Classes in the Business Aerospace building, studying at the James E. Walker library, working out at the Recreation Center, attending football games at the stadium - your academic and student life revolves around the campus.
Living on campus places you at the center of the university community, ready for both academic and co-curricular activities. Most students find that MTSU residence halls or apartments are the right choice, and they become part of a vital living-learning community, and make friendships that will last for years. Research indicates that living on campus is one of the strongest influences on successful completion of an undergraduate degree.
More than 3000 students and families make their homes in 16 residence halls and apartments. While each living area is unique, each supports academic excellence. Professional staff and student leaders live and work in each area, coordinating services and programs that produce contented individuals. Computing facilities, student leadership training, recreational activities, referrals to academic support services, and a listening ear are just a few of the benefits of living on campus.
