The Reuter Center, headquarters for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UNC Asheville, opened its doors in the summer of 2003 after a five year planning, fundraising, and building campaign. It is located on the north side of the UNC Asheville campus on a hill overlooking the campus.
The two-story, glass atrium Reuter Center includes four classrooms equipped with multimedia capability, an art studio classroom, multipurpose room (also equipped for multimedia use) that seats about 200, catering kitchen, take-out cafe, two commons areas, restrooms on both floors, a large outdoor terrace area, and on-grade parking on both levels for a total of 129 cars. Space in the Reuter Center is available to the campus and the public organizations when not in use. During the fall, winter, and spring terms the Reuter Café serves simple lunches and beverages.
