UNC Asheville is consistently recognized as a best value in college education. As North Carolina’s designated public liberal arts university, we offer a high-quality undergraduate education at less than half the cost of private colleges. As part of the renowned University of North Carolina System, we focus on academic excellence, but our unique place in Asheville, our small classes, and our close-knit campus mean that your student will still have a one-of-a-kind experience.
That experience starts on campus, so we invite you to visit with your future Bulldog to get a taste of everything UNC Asheville has to offer—from our academic and fitness facilities to our residence halls and dining hall. Get to know the many resources on campus that will be available to your student, from the health and counseling center to campus safety. You’ll see that we care about the wellbeing of our students, and we understand that parents and families are vital to helping students thrive here.
We even make sure that you have a reason to visit your student during one of our favorite seasons—so mark your calendar for Family Weekend next fall.
If you are just starting out as the parent of a future Bulldog, we can help you find your way here.
