Historical Note

Appalachian State University operated two facilities for students to use in New York City and Washington, D.C. – the Loft and The App House, respectively. As of 2011, the Loft is still in operation, though the App House ceased operation in 2003. ASU had leased property in New York between 1974 and 1997, and, in December 1997, purchased a property at 117 East 24th Street in Manhattan. Between 1974 and 2003, the App House was a leased property located near the Library of Congress in Washington. Both locales offered space and low rate lodging for Appalachian students, faculty and staff attending conferences, academic meetings, fulfilling internship requirements or conducting research in the New York and Washington areas.
