Gardner-Webb University offers a variety of housing options for undergraduate students. Typically, freshman live in traditional residence halls set conveniently in the heart of campus. Located along the Quad, these residence halls offer spacious common areas, comfortable rooms, and a shared kitchen area for residents to take advantage of. All traditional residence halls come with the same basic furniture: a bed, desk, chair, a chest of drawers, and a closet with extra storage space. It’s up to you and your roommate to decide how you want to make your space feel like home and what other extras (like a mini-fridge or TV) you want to bring!
When you get the key to your room on Move-In Day, you are beginning an exciting new chapter of your life. Living on campus helps you get connected with our close-knit community, build relationships, and make memories that will last a lifetime. In order to complete your Housing Application, you must first submit your enrollment deposit. Once your deposit is received, you will be able to choose your preferred housing option via the Housing Application in WebbConnect.
The first year of college can be very challenging for new students. We recognize that students will have understandable concerns about being away from home, making new friends, and coping with the rigors of collegiate academic coursework. Guided by the best practice of creating a cohort and a common sense of identity as a foundation for success, the First Year Living Community provides students with the opportunity to attend fun and engaging programs that are designed to provide participants with opportunities to make connections with peers and become familiar with the Gardner-Webb community.
An initiative sponsored by Housing and Residence Education and the Office of Student Success, the First Year Living Community will offer an environment where first year students will live together and participate in programs that cater to their academic, social, and personal needs.
Students in living learning communities report making friends quicker and connecting with faculty, staff, and other students more easily. These programs are created to give one a shared experience around their academics and residential environment. This gives them a chance to live and learn with students of similar interests and build a supportive, fun, and vibrant community of friends!
All first-year residence halls will have a team of Resident Assistants that work to support the student experience and transition. The staff works along with the Housing and Residence Life to implement a series of programs that provide important resources, involvement and community development opportunities throughout the academic year.
