In areas between South Road and Manning Drive, Center Campus is a transition zone with a blend of characteristics of Campus North and Campus South. It has similar topographic and ecological considerations to Campus South. The density and intensity of uses in this area—which include UNC Hospitals and a cluster of Athletics and Recreation facilities – have created mature, developed areas in this area that have shared characteristics to Campus North. South Road, the iconic Bell Tower and adjacent Genome Sciences Building, Stone Cultural Center, and Coker academic buildings exhibit the scale and character of Campus North. Rams Head Center and residence halls to the east are influenced by the topography of Campus South and define open space and connectivity modeled after Campus North. Uses such as Kenan Stadium, UNC Hospitals, and recreation uses to the east exhibit the broader scale and larger open spaces of Campus South and represent a variety of architectural styles.
