Dorm Living at Currey Ingram

Currey Ingram employs full-time residential faculty to work with students during the afternoons and evenings in the residence hall.
Through our very intentional residential life program, we integrate extended academic support, executive function skills (organization, time management, self-advocacy, etc.) and pragmatics (conversational skills, making new friends, building community) into daily living expectations.

In our safe, supportive environment, we offer a variety of activities and programs that promote friendship and relationship building. On campus, students will enjoy the peaceful 83 acres that includes a trail and a creek for outdoor activities. Off campus, we take advantage of the proximity to Nashville to attend college and professional sports events, live music events and more. Additionally, students will participate in service learning projects and clubs/activities specifically intended for building community in the Residential Life program.

Our warm and inviting residence hall is designed to provide a flexible environment for residential life students and staff where group activities, study and rest can happen in a safe, beautiful space.
