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 five buildings will feature four-, five- and six-bed configurations, with laundry rooms on site and full kitchens in each apartment. The sixth building, Chestnut Hall, located closest to University Heights, will have a multipurpose room/visitors center and a fitness room. 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 offers streaming IPTV, with a Roku stick supplied to each unit for optimal streaming experience. Students are able to access Hulu, Netflix, and other streaming tv with the Roku stick.
- More project funding was dedicated toward wifi infrastructure, making the wifi coverage at The Woods one of the strongest on campus. In addition to multiple interior/exterior wifi access points, each unit offers 2 hard-wired internet ports in the apartment living room.
- With each unit offering a full-size kitchen, with full-size appliances, no meal plan is required; however, students have the option to purchase either a residential or a block meal plan, should they so desire. Because each kitchen is equipped with a full-size refrigerator, stove, and microwave, microfridges will not be in the units.
