Granville Towers

The Workshop partners with Granville Towers, a private air-conditioned residence hall located a short walk from the Department of Music’s facilities and downtown Chapel Hill. Participants are housed in suites, with two rooms sharing a common bath area. Fee amounts are given in the fees section of this site. The fees for Granville Towers include:

  • accommodations Sunday night through Friday night, with a Saturday morning departure;
  • parking for the week in the Granville Towers parking lot.

Non-performing family members or guests are welcome to accompany you in the dorm, where they will feel comfortable walking to the attractions on campus as well as shopping and dining on Chapel Hill’s Franklin Street. To reserve a room, indicate your preference (single or double occupancy) on your application. To guarantee accommodations, be sure we receive your payment by the deadline given on the application.

Other Lodging Options

Recent participants have been successful booking accommodations through AirBnB or area hotels. The Carolina Inn, AC Hotel Chapel Hill and the Graduate Hotel Chapel Hill are within walking distance. The Chapel Hill/Carrboro Chamber of Commerce has a substantial list of hotels and other resources on their web site.


For commuters, a weekly pass for parking at Granville Towers is available for a fee. Please see our fees section for the actual cost. If you would like to purchase a commuter pass, please indicate this on your application.


There are many dining options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in close proximity to the Music Department. Information about a meal plan will be posted if available.
