The most pressing of those needs is for additional on-campus housing for students.


The university’s peri-urban location offers students the perfect environment in which to focus and flourish. However, that location also makes living off-campus and commuting daily expensive, and challenging. With 1,100 dormitory beds available, only a third of enrolled students have access to on-campus housing. A widening gap between demand and the available supply of campus housing is a major constraint to enrollment growth.


If you would like to invest in student housing at Africa University, consider a gift of $1.5 million to build and equip a dormitory. To explore a potential gift, please contact Mr. James H. Salley, president and chief executive officer, Africa University (Tennessee) Inc., at or 615.340.7438.
