Carter Hall

Carter Hall is the oldest building on Covenant's campus. In addition to housing most of the administrative offices, dining hall, and mailroom, the historic building is also the largest residence hall - home to nearly 300 students on four men's halls and five women's halls. Carter Hall residents tend to genuinely love both the classic feel of their rooms and halls, and the strong hall identities which connect them to students from years (and even decades) past!

While living in Carter Hall, you will call a two-person or four-person room your home. Among the unique features of Carter Hall:


  • The only residence hall rooms on campus with personal bathrooms.
  • The dining hall, mailroom, and student café (The Blink) are right downstairs.
  • The newest academic building on campus, Brock Hall, and a great new lawn for enjoying the outdoors, the Dottie Brock Gardens, are right in front of Carter Hall.

There are a total of eleven "halls" within the building, each with its own unique community, personality, and traditions. You will quickly come to love your hall's traditions, whether they include caving or rock climbing, joining twenty-five of your hallmates for breakfast at Cracker Barrel on Covenant's Day of Prayer, late-night runs to Krispy Kreme, or competing for an intramural sports championship. Across the building, you will also get the opportunity to enjoy some traditional Carter Hall events - decking your hall for the annual Carter Christmas decorating event, playing music for Cafe Literati, or participating in service events off campus.

Much more than that, however, you will have the opportunity to develop lasting friendships with your hallmates and taste the richness of fellowship with other believers. Most halls meet together once a week to worship and pray together, and once a month we gather as an entire residence hall for Carter Prayer and Praise. Saturday morning prayer breakfasts for men and small group Bible studies are a few of the other opportunities which exist to engage your fellow students on a deeper level. We are excited to welcome you into our community at Covenant College, and even more excited still to welcome you to Carter Hall!
