For more than 175 years, University United Methodist Church (University UMC) has stood on Franklin Street, in the heart of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. University UMC is located between Columbia Street and Henderson Street, diagonally across from the courthouse. Parking spaces in the church parking lot are 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 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.
