Residential Education, Housing & Student Life Operations  


On Campus Housing

Living on campus puts you right in the middle of your Bulldog community! You will be a stone's throw from Highsmith Union, the Dining Hall, Ramsey Library, the Student Recreation Center, the Sherrill Center, and of course your classes!  

Aside from the convenience of living on campus, our residence halls offer lots of amenities to make your home at UNC Asheville complete -- comfortable rooms, community space, expanded basic cable, direct and wireless internet, inclusive laundry, kitchen and lounge facilities, and computer labs.

Each residence hall provides a unique on campus living experience.  Numerous programs and activities are presented throughout the semester by our residential education staff. In addition, our Resident Student Association, together with our Hall Councils provide leadership and involvment opportunities - as well as programs and activities for all residential students.
