Residence Life

Union University recognizes and is fully committed to the value of the educational experiences—spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally—which occur within the on-campus residential environment. Therefore, all students who have not earned 86 credits by the beginning of the academic year are required to live in the residence complexes for the full academic year, unless exception is granted by the Director of Residence Life or Appeals Committee. Exceptions include students living with parents/guardians, those who are married and students who have medical problems requiring off campus residency. All residential students are required to sign a housing contract for the full academic year. For information on Residence Life community values, philosophy, costs, family housing, and general procedures please refer to the Campus Life Handbook.

Single student housing is arranged in three residence complexes. Student apartments include four private bedrooms and a kitchen. The Heritage Residence Complex and the Ayers and Hope Quads primarily house new students/freshmen. The McAfee Commons building in the Heritage Complex houses the Residence Director and Assistant Resident Director and provides facilities for lounge areas, laundry and recreation. The Grace, Hurt and Watters Quads house upperclassmen and a limited number of freshmen. The Bowld Student Commons Building, completed Spring 2010, houses male and female residence directors for The Quads. The Commons provides additional lounge and recreation space.

Graduate and family housing is located in the Warmath Apartments, north of single-student housing. The complex consists of 16 two-bedroom apartments.
