Housing and Residence Life

residence hall

Residence Life on a university campus can be one of the most meaningful ingredients in a college experience.  We are happy to take this opportunity to Welcome our new students to Lincoln Memorial University's residence hall community and to help prepare you for life in a residence hall. One meaningful part of a University education is the learning that comes from living with others. A good deal of adjustment occurs in the transition from high school to University and from home life to residence hall life, and sometimes even from freshman to sophomore year. LMU's Residence Life Program is designed to help you make personal, social and academic adjustments in as healthy a way as possible, and to make your living experience both educational and enjoyable.  You will meet individuals who will become lifelong friends, given the opportunity to expand your sense of community service and you will improve your leadership skills.  You can do that here at LMU!

LMU requires all full-time students under the age of 21, regardless of class ranking, live on campus unless the student is living with a parent or guardian within a 65-mile radius of campus or is married and lives with a spouse.  An application for housing or housing waiver must be completed by all applicants for admission.
