Signing Up for Housing

Once you've signed up for orientation and paid your enrollment fee, you can pay your housing fee. Make sure to do this no later than May 1. 

While the enrollment fee saves your place in Lipscomb’s incoming class and allows you to register for New Student Orientation, the housing fee lets you reserve your dorm room. Access your Bison Portal to pay this fee. 

The fees are as follows:

  • Freshman Enrollment Fee $260
  • Transfer Enrollment Fee $215
  • Housing Fee $200

Once you’ve paid your enrollment fee and housing fee you will receive instructions about picking a roommate within your assigned housing.

If a parent or other individual is helping pay your bill, add them as an authorized user on Nelnet. Being an authorized user on Nelnet is the only way for parents to receive billing statements from the Business Office. To add an authorized user, log into CNS Student Portal>My Finances>Nelnet Payment/Plans>Launch Nelnet>Add an Authorized Party.

If you are a first-time freshman or a transfer student under the age of 21, your college experience will begin with QuestWeek in August. Everyone in your class will arrive on campus a week before the first day of classes to begin your college experience together. QuestWeek is required for all freshmen and all transfers under 21. The Quest Team will keep you busy with games, field trips and info sessions, and your freshman seminar class will meet twice this week as well. Quest Week will be one of the best experiences of your first year.
