on your studies in peace. With all-inclusive utilities, you can spend as much time as you like on the internet bouncing ideas off your classmates.
When you’re finished, gather your flatmates and go on a group grocery run to Harris Teeter, a major supermarket just 13 minutes away by bus. Cook up a storm in your apartment kitchen, then sit down at the dining table and catch up with your friends while you eat. When you feel like a night out, you’re spoiled for choice with great local restaurants. Get ready in your private bathroom and head to P.G. Werth’s for a taste of the South, or to Goodnights Comedy Club for dinner and a show.
