Building Accessibility

Mobility and Physical Access of UNC Asheville Buildings

At present, UNC Asheville is still working to research and compile information about all buildings' levels of accessibility. We will continue to add and edit the information as it becomes available to us.

Below we have provided a list of the various university buildings. When a building title is selected, the webpage will automatically redirect you to the accessibility information for that specific building. If you wish to explore additional buildings and specific campus areas in more detail, simply use the interactive campus map. More information on specific parking areas and required permits, contact the Department of Transportation at transportation@unca.edu or visit the Transportation & Parking website.

Contact the Office of Academic Accessibility for further access concerns via email at academicaccess@unca.edu or visit the website for more information on campus accessibility at oaa.unca.edu.
