New Student Information

We are glad that you have finished your admissions process and have been admitted to Harding University. Of course, I’m sure you have questions as to when housing assignments will be made and when you will receive information concerning your assignment. I will try to answer some of your questions concerning housing.

The housing assignments will be posted on Pipeline starting August 4th. Students will receive an email to their Harding email account telling them the assignments are ready to view.  The email will include a link for them to access Pipeline.  The students will need to have their username and password to log in to both their email and Pipeline. If the student does not have their username and password yet, they can contact Lora Fleener at 501-279-4100 or fleener@harding.edu to be assigned a username and password.

Below is an explanation of the manner in which assignments are made:

  • Transfers and former students are placed in order by classification and date admitted to the University for transfers and date of deposit for former students.  Assignments are made according to this order.
  • First-time-in-college (FTIC) students are put in order by the date their housing form is received and assigned according to this order.
  • If two students want to be roommates, they are put in order by the later of the two housing form acceptance dates.
  • After individuals are put in order as indicated above, we start assigning with the earliest form acceptance date, trying to give the desired roommate and residence hall assignment. If we can’t give both, we check to see which the student said was more important—roommate or residence hall—and make the assignment from that information.

Updates for roommate, suitemates, and residence hall choices will be taken until July 1st.

We hope to be able to honor requests for roommates and suitemates that are made by July 1st. In order to assign individuals as roommates, we must hear from both of them that they want to be together. We also try to honor suite mate choices, although it is more difficult to coordinate acceptance dates and dorm choices when four are involved. Again, we have to hear from all individuals. (In residence halls without suites, those who ask to be suitemates will be placed in rooms by each other.)

Cathcart, Pattie Cobb, Sears, Stephens, Searcy Hall, Pryor and Shores are women’s housing. In most cases, these residence halls have two rooms sharing a bathroom. Searcy Hall is an efficiency apartment-style residence hall. There might be a couple of vacancies for transfers in this facility. Shores and Pryor Halls are full size apartment-style residence halls.  Individuals wishing to live in these facilities must have completed at least 45 hours, although it usually takes more hours than that to secure a place. There might be a couple of vacancies for transfers in these facilities.

Women's privileged housing will be in some Legacy Park apartments, Harding's newest apartment complex.  These are not available for new students.  Occupants must have already resided in our residence halls and go through an application process.

Allen, Armstrong, Graduate, Harbin, Keller, and Cone Hall are men’s housing. Armstrong, Graduate, and Keller rooms are set up as suites, which are two rooms sharing a bathroom. Harbin and Allen have community baths with individual locking stalls for both commodes and showers. Cone Hall, is an efficiency apartment-style residence hall.

Men's privileged housing will be in Cone Hall. These are not available to new students. Occupants must have already resided in our residence halls and go through an approval process.

All rooms have some type of blinds on the windows and are air-conditioned. Pattie Cobb, Searcy Hall, Armstrong, and most of Sears,  Stephens, Graduate, and Keller have carpeting in the rooms. All beds in female residence halls are standard twins, as are those in Allen. Beds in Cone, Graduate, Armstrong, Harbin, and Keller are extra-long twins. For more information concerning individual dorms, see the individual descriptions in the Residence Halls section.

Freshmen women will be assigned in Cathcart and Sears, which are all-freshmen residence halls. Freshmen men will be assigned in Armstrong and Harbin, which are all-freshmen residence halls. If a freshman wishes to room with a current Harding student or a transfer, women pairs may live together in Stephens, and if there is room, men pairs in Keller and Graduate. These are the only residence halls with both freshmen and upperclassmen.


The first semester of college is a critical one and often sets the tone for a student’s future. Our freshmen residence halls are equipped with personnel who will help in this transition from high school to college. Your happiness is important to us.

If a student has a documented medical disability, which he/she believes requires special residence hall accommodations, he/she must contact the Disabilities office at 501-279-4019 immediately. Once we are aware of such a situation, we will let the student know what documentation is required for the request to be considered. Please be sure to provide your phone number and e-mail address.

We are looking forward to having you as a student this year. If my office may be of assistance to you, please call 1-501-279-4263 or e-mail me at kallen@harding.edu for women or 501-279-4358 or email Mrs. Gregersen at lgregers@harding.edu for men.
