Student Housing

Community is a central focus at Milligan, and we believe that living in close proximity to your friends and classmates is a big part of what it means to join the Milligan family. So we require that all students at Milligan live on campus (see “Commuters” below for details and exceptions).

More than 70 percent of our traditional students live on campus in one of eleven residence halls or student apartments. This is where much of the community life and social involvement on campus occurs.

Sutton Hall

Milligan University has traditionally been a residential college and continues to support the concept that community living as part of college life complements the academic experience and contributes to holistic development of the student. So we require that all students at Milligan live on campus. Exceptions to this policy are:

  1. Any student who is married
  2. Any student who is living with a member of his/her own immediate family (parents, grandparents, married brother or sister)
  3. Any student who has completed 128 semester hours or eight semesters of full-time academic work
  4. Any student whose total load for a given semester is less than 9 hours
  5. Any student who is a military veteran of more than one year
  6. Any student who will be 23 years or older in the fall semester

Official guidelines are outlined in the Student Handbook. To request approval for off-campus living, contact the Office of Student Development at 423.461.8760.


We love commuter students! Living off-campus can often make it hard for students to feel connected, but we strive to create opportunities for our commuter students to feel at home. All student activities are open to commuter students—and we hope you’ll attend! The P.H. Welshimer Library is open late most nights for studying and research, and there are a number of lounges and other places spaced throughout campus where students can gather and spend time working on projects, eating together, or simply hanging out. Commuter students are also invited to run for office in the Student Government Association or meet other commuters on the Commuter Council.

Food & Dining

Milligan offers an unlimited access continuous service meal plan Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in McCormick Dining Center, with late-night service in The Grill. Complete meal programs are offered at traditional meal times, and at other times beverages, cereals, deli, pizza, soup, salad, fruits, desserts, and bread are available. The dining center is a community-oriented space where students can visit, study, or grab a bite with friends at their convenience.

Options for Everyone

Green on the Go

In the effort to reduce waste and the excessive use of Styrofoam in the cafeteria, Pioneer College Caterers has introduced their “Green on the Go” program at Milligan. Students that are on the meal plan and need a meal “To Go” are allowed to enter the cafeteria and pack their meal in a recycled container. Upon return, the container and silverware is washed and returned to the student for future meals.

Grab N-Go Meals

For students with busy work or class schedules that conflict with meal times, we offer a convenient to-go meal option at The Grill. Submit a request and your meal will be waiting for you to pickup!

The Flex account is an option that provides a meal credit line on your Student ID at The Grill for an additional charge to your meal plan. Commuters not on the campus meal plan may also purchase an account to be used for meal purchases in either The Grill or the cafeteria. For more information on this option please click here!
