Living On Campus

Living on Campus

What is the difference between going to college and experiencing college? Living on campus! When campus is your home, you can take advantage of being in the middle of everything! Make friends, get involved in student organizations, attend campus events, and experience more!

Visit the Department of Housing and Residence Life to learn about on-campus housing, including living-learning communities!

Housing assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis depending on when a student submits the $100 housing deposit. Complete the housing application online and contact the Department of Housing and Residence Life at or 423-439-4446 with questions.

Your learning shouldn’t stop when you close the textbook and walk out of the classroom. College is also about learning about yourself! Campus engagement enriches your social, cultural, and personal development; it hones leadership skills and builds lasting, lifelong friendships. There are more than 200 student organizations for you to choose from, as well as opportunities in athletics, Greek life, volunteering, and more!
