Living on campus is a game changer.

To make the most of your college experience, come live on campus. Not only does it put you in the middle of everything, but research shows that it improves student grades. Carney-Johnston Residence Hall, once the most popular place for Lambuth University students to live, reopened in fall 2013. This historic building, located on the quadrangle between Wilder Student Union and the Athletic Building on the new UofM Lambuth grounds, offers housing for up to 190 students in single and double rooms with suite-style baths. Carney-Johnston's recent upgrades include new fire safety systems, heating and cooling improvements, as well as new paint and carpet in every room. The building is ADA accessible.

In addition to separate floors for male and female residents, study lounges on the second floor offer 24-hour access to a quiet study area.  A large living room on the first floor can be used for social activities for Carney-Johnston Hall residents.
