How To Arrange a Visit

Register: It is best if we have at least one week notice so that we can plan the best use of your time during your visit. While it is possible to visit with less notice, we may not be able to schedule everything you would like to see and do.

Travel: Get to campus by flying into the Asheville Regional Airport, driving (or biking!), or riding Greyhound Busline. You can find us on your phone or GPS at 701 Warren Wilson Road, Swannanoa NC.

Accommodations: The Asheville area is a prime tourist destination with no shortage of exciting venues for you to enjoy. Explore options for accommodations (we strongly recommend making reservations in advance) and dine at our excellent independent restaurants. If you wish to stay close to the College, then look for lodging options in East Asheville or Black Mountain.

Overnight with a Student Host: High school seniors interested in experiencing an overnight stay at the College may be hosted by a student. If we cannot find a host for you, then you should feel comfortable on your own—our campus is very friendly with plenty to do, and the dorms are centrally located. Plan to be here by 4:00pm to meet your host around 4:30 for dinner. If you are spending the night in a dorm room, bring a sleeping bag and expect to sleep on the floor.

Let us help: Feel free to call us at 800.934.3536 if you have any questions, and be sure to register before you reserve airline tickets or hotel accommodations. If you must cancel your visit, or if you are running late, please call (800.934.3536). Rescheduling a visit is no problem.
