Residence Life

Welcome to Housing & Residence Life at the University of the Cumberlands! Our goal in Housing & Residence Life is to create an atmosphere of community that is conducive to healthy lifestyles and academic accomplishment. With a variety of housing options available to undergraduate students, we strongly believe living on campus can help you make the most of your UC experience. From late night study sessions to impromptu hangouts, campus housing offers some amazing opportunities. Here you can apply for on-campus housing and also learn more about our residence halls. Welcome home!
