Using the Library: Building Guide

Our Building

library steps

Located at the heart of the UNC Asheville campus, our building can be found on the university quadrangle. The library is oriented toward Mount Pisgah, which can be viewed in the distance from the library steps. Visiting the library calls to mind the university motto, "Levo Oculos Meos In Montes" / "I Lift My Eyes to the Mountains."  

Inside are spaces designed for individual and group study, respectively, as well as collections, help desks and student services offices like The Writing Center and OneStop.
