Housing & Residence Life


Emory & Henry College is considered a Residential Campus which means we require all students to live on-campus while attending the College. 

The historic campus maintains the scenic beauty of Central Appalachia but gives convenient access to the region’s activities and culture. On-campus residents find there are always friends and activities to engage in. The E&H campus features a variety of residence halls with co-ed, single-gender, and gender-inclusive accommodations. Residence halls feature Resident Advisors to assist students as they acclimate to their new surroundings. The Office of Housing and Residence Life website hopes to offer you an array of information to prepare students for their arrival to campus. 

Students who are interested in living off-campus must submit an Off-Campus Housing Application and be approved by the Office of Housing and Residence Life. All applications are due by February 1st and must be completed annually. To learn more about living off-campus, please see details here

For any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach our team at housing@ehc.edu.
