Housing

More than just a room – a community where you belong.

Living on Gardner-Webb University’s campus is a positive experience. The Residence Hall is more than just a room with a bed and a desk; it is a vibrant living and learning community that can define your college experience. Housing on the Gardner-Webb campus is divided into residence halls and apartments both of which offer an array of services, lounges and wireless connectivity, co-curricular activities, and dining options. A student’s academic and social lives are significantly shaped by living on campus. Recent studies show that resident students transition more smoothly into campus life and graduate more quickly than non resident students   This positive environment is most successful when each resident participates in his or her housing community.
