Much of what people call “college life” could just as easily be called “campus life.” Students living in MTSU’s residence halls, apartment buildings, and houses live just minutes from classes and extracurricular activities.

On-campus housing gives students a taste of independent living without the commute to and from campus and makes it easy to get involved in clubs, organizations, leadership programs, and social groups. Students living on campus can become part of a vital learning community and make lasting friendships.


On-campus living options include traditional halls with shared community baths, exterior-entry buildings with quad baths, and apartments (private one-bedroom, one-bedroom shared, two-bedroom shared, four-person shared/private bedroom, and family apartments). Communities range in size from fewer than 100 to more than 400 residents. Staff members at 24-hour reception desks provide information and security assistance. Lounges and lobbies are designed for conversation, studying, and recreation. All residence hall rooms and apartments are air conditioned and include utilities and free laundry. With wireless and Ethernet internet access, you’re as connected to the world as you want to be.

Moving on up

First-year students may apply to live in an on-campus apartment, but apartment living is primarily for upper-class students, returning residents, and students with families.

Scarlett Commons features four-bedroom/two-bathroom apartments with full kitchens and living rooms. Residents have private bedrooms and share bathrooms.

Womack Lane Apartments comprise 192 one- and two-bedroom units with areas designated for single students and families. All single-resident apartments are furnished. Private, one-bedroom apartments are ideal for graduate students and nontraditional students over age 22 but are not restricted to those students.

Scarlett Commons and Womack Lane residents enjoy reserved parking.
