From your home at The Cottages of Boone you’re a five-minute drive to class at Appalachian State University. If you don’t have your own car, take the AppalCart from The Cottages to Campus, or cycle there in 15 minutes.
Return home to your own cottage, where you can live alone or share with any combination of friends. You can choose to have your new home furnished, or opt for the unfurnished option to add your own personal touches. You’ll also have additional peace of mind with your own intrusion alarm.
When hunger strikes, meet housemates in the kitchen and cook up a storm - the oven, dishwasher and microwave mean you’ll find it easy to whip up your favorite meals. Then, eat on the corner couch while you watch cable TV, or perch at the desk in your room to read emails. All of the essentials like internet, water and cable TV are included in one monthly payment.
Spend your weekends watching sports in the entertainment den or join your neighbors for a game of ping pong. Surf the free Wi-Fi in the 24-hour clubhouse or stay in shape with a workout in the fitness center. Warm up with a dip in the hot tub, or see how many laps you can swim in the outdoor pool. The sauna and steam room are the perfect places to relax aching muscles.
When you have an upcoming assignment, lock yourself away in the private study rooms then reward yourself with a pilates or zumba class. Jump on a PC or Mac in the computer lab, print for free then hook your laptop up to the conference table for a group run-through.
In the evenings, choose a spot to hangout with your friends - the fire pits are a favorite for late-night snacking.
