RESIDENCE LIFE 2020-2021


The Residence Life staff at Cumberland University knows that choosing to live on campus is an important decision. Nearly 500 students call CU’s campus home. Our campus features five residence halls that offer a variety of living options and experiences to support you throughout your academic career. Residential students enjoy walking to class, academic support services, dining, and athletics facilities. Choosing to live on campus offers you a traditional college experience that is allinclusive, convenient and fun. We are a small campus with a BIG community. Living on campus places you right in the middle of student life activities. It makes it easy to connect with your friends and participate in student organizations, honor societies, and interest groups. As a resident, you’ll be able to make an impact on campus as a leader and play a part in shaping the CU experience for all our students.  Inside this viewbook you will find information about our five residence halls, campus amenities, and campus services. We’ll walk you through applying for housing and how you can get prepared for move-in day. As you make many important decisions in the days ahead, we hope one of those decisions is to live on campus at CU.
