Housing and Residence Life
The Residence Life Department maintains a healthy living and learning campus environment that respects and appreciates the uniqueness of each individual, while encouraging personal growth, integrity, ethical leadership development, and student learning. Student Housing & Residence Life support the academic experience by providing social, academic, and healthy living/wellness programs for our residents. The Residence Life experiences offers opportunities for leadership through becoming a Resident Assistant, joining Residence Hall Council, or taking advantage of programs sponsored by student leaders and staff in the Residence Halls.
The Fisk Experience
The Fisk Experience is the promotion of a high standard of values, beliefs, and the vision for the Fisk University community. By design, the Fisk Experience is a model to inspire our students intellectually, culturally, and socially. As a part of the Division of Student Life, the Fisk Experience theme “Success is in the D.E.T.A.I.L.S.” is a central theme of Student Housing in support of the University’s values of Diversity, Excellence, Teamwork, Accountability, Integrity, Leadership, and Service. Our goal is to prepare the entire student community to be student leaders through providing services and programs that support the beliefs of the Fisk Experience.
Students are placed in the residence halls based upon academic standing. Freshman women reside in Jubilee Hall. Freshman men reside in New Livingstone Hall on the 1st floor. Upper-class women are assigned to Crossthwaite Hall and upper-class men are assigned to the 2nd or 3rd floor of New Livingstone Hall.
