Residential Life


Residential Life

The Office of Residential Life realizes the impact that living arrangements can create on a student’s life and education. We feel the decision to live in University housing will provide additional opportunities; for personal growth, educational development, connectedness, and leadership experiences. Studies consistently show that students living in the residence halls have higher grade point averages and lower dropout rates and are involved in more campus activities than those living at home or off campus. 

TTU campus has 9 residence halls, one for men, one for women and 7 coeducational halls accommodating approximately 2,300 students.  Each residence hall is supported by a Hall Director, a live in professional staff member, and between 9 and 12 Resident Assistants (RAs), upper class students hired to provide support, guidance and community development on each of the floors. Each residence hall is secured by entry through an electronic card access with only assigned residents and staff being allowed entrance. In addition to our residence hall space we also have 228 newly renovated apartments that are to all full-time students.  Thse apartments may be rented either individually or shared.  The apartments are supported by a Residential Coordinator and 4 Resident Assistants.  You may contact our office at 931-372-3548 or reslife@tntech.edu for additional information about housing at TTU.
