Cubed Living: Frequently Asked Questions
Are you affiliated with a religious denomination?
We are not directly affiliated with any particular denomination. Youth For America is a multi-denominational non-profit organization that supports secondary school level and college-aged young adults in the growth and sharing of their faith within the arenas and communities God has them placed in--based on Biblical standards.
What type of security does Cubed Living have?
We have state of the art security cameras that are located at every entrance and exit of the houses. Front door locks are fingerprint accessible to current residents in the program.
What forms of payment does Cubed Living accept?
Cubed Living accepts payments through checks, online, credit/debit cards, scholarships, grants, financial aid, and student loans. Talk to a Residential Coordinator if you have any questions or concerns!
How do you match roommates?
We have a roommate selection profile for each resident to complete. We do our best to pair you up with roommates who have similar interests and personalities. Our desire at Cubed Living is for you to grow through every opportunity including your roommate relationships! Please understand that as rooms fill up, our ability to roommate match becomes increasingly limited.
Why two residents per bedroom?
In Mark 6:7, Jesus dispersed his disciples by twos in order to spread the good news; but He also did it to ensure that one would help the other keep from distractions and stay on course. Here at Cubed Living, we highly believe in that same strategy/teaching. We understand that being alone in one's faith can be challenging. Therefore, we apply the "Two-by-two" approach in all dorm rooms. Following this basic guideline strengthens our walk with Christ, because together we can see and come to understand the need for one another. Together, we can help keep each other accountable and prevail in the name of Jesus.
How many residents can Cubed Living hold?
Cubed Living can house 48 residents total.
What type of residential life activities does C3L have?
Meeting people and successful networking is a large part of your college/career experience! We want Cubed Living to be a hub of activity where you are not holed up in your room, but out and about meeting others and encouraging one another to live out your faith in realistic ways. Our residential coordinators seek to plan and execute monthly activities and/or service projects to give you opportunities to meet your neighbors and build relationships. We also love it when our residents take it upon themselves to organize activities!
Where can I park my car?
All residents will have to use street parking for their vehicles. There will be bike racks located on the site location for any resident who owns a bike.
What modes of transportation are available to me in the area?
Walking is one option: UTC Campus is located less than a mile from the Cubed Living Houses (More like 500 yards actually.)
Chattanooga has a wonderful public transportation system called CARTA that provides rides around campus and to perimeter parking to UTC students at no cost! Plus, a validated UTC ID card gains unlimited free access to downtown, Hamilton Place, Northgate and every other CARTA route. **All Mocs Express Shuttle buses are wheelchair accessible. (See Mocs Express here.) More info about these routes can be found on the CARTA website.
Chattanooga is also home to “Bike Chattanooga” a bike sharing system with over 300 bikes at 38 stations across Chattanooga. Designed for quick trips around town, Bike Chattanooga is a fun, flexible and convenient way to get around.
Are there job opportunities or internships that accompany the Leadership Program at Cubed Living?
Cubed Living is always on the lookout for additional opportunities for its residents--we scout out a number of employment opportunities throughout the year. There are part-time hours and/or internships for various positions like: Chick-Fil-A, custodial/maintenance work, fitness daycare workers, preschools, banks, construction, etc.
Our goal is to connect every resident with an entry level position into which they can matriculate with the understanding already ingrained in them of what is required in order to proceed with excellence, for the glory of God and in the name of Jesus.
