The Covenant Community

Life on our beautiful campus atop Georgia’s Lookout Mountain can’t be described with just words or pictures. You need to experience it.


When you move into one of our residence halls or student apartments, you’ll enjoy pickup basketball games, join in impromptu concerts, and develop lifelong friendships with students on your floor, such as Catacombs or Third South. The residence halls are where you will explore your faith in ways you simply can’t in a classroom. And it’s where some of your best Covenant memories will be made.


Residence Halls and Student Apartments

Living in a residence hall at Covenant is going to be a new experience for you. So you’ll need to be properly equipped with a new vocabulary. Here’s a translation…

  • Brethren, Halcyon, and Ithaca are a few of our 35 residence halls, each with its own distinct flavor, identity, and traditions.
  • RA stands for Resident Assistant, an upperclassman who lives on your floor, guides you in your transition to college life, and may end up being one of your best friends.
  • O-Team is the Orientation Team, whose mission is to make sure that all new students get the support, answers, and advice they need upon moving to Covenant.


There is never a shortage of fun and excitement at Covenant. The residence halls are a perfect example of this. Imagine…

  • Joining your roommates in an elaborate Christmas decorating contest for Carter Christmas
  • Decorating your hall for Down in Andreas
  • Settling in with popcorn at Mac Movie Night
  • Putting the final touches on your theme for Around Founders


Residence Life staff organize social, spiritual, and educational events and focus on building relationships. They’re readily available to listen, answer challenging questions, and serve you.

Upperclassmen have the option of living in on-campus apartments, which are two-bedroom/one-bath duplexes that usually house four people.


You can learn about other on-campus resources such as dining services, technology, and health services in the Student Resources section.

“I believe that residence life is vital to the entire college experience, and I am blessed to have had an amazing and encouraging hall my first year at Covenant. My hallmates and the students here have a mature and healthy approach towards academics, and I have been reminded daily that you are first and foremost a student at Covenant. My hall and the residence life in Carter has encouraged me in many ways, especially in my academics, and has given me the space and time that I need to be able to do my best work each day.”

“I love hall life here! I’ve stayed on one hall (Harambe!, woot woot) for three years so far and have loved doing life with these ladies. Late night shenanigans, dance parties, prayer and praise, and outdoor study sessions are frequent, and these girls are the absolute best company for it!”
