A Message to Our Waiting List Applicants from the VP of Student Affairs:

Dear Waiting List Applicant:

This letter is a follow up to the communication you received regarding your housing at Tennessee State University. We value you as a student, and we are pleased to inform you that we have secured housing for you for this fall.  This may possibly include alternative housing near the campus. 

As you are probably aware, our records indicate that your housing application was received after the May 1, 2017 priority housing deadline.  Since your application was received after that priority date (which caused the letter to be sent to you earlier this week), you were placed on the waiting list for housing for this fall.

The University guarantees housing for students who submitted applications on or before the May 1 priority deadline.  Applications for housing received after that deadline were placed on the TSU Tiger Residence Life 2017 Fall Semester waiting list. Housing is then assigned in the order in which applications were received. You have been removed from the waiting list because we have secured housing for you. The waiting list closed as of August 4, 2017. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you may have faced, and thank you for working with us throughout this process.

Information related to your housing assignment will be updated in your myTSU portal over the next few days.  Again, please note that your housing assignment could be at an off campus location near the campus. General information regarding Housing will be posted on the TSU housing website at .  Please send any additional questions you may have to .  All inquiries will be answered promptly.

We are delighted that we were able to accommodate your housing needs. Your presence, along with the thousands of other students enrolled, adds to our vibrant campus life. Student Affairs and Residence Life look forward to your return and serving you this semester!


Tracey D. Ford, E.D.

Vice President for Student Affairs
