Campus Closure and Trails Update, Summer Programming and Conferences


Buncombe County has issued a "Stay Home - Stay Safe" order that went into effect March 26 at 8 p.m. through 6 a.m. on April 9.


In response to the county's declaration, Warren Wilson College has closed down the College trail system to the community and all employees who do not reside on campus. 


Our primary obligation right now is to protect the health and well-being of staff and students who have stayed on to maintain the essential functions of the College, as well as our campus residents. At this point, we do not know how long the restriction will last.


In addition, all summer programming and conferences have been canceled through June 30. Decisions regarding The Swannanoa Gathering and other camps/events after June 30 have not been finalized at this time.


St. Clair Guest House is currently closed through the end of the semester. For more information about St. Clair Guest House, visit
