For the fall semester, the residence halls open at 8:30 A.M. on the Friday before registration day. Spring semester check-in will be announced at a later time. Students need to check in between the hours of 8:30 A.M. and 10:00 P.M. If you must arrive late, please notify the Office of Admissions.
You will need to bring your health insurance information in order to check-in at the residence hall. At check-in, you will be asked to read and sign a housing contract and a room damage report.
Students need to provide the following:
- $200 Enrollment Deposit: This amount is paid to the Office of Admissions at the time of application and serves to reserve a space in University housing for you.
- Your own linens--sheets, pillow, blanket, bedspread, towels, and washcloths. (See special sizing of mattresses elsewhere in this site.)
- Bathroom/cleaning supplies--You will need to provide cleaning supplies* (i.e., broom, small mop, cleanser, glass cleaner, toilet brush, bleach, etc.). The University provides toilet paper.
Students may wish to provide the following:
- Computer (The University supplies one computer line and jack to each room.)
- Alarm clock or clock radio
- Trash can
- Drapes/curtains and shower curtain (mini-blinds on windows are supplied).
- Bed lamp
- Fan (mostly for white noise)
- Carpet (Carpet can be laid but not glued or taped down.)
- Vacuum cleaner (Several vacuum cleaners are available for use in the residence halls, if you choose to have carpet in your room. However, you may choose to provide your own vacuum cleaner.)
* You may want to discuss these items with your roommate(s).
All non-married students under the age of 23 at the time of registration, who are enrolled for six or more credit hours per semester and do not live at home, are required to live in college residence halls and participate in the board plan. Exceptions to this policy are made for unusual cases only. Single students may qualify for an exception based on the following criteria:
- Living at home with parents in the Nashville area
- Living with mature relatives other than parents
- Approved rent-free housing when job provides it as a condition of employment
Application for exception should be made through the Office of Student Development well in advance to the start of the semester. The residency requirement does not apply to students enrolled for summer school courses.
Students who are enrolled for five or less credit hours, are 23 years of age or older, have a previous baccalaureate degree, have been previously married, or have children who desire to live in residence halls may do so subject to permission from the Office of Student Development. For more information contact the Office of Student Development by e-mail or by calling 615-248-1398.
Cooking in Benson, Georgia, Johnson and Tennessee Residence Halls is limited to the following appliances:
- hot pots
- popcorn poppers
- coffee pots
- refrigerators (not to exceed 6.0 cubic feet)
- microwave (900 watts or less)
A microwave is available in each of the main residence halls for everyone’s convenience.
The MicroFridge is a combination refrigerator/freezer and microwave oven that is designed for today’s student. It holds, stores, and prepares all the beverages, frozen foods, and microwave products that one regularly enjoys at home but in the compact space that you call "home" when you are away at school. The MicroFridge design is approved for several reasons: it requires only a single plug and automatically cuts off power to the refrigerator/freezer whenever the microwave is turned on so that it never draws more than 10 amps or overloads a circuit. The University leases these units on a first-come/first-served basis at a cost of $150 per year. Lease agreements are available through the Office of Student Development, 615-248-1245.

Decorating Your Room
You probably have a vision in your mind about how your room will look, but the first time you walk in, the room will not match the vision. With bare walls, stripped beds and no floor coverings or personal touches, the room may appear quite sterile.
However, as you add your personal effects, the room will quickly begin to feel more like home. As you get to know each another, you will put up posters and add items that reflect your common interests. Before long, the room will really be yours.
It is a good idea for you to call or write your roommate in order to discuss what to bring. This contact and planning will help you avoid ending up with two televisions and no carpet, or two refrigerators and no radio. Some students even discuss color schemes and coordinate their bedspreads while others decide to just let the room evolve as they get to know each other.
Room Assignment Process
One of the most anticipated events for a college student is finding out who your roommate will be and then meeting that person for the first time. All new students, living on or off campus, MUST provide residency information to the Office of Student Development. New students who have been admitted to Trevecca Nazarene University and paid their $200 Enrollment Deposit will be eligible to complete the online Residential Information. Please refer to this guide for additional help when signing up for a room. If you have any questions about residency, please email the Office of Student Development email@example.com.
