Vulnerable Populations

We have a number of appointment times that are open to serve vulnerable populations within our campus community. Vulnerable populations include but are not limited to: those who are immunocompromised, with underlying medical conditions, ages 50 and older, underinsured, socioeconomically disadvantaged, and racial and ethnic minorities. We ask that only vulnerable members of the campus community sign up for sessions designated for vulnerable populations.

Outdoor Track and Intramural Fields

The Karl Straus Track will have limited access from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m. each morning for both UNC Asheville and the broader Asheville community.  After 10 a.m., the track will be closed to the public.  UNC Asheville Outdoor fields are not available for public use at any time.  This public schedule will allow the university to move its campus recreation and some intercollegiate athletic operations outdoors throughout the day.

UNC Asheville appreciates the community’s understanding and cooperation during this time.
