Living on campus is all about creating your home-away-from-home, with furnished residence hall rooms, a great variety of dining options, laundry facilities, study lounges, plenty of on-campus activities and events, and much more. Plus, your friends and classmates are your closest neighbors. Soon, you’ll be calling campus home-sweet-home.
Residence Hall rooms are furnished with single beds, dressers, chairs, window blinds and Internet connection and cable television service. The common areas include laundry facilities, computer labs, TV lounges, vending machines, and study space.
Come to campus hungry! A range of options await students and visitors, including Brown Hall's buffet-style cafeteria, which offers a healthy selection of locally grown foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with vegetarian and vegan specialities. Or you can grab quick bites and awesome pastries at Argo Tea right inside Ramsey Library. Students can avoid the "Freshman Fifteen" by looking for healthy choices, which are clearly marked at all dining facilities. And with no fast-food chain restaurants on campus, it’s easier to eat well.
Student Health Services
Want to know more about how to stay healthy on campus? Need a flu shot or think you have an ear infection? Students can visit Student Health Services for free or low-cost health care on weekdays when classes are in session. Professional mental health services also are available.
Physical Therapy and Free Injury Screening
For students, faculty and staff, Mission Rehab offers Physical Therapy and Free Injury Screens through CarePartners by appointment in the Athletic Training Room of the Justice Center. Call 828.251.6480 to set up appointments.
Keeping healthy also means staying active. Campus Recreation provides a range of ways to do just that, including an indoor pool and track, weight room, intramural sports and fitness classes. UNC Asheville's 360-acre campus is just minutes away from thousands of acres of federal and state forests where students can hike, camp, kayak and rock climb with the popular Outdoor Recreation Program. Need equipment? Students can rent outdoor gear and bikes for free or just a few bucks.
Getting around campus on foot, by bike or by campus BARCS (shuttle) is easy because the campus is relatively compact. Taking in the sights and sounds of downtown is just as easy by catching a ride on the Asheville Transit buses - free for UNC Asheville students.
