Off-Campus Housing

We believe your Lipscomb community experience is most engaging when you live on campus, so we require our freshmen, sophomores and juniors to do so. Seniors and students living at home with their parents or with a spouse in the Nashville area are not included in this requirement. You can also gain approval to live off campus if you meet one of these stipulations:

  • 90 hours earned prior to the beginning of the stated term
  • 21 years of age
  • Enrolled in fewer than nine hours

Please note that these are the only exceptions to living off campus. Any Lipscomb financial gift or grant aid you receive correlates to our campus living policy. Moving off campus can result in a reduction of awards, so please contact Financial Aid at 615.966.1791 to learn more.

Off-Campus Application

It's best to gain approval from the The Office of Residence Life before entering into a financial or legal agreement off campus. Since approvals don't roll over year after year, be sure to apply to live off campus every spring before class registration so no automatic Residence Life hold hits your account. Contact us at housing@lipscomb.edu or at 615.966.6062 or 800.333.4358, extension 6062 for more details.
