Sherrill Center/Kimmel Arena

The Wilma M. Sherrill Center is a multipurpose building, much like most other buildings on campus. It is designed to provide a venue for a wide range of activities, from classes, research and workouts to concerts, health fairs and basketball games.

In addition to housing the academic programs of the Department of Health and Wellness, the building is the home of the N.C. Center for Health & Wellness, a statewide hub for the promotion of healthy living through the prevention of disease. The Sherril Center houses the 3,000-seet Kimmel Arena, which is the home court for UNC Asheville’s men’s and women’s basketball teams, campus ceremonies, conventions and live perfomances.
