You're Gonna Love Where You Live.

C ampus living 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 intramurals (a C-N staple!). There’s something for everyone and you don’t have to be an athlete to join.

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!

Housing FAQs

    How will my room be furnished?

    You can expect that every room, regardless of the residence hall, will be furnished with a bed, desk, desk chair, closet or wardrobe, and a chest of drawers.  Each room has Wi-Fi access as well as an ethernet and telephone outlet.

    We want you to feel at home while living in the residence hall so feel free to decorate your room! We simply ask that you follow the guidelines set out below:

    Drillings holes in the wall of a residence hall room is prohibited. Instead, we recommend using 3M Command Strips or a similar product. Posters, pictures, and other decorative objects may be attached to the interior surfaces of the rooms with the understanding that the resident will be held financially responsible for any resulting damages.

    All furniture assigned to a room upon check-in must remain in the room and cannot be stored in any other location. Due to the national increase of bed bugs, Carson-Newman University does not allow students to bring in used furniture or mattresses. Before purchasing additional furniture, consult with your roommate.
