Living on campus at Carson-Newman is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Faith-fueled community is the foundation of living on campus, and residence halls don’t just provide housing. This is where you’ll forge friendships that last a lifetime—friendships where you can share and grow your faith and while encouraging other Christ-followers.
While living on campus, you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in leadership positions by serving on your floor’s Residence Hall Council (RHC) or becoming a Resident Assistant (RA) or Desk Assistant. With a position in leadership in your residence hall, you’ll get to make a positive impact on other students navigating college life.
Residential life goes way beyond residence halls. You’ll have access to an entire campus recreational system that provides ample opportunity for activity and relaxation when you’re not in class or studying. The Maddox Student Activity Center (MSAC) is the hub for all things fun at C-N. Grab your friends, hit the gym, Chick-fil-A or the pool! While you’re there, make sure you sign up for our popular intramural events. There’s something for everyone !
C-N campus life has it all—friends, faith, fun and so much more. Come see for yourself! Schedule a visit to check out your future home today!
