Residence Life

Thank you for choosing or considering to live on campus at the University of Tennessee at Martin. The residence life experience is designed to support you through your academic career as you learn about yourself and about living in a community with others. This is a valuable part of your educational experience, and our staff work hard to maintain an environment that fosters social inclusiveness, responsibility, self-governance and accountability, academic achievement, community development, and personal fulfillment.


Get involved and make positive contributions to your community. Learn to appreciate differences and celebrate the diversity that is such a valuable component of the community at UTM. Introduce yourself to your neighbors and get to know your Resident Assistant. RAs are trained as a resource to help you to be successful and to assist you with questions and concerns.


Much of the learning that happens at UTM takes place outside of the classroom, and residence life is a large part of that. Your stay on campus will be one of the most rewarding aspects of your time at UTM.


If you ever have any questions or comments, please feel free to call us anytime at 731-881-7730 or e-mail me at
