Carson-Newman University plans to build residence hall on its Jefferson City, Tenn., campus

Feb. 9, 2023
The university says the facility will provide living space for 524 students.

Carson-Newman University in the Jefferson City, Tenn., has announced plans to build a residence hall that it says will be the largest construction project in the university’s 172-year history.

The project, covering more than 110,000 square feet, will consist of twin living facilities that will house 524 beds. The buildings will be connected by a two-story “Community Connector.”

Incorporating feedback from students, Carson-Newman developed plans to include more places to study, laundry on every floor of every wing, and a greater variety of food options.

Security features include key-card access and camera surveillance. A resident assistant will live on each floor, and a residence director will live on site.

Groundbreaking for the residence hall is scheduled for the spring; the goal is for students to move into the housing in August 2024.

Carson-Newman is partnering with University Housing Solutions to design and build the residence hall.
