Make Campus Your Home
We’re 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.
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. All our residential options include furniture, cable, laundry access, wifi and meal plans.
The mission of Office of Residence Life is to provide students an on campus community conducive to providing a nurturing environment supporting their basic needs, while assisting with social and personal individualized growth. Members of the residence life staff at Cumberland University will:

Living on campus provides an experience that is more than just a place to sleep, study and watch TV. It is a place where students come and are challenged and changed.
