On-Campus Housing (dorms)

University on-campus housing may be available in some of the residence halls. These accommodations are VERY LIMITED with our current student enrollment. Men will be housed in men’s housing and women in women’s housing. Cost is $25 per night for a single room or $15 per night for a shared room. All those staying must abide by all university policies. Please be aware that the administration now requires on-campus overnight lectureship guests to complete a background check. More information about the background check will be provided upon completion of the housing request form. If you are staying in our university on-campus housing you will need to provide your own linens (mattresses are extra long), towels and toiletries. Please submit a Housing Request Form by clicking the link below. If you have any questions please contact Lieh Brumback at 731-989-6176 or nbrumback@fhu.edu.


Campers/Motor Homes (very limited space; reservations usually made a year in advance)

Spaces for RV (not meant for campers with slide-outs on both sides) and one vehicle available. Space, water, and electrical service cost is $20 per day payable at FHU Business Services Office (in Loyd Aud.) upon arrival. No power cables or hoses are provided by FHU - bring extra of both as some spaces are 100+ feet from service hook-ups. Space reservations cannot be held after first day of Lectureship for late arrivals as we have no way to keep vehicles out of reserved spaces if the RV’s are not in them by the beginning of the event. Call FHU Facilities at 731-989-6413 for reservations in advance.



Cost will be $20 per person per night.

  • Number in Party

  • Nights of Accommodation (Feb 5, 6, 7, 8 and/or 9)
