Lipscomb Academy traces its roots back to 1891 when two preachers named David Lipscomb and James A. Harding established the Nashville Bible School in a rented house in downtown Nashville. Thirty-two students were enrolled during the first session. By 1896 the school had three divisions: collegiate, intermediate, and primary. Most of the primary students were children of faculty members.

While the primary business of Lipscomb University is focused on spiritual formation, academic achievement, career preparedness and community building, there are times when a visitor, student, parent, to name a few, just needs to know where to go to take care of a few practical bits of business! So here is some support office information.
It's not all about what happens in the classroom. One of the best parts of the Lipscomb experience might be the community you'll find in one of Lipscomb's great housing options.

We want you to learn more about where you'll be living the next four years; you might be surprised by some of the amenities offered to you. Also, we're really excited to announce our newest housing option, Bison Hall, a upperclassmen hotel-esque option we're sure you'll want to check out. Okay, get going.
