Residence Halls

Living on the Trevecca campus puts you at the center of daily university life. You're close to your classes, professors, and academic resources such as the library and multiple computer labs. You're connected to campus life, activities and events. Best of all, you don't have to worry about paying utility bills, buying furniture or driving to class.

As a resident, not only are you at the center of campus life, you are also part of an exciting Christian community. In fact, your residence hall is a small community in itself, and as a member, you learn how to get along with other students and work together as a team. You become involved with new ideas, engage in stimulating conversation and learn about other people.

Smart living is living on campus. It's the best of everything in one affordable package - uncomplicated living that's also exciting and fulfilling! It's the difference between being immersed in a total university experience or just being a part of it.
