Freed-Hardeman University is firmly committed to creating an excellent on-campus environment for its residential students. Because we believe that the residential experience is an invaluable component of Christian education, all students are required to live on campus unless they are over 23 years of age, have accumulated 126 credit hours, or are married. 

Female students can choose between four dormitories. Scott Hall and Dixon Halls are suite-style setup in which two bedrooms housing two students each are connected by a shared bathroom. In Bradfield Hall, there are community bathrooms on each floor that the students share. Finally, in Porter-Terry Hall the dorm rooms are set up with three bedrooms branching off of a common room with its own bathroom. 

Male students can choose between three dormitories. Benson Hall and Sewell Hall, our newest dorm, are set up suite-style, which as mentioned above is the shared bathroom connecting two rooms. Farrow Hall is set up with community bathrooms. All student dorms offer lobby space, and laundry rooms with free washers and dryers. All lobbies and dorm rooms are equipped with wireless internet access and HD cable.

Students with 90 or more hours may apply to live in campus-privileged housing. Tyler Hall (for women) and Woods-East (for men) offer apartment-style options for housing. Each apartment is designed to house four students. The layouts include four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a washer and dryer, living room, dining room, and full kitchen.
