Campus information

The Bryan College campus in Dayton is 128 acres (0.52 km2) with 20 buildings, 7 of which are residence halls.

Its association with the Scopes Trial has led to its addition as a stop along the Southeast Tennessee Religious Trail.

Bryan College is located in Dayton, TN.


Arnold Residence Hall is one of Bryan’s two suite-style housing facilities. The hall is named for founders, donors, and long-time trustees Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Arnold.

With a capacity for about 100 students, Arnold was built in 1972. The rooms have a connecting bathroom for every two rooms. The building is carpeted throughout with lounge, kitchen, laundry rooms, and storage facilities. All rooms are individually climate controlled.

H.D. Long
H.D. Long Hall is Bryan’s oldest residence facility, opening in January of 1964. Two months later, Huston Hall, Long’s sister building opened its doors. This hall is named for Dr. H. D. Long, member of the board of trustees from 1946 to 1968 and its hard-working chairman from 1955-68.

Long contains 49 residence rooms which are individually climate-controlled. Each student room has a sink and is furnished with beds, wardrobes and study desks. Some student rooms are fitted with movable, modular furniture. The building also has a lounge, a kitchen, bathrooms on each floor, two laundry rooms, storage facilities and a resident director apartment.

Currently, Long houses female and male students (women live on the first floor; men live on the third and fourth floors). Long’s second floor serves as the building’s community hub, where students have access to a lounge, a study lab and a kitchen.

F.E. Robinson
F. E. Robinson Residence Hall opened in August 2006. The hall is named for F. E. Robinson, one of Bryan College’s founders and generous donors who served as chairman of the board of trustees for over 25 years.

Providing housing for 120 women, the building is a traditional style hall with bathrooms and lounges on each floor, a computer lab and is wired for residents to have wireless Internet access from their rooms. Rooms are individually climate-controlled and are equipped with movable, modular furniture.

Built in 2010, the Townhouses at Bryan Commons are the newest residence facilities at Bryan College. Reserved for juniors and seniors, the Townhouses are distinctive because there are six students to an apartment, a full kitchen an living area, cable TV in each apartment, and the residents are not required to be on the meal plan or observe a curfew.

These buildings include state-of-the-art features including hybrid-mini HVAC units and full kitchens. A separate wash-house unit with six washers and six dryers is provided for the townhouse complex.

Built in 1984, Woodlee-Ewing Residence Hall is Bryan’s largest residence facility, housing a capacity of 174 students. The hall is named for trustee Glen Woodlee and his wife, Sarah Ewing Woodlee, whose family was among the founders of the college.

This building is designed suite-style to accommodate two students per room, with every two rooms having a connecting bathroom. Each room’s built-in furniture is arranged to provide two private study centers. All rooms are tiled and individually climate-controlled. Lounges, a kitchen area, a laundry room, storage facilities and a resident director’s apartment complement the 87 student rooms.
