Aspen Hall Room

Aspen Hall Common Area

UNC Asheville’s first apartment-style housing for upperclass students, increases the available on-campus living options by almost 300-beds. Designed to foster community, the six buildings feature four-, five- and six-bed configurations, with laundry rooms on site and full kitchens in each apartment. The sixth building, Chestnut Hall, is located along University Heights and includes the Donna and David Bailey Welcome Center, a fitness room, and an apartment for The Woods community director. The names of the individual buildings are namesakes of North Carolina native trees: Aspen Hall, Beech Hall, Cedar Hall, Chestnut Hall, Magnolia Hall, and Willow Hall.

  • The Woods offer streaming IPTV, with a Roku stick supplied to each unit for optimal streaming experience. Students can access Hulu, Netflix, and other streaming TV with the Roku stick.
  • In addition to multiple interior/exterior WiFi access points, each unit includes two hard-wired internet ports in the apartment living room.
  • With each unit offering a full-size kitchen with full-size appliances, no meal plans are required; however, students do have the option to purchase a block meal plan. Because each kitchen is equipped with a full-size refrigerator, stove, and microwave, micro-fridges do not come with the units.
