Carson Newman University has a variety of housing options ranging from traditional (dorm style) housing to apartment living. First year students are required to live in one of our First Year Experience residence halls, while returning students and transfer students may request to live elsewhere. All of our residence halls include laundry facilities, study rooms, and community TV rooms, and most include community kitchens.
