Keeping healthy also means staying active. Campus Recreation provides a range of ways to do just that, including an indoor pool and track, weight room, intramural sports and fitness classes. UNC Asheville's 360-acre campus is just minutes away from thousands of acres of federal and state forests where students can hike, camp, kayak and rock climb with the popular Outdoor Recreation Program. Need equipment? Students can rent outdoor gear and bikes for free or just a few bucks.
Getting around campus on foot, by bike or by campus BARCS (shuttle) is easy because the campus is relatively compact. And taking in the sights and sounds of downtown is just as easy by catching a ride on the Asheville Transit buses - - free for UNC Asheville students.

UNC Asheville's Campus Police really are the "good guys."
