Campus information

Catawba's campus is located in the historic piedmont city of Salisbury and consists of 41 buildings on 276 acres. It is a beautiful blend of neogothic architecture set on a shaded hillside adjacent to its own ecological preserve. Centrally located, it is only two hours away from the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina and four hours away from some of the best beaches on the Atlantic Coast.

Salisbury, N.C., a historic Southern city (pop. 30,000) located 45 minutes from the greater Charlotte area, Greensboro and Winston-Salem and two hours from the mountains and four hours from the beaches


Residence Life is considered to be an integral part of a student's development and important to the college experience. Professional and paraprofessional staff persons are committed to providing an environment conducive to a student's academic, social, and personal growth. Appropriate programs, services, and guidelines are provided to promote a positive residence life program.

Catawba requires housing for all full-time students (enrolled for 12 or more semester hours) who are not 21 years of age and who do not room and board at the home of their parents, guardians, or spouse. Students living on campus must take a full-time course load unless they have been granted an exception by the Director of Housing and Residential Life.

Students are assigned to campus housing facilities through the Office of Student Affairs under Housing and Residence Life. Established room reservation procedures are followed for all students. Students are furnished with a study table, bed, mattress, chair, and dresser or chest of drawers. Students must furnish their own bed and bath linens. The residence halls provide laundry facilities for student use.
