High Rise Hall
High Rise is the largest men’s dorm on campus.
Renovated in the summer of 2015, High Rise is Lipscomb's largest residence hall and is located just a few steps from Allen Arena. It has eight floors and houses 375 male residents. Each floor has two shared bathrooms with showers.
High Rise has a community kitchen, several TV lounge areas, a vending machine, pool table, ping pong table and foosball table. The first floor has a laundry room with 12 washers and dryers that students can use for free (but bring your own detergent).
All rooms are double occupancy and approximately 17’ x 10.6' in size.
Windows are 38” W x 55” L. Each room comes with blinds, but some choose to add a curtain. A tension rod for curtains works best. Rooms ending in 09, 10, 16, 17, 27, 28, 34, 35 have two windows (except 317 and 327).
Each student will have a:
- Twin bed with XL mattress, 80” clearance underneath bed that can be set to multiple heights (lofting kits available)
- Wardrobe (36” W x 79” H x 22” D)
- Dresser (36” W x 30.5” H x 22” D)
- Bookshelf (30” W x 30” H x 12” D)
- Desk (42” W x 30” H x 22” D) with chair
- Talk to your roommate about who will bring the refrigerator, microwave, TV and any other large chairs or futon type furniture.
- Command strips work well on the block walls for hanging items.
- If you would like carpet in your room, we recommend an 8'x10' carpet or rug as opposed to a carpet that fits the full room.
