At Johnson, students build deep friendships, connect with professors who care, and prepare for a life of purpose.

Challenge yourself to experience new activities and make new friends! Most of our undergraduate students live on campus and love the fun and friendship of dorm life. Outside your room, a typical day might include a study session in the River Grille or the Commons Café, rehearsal for a choir performance, sports practice, lunch with a professor, or a huge bonfire. No matter who you are or what you’re into, you’ll discover opportunities to connect with others and stretch yourself.


Johnson University Florida is just minutes from some of the country’s biggest attractions! Check out downtown Orlando for a beautiful lakefront cityscape and catch an NBA game at the Amway Center or an MLS match at Orlando City Stadium. Central Florida is the theme park capital of the world, and we’re minutes away from Disney World, Universal Studios, and even Gatorland.

Of course Johnson students also love the beach. We’re just an hour from both coasts, so you can explore some of the most beautiful beaches in the country.


Johnson University Tennessee is just 12 miles from downtown Knoxville.  Students love visiting this vibrant city to experience live music, eclectic shopping, highly acclaimed cuisine, and a variety of cultural offerings.

And don’t miss the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, the most visited national park in the country. Head out for a hike with your friends on some of the 850 miles of hiking trails or go for a swim beneath a waterfall – there are more than 100!


Students gather for worship, prayer, and teaching in chapel every Tuesday and Thursday morning. On Wednesdays, faculty members and staff lead small groups on topics ranging from literature, songwriting, and film to theology and missions.

Students contribute to the community and apply classroom principles in the real world through a structured service learning program as well as annual service days. Over the course of four years, every student will spend more than 120 hours outside the classroom serving the ministries and causes they care about.


From bonfires and coffee houses to worship nights and water gun wars, students at Johnson have a great time together. Both campuses offer both varsity and intramural sports, including a competitive Ultimate Frisbee team at JUTN. Student Government organizes many activities including Christmas parties, study nights and snacks during finals, karaoke, worship nights, and student banquets.
