Enriching lives through art and craft

Campus Housing

Students generally live on campus during their workshop in order to take full advantage of the immersion opportunity, get to know their fellow students, and spend as much time as possible focused on their work. Campus housing options include single, double, triple and dormitory rooms in four buildings. All linens and towels are provided. Rooms are assigned on a first come, first served basis.

All campus housing prices include meals daily in the Staff House Dining Hall. Meals are served Sunday dinner through Friday breakfast for one-week classes and Thursday dinner through Sunday lunch for weekend classes. Although we cannot provide special options for everyone, we do provide vegetarian meal choices.

Students may choose to stay off campus. Information on off-campus housing can be obtained from the Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce (800-588-1817, www.gatlinburg.com). No camping is permitted on Arrowmont property. No pets are permitted on campus except service animals. Students staying off-campus may purchase meal plans at $250 for one-week, $546 for two-week, and $132 for weekend workshops.

2021 Housing and Linen Update:

Arrowmont has updated the housing policy for the safety and health of all students, faculty, and staff during the coronavirus pandemic. On-campus student housing for National Workshops will be in Bill May Hall, formally called New Dormitory. Each student will stay in a private room with private bathroom, or, if requesting traveling together, in a double room with private bathroom. Double rooms will not be available for strangers. Students may also opt to stay off-campus. On-campus housing fees include all meals during the workshop session.

As a safety precaution for students and staff, the Housekeeping department will not enter student’s rooms during the duration of the workshop week. A bar of soap, set of bed linens, a set of towels, blanket and pillow will be provided for each student in their room.


Bill May Hall (formerly called New Dormitory) is four stories, has an elevator and will offer private rooms and baths, a central gathering place, and a lovely screened in porch with fireplace.

Single $900 $1,855 $425
Double $700 $1,455 $355

  prices are per person

Please note: Cottages and Red Barn rooms are not available for student housing in 2021
