You belong from the very first day!

Worried about making your new room into a home? Relax. At Graceland, our unique 'House' system makes sure that everyone is included. No pledging, no hazing. You will be in touch instantly with a circle of friends you'll know from day one to graduation (and beyond).

On-campus living fosters a sense of community, reduces the stresses associated with maintaining a private residence and allows you to stay plugged-in to the "Graceland Experience." We strongly believe in the positive value that living on campus provides so all undergraduate students under the age of 23 live on campus.

Graceland offers two kinds of housing; dorm style residence halls and apartments. Priority for the  apartments is upper classmen (junior or senior standing).

Living in University housing also means you don't have to worry about food, it's all taken care of for you. Floyd McDowell Commons, our dining hall, and the Swarm Inn, our retail dining location (both are managed by Sodexo and serve darn good food), are open seven days a week. With multiple meal plans, you can choose the one that's right for you.

Residence Hall Linens

Graceland University has extra long mattresses which are longer than 76 inches. These extra-long beds require specifically-sized sheets, comforters and blankets. Therefore, Graceland University is providing the Residence Hall Linens program to our students and families. On move-in day it's important to have those XL sheets that can be hard to find. Our goal is to make sure every parent and student is ready with the right size sheets, so we offer a huge variety of custom-sized linens guaranteed to fit your residence hall bed and to last until graduation. We also provide a selection of extra-long thermal blankets, extra-long mattress pads, pillows, storage solutions, extra-long comforters and anything else you will need.
