Living on campus provides students the total college experience and extends learning beyond the classroom through social and educational activities. Students develop a sense of community that allows them the opportunity to form connections with students from diverse backgrounds who have similar interests and aspirations. College isn’t just about classes and curriculum. Interaction and recreation keep minds and bodies active. TU supports students’ social development alongside academic growth. The relationships our students forge through campus living during their time at TU last decades.
