If you are interested in staying on-campus at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, single dorm rooms will be available with a shared bath. This option available for reservation until May 1st.
Interested in on-campus lodging?
Sign up for on-campus lodging with UNC Asheville. Single rooms are available in a suite, and share a bathroom with one other room. If you would like linens provided, they include a pillow, twin XL sheet set, blanket, and towel for use during your stay. Or, you can save a little money and bring some from home!
We recommend booking any other accommodations early. There are a lot of charming places to stay in Asheville on AirBnB. ExploreAsheville.com also has an excellent listing of hotels, cabins, campgrounds, and bed and breakfasts.
The Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) is the closest airport to the event. UNC Asheville is a little over 16 miles from the airport, but rental cars, Uber, Lyft, taxis, and other services are available in the area. The AVL airport site includes a list of popular transportation providers.

After our first day of learning and listening, it's time for a festive gathering with our parrot friends, special guest speakers, and a delicious array of Brazilian food and spirits. Vegetarian options are available too.
The Brasilia Churrasco Steakhouse has given us most of the restaurant to use. It will be a casual occasion. You can mingle, or sit down and eat. Everyone is responsible for their own tabs.
The closest parking is the College Street Parking Deck, located at 164 College Street. It is a couple of blocks away.
