All non-married students under the age of 23 at the time of registration who are enrolled for six or more hours per semester and do not live at home are required to live in University residence halls and participate in the meal plan. Any exceptions are granted by special permission by the associate provost and dean of student development and the Student Life Council.

The associate dean of student development for residential life exercises general supervision over all of the residence halls. In addition, there are resident directors and resident assistants in each residence hall. Residence hall councils are organized to assist in providing a pleasant atmosphere in the residence halls. Residence hall policies are stated in the Student Handbook.

Trevecca offers a limited number of apartments for rent on campus for married students, single students who are 23 years of age or older, and other personnel. The majority are one- and two-bedroom unfurnished apartments in the University Terrace Apartments. The apartment coordinator in the financial services office can give more specific details regarding the amount of rent, availability, and regulations.
