Living in a TCU residence hall is an integral part of the TCU experience. Residence hall students make new friends, get involved in campus activities, and discover opportunities for personal and intellectual growth. Residence halls are conveniently located on the campus, and the halls provide a comfortable room that a student can call "home" while at TCU.
Almost one half of the undergraduate students at TCU live on campus. Through academic, cultural, intramural and social activities, students within each hall determine the hall's character. Participation in these activities assists in the student's adjustment and development within a residential setting.
Residence hall rooms are designed for student comfort and are used for study as well as sleeping and socializing. All accommodations are air-conditioned, non-smoking facilities. Most rooms are designed for double occupancy. The basic student room contains a bed, a desk and chair, a chest, and a closet for each student. Each room is also equipped with a MicroFridge, access to the Internet, TCU cable television and local telephone services. Students are encouraged to add decorative items to personalize their surroundings.
The residence hall office is a primary resource on campus. The hall director, a live-in professional who administers the hall, serves as an adviser to students. Each hall has resident assistants (RAs) who are sensitive to student needs and alert to student concerns. The hall staff knows the many University resources and can help students find needed assistance.
Residence hall programs at TCU assume that the most productive learning environment extends into all areas of a student's life. All residence halls offer a broad range of programs, which may include social programs, physical activities, career information, study skills, personal management skills, spiritual involvement, and self-help aids. Programs are designed to meet the unique interests of the student population in a particular residence hall. Student involvement enhances the creation of a distinctive hall environment.
