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.

Each assigned space is fully furnished and residents may not bring extra personal furniture into their room/suite/apartment without written authorization from the Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Housing & Residence Life or designee. By prohibiting personal furniture, such as couches, futons, chairs, bean bags, etc., Housing & Residence Life is able to lessen the likelihood of infestations, bacteria, and other issues from upholstered furniture. To learn more about items permitted and prohibited in the residence halls, please review the <a href="/live/files/381-508emory-henry-college-community-living-guide" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Community Living Guide</a>.</div></aside>

It is important to note, however, that everything cannot be captured in a form and that there is no such thing as the perfect roommate. An important experience of college life is living in a community with many different people from different backgrounds, beliefs, and interests. A good rule for a successful roommate experience is to keep an open mind.</span></div></aside>
