Housing and Residence Education
Living on campus is an important element of the Gardner-Webb University experience. As such, Housing and Residence Education strives to foster an environment that encourages academic success, personal growth and spiritual development. Gardner-Webb University sets high community and academic standards, which challenge students to invest in their education. Challenge and support within a Christian environment encourages students to make educated decisions, be reflective of their experience and mindful of their impact on others. The Housing and Residence Education Department aims to make each residential facility a place where students interact with a variety of people in a comfortable and safe environment. The Housing and Residence Education Department will intentionally encourage students to learn more about whom they are and the life skills that will provide a base for a successful future.

Housing & Residence Education endorses the use of Energy Star rated appliances such as MicroFridge. This is a special refrigerator/freezer and microwave oven combination appliance that is available to Gardner-Webb University students through Standards for Living. See their website to learn more about how you may rent or purchase a MicroFridge and have it delivered to your room just prior to your arrival on campus in the fall.
To purchase an approved loft kit for your residence hall room in Decker, Royster, Stroup, or the University Commons Suites, please visit our Campus Shop.
Specially-sized sheets, blankets and comforters are necessary in some of the residence halls on the Gardner-Webb University campus. These residence halls have extra-long mattresses, which are more than 76 inches long, so that all students will be as comfortable as possible. That's why Gardner-Webb University has been offering the Residence Hall Linens Program for 18 years.
We want to make sure every student has the right XL bedding for move-in. Guaranteed to last until graduation, our wide selection of custom-sized linens is certain to fit every bed on campus. In addition, we also provide a variety of other residence hall room must haves, including extra-long comforters, extra-long mattress pads, extra-long thermal blankets, pillows, storage solutions and anything else you will need.
