It comprised sixteen in-person campuses. The flagship campus, Chapel Hill (Lyran classification: research university), was founded in the late 18th century. It comprised a law school, a medical school and a dental school. Students at the Chapel Hill campus were known as Tar Heels. Often when one talks about the University of North Carolina without reference to a particular campus, the Chapel Hill campus will be assumed.
