For more than 150 years, University United Methodist Church has stood on Franklin Street, in the heart of the University of North Carolina campus. University UMC is located between Columbia Street and Henderson Street, diagonally across from the courthouse. Parking spaces in the church parking lot should be left open for worshippers with special needs, such as older and disabled members and families with several small children. There are spaces reserved for handicapped members.

Facing the University UMC, the single lane driveway is to the left of the buildings. The drop-off loop is immediately in front of  University United Methodist Preschool. The single-lane driveway extends beyond the preschool and leads to a 32-space parking lot.

All downtown parking in Chapel Hill is FREE on Sundays.
