Housing

Want to make the most of your college experience? Living on campus at Hiwassee College will give you the opportunity to do just that! Not only will you have easy access to events and activities happening on campus, but you are close to the town of Madisonville, where you can find restaurants and several stores. By making one of our residence halls your home, it allows you to meet new people, from various backgrounds, and grow with them on your educational journey. This creates an environment where friendships flourish and memories are made that last a lifetime.

Resident Life Programs

The Office of Student Affairs and staff provide scheduled activities throughout the year for all students. Some of those activities include resident life programs that are held at the residence halls and led by the Resident Director and Resident Assistants. These programs allocate you a little time to take a break from studying and enjoy fun activities with other residents. The Student Life Activity Schedule is also emailed out to students each semester, listing resident life programs.

Resident Director & Resident Assistants

Not only does each residence hall have a Resident Director on the first floor, but every floor is also staffed with resident assistants or RA’s. All residential staff members have been trained to assist you while you live in the residence hall.  The RA staff is on duty seven days a week, doing rounds on all of the floors in their residence hall and providing lobby hours from 12:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. Sunday - Wednesday and 12:00 p.m. until 12:00 a.m. Thursday - Saturday. RA’s also plan and host activities for residents on their floor. The RA’s can help you with everything from maintenance issues to assisting you in dealing with a roommate problem.
