Residence Life


Returning Students who applied and paid their deposits for Fall 2015 Housing between April 1 and May 15 should check their campus email for a tentative assignment!

Students! Due to the anticipated shortage of spaces on campus- for the first time- Residence Life is offering a refund of the $100 deposit to students who cancel their assignment by July 25th. Keep in mind cancellations are final and cannot be reversed. If you do not wish to live on campus, take us up on your refund and email with your name, T number, and "Cancellation for [Your Name]" in the subject line. We will request the refund of your money within 7 days of the receipt of your email. Students from the Waiting List will be granted spaces based upon these cancellations. 

Freshmen and Transfer Students are assigned weekly. Students should expect to receive their assignment within two weeks of the date they complete both the online application and deposit.

Dear Residents,

Welcome to Tennessee State University! On behalf of the Department of Residence Life, allow us to welcome you to the residential facilities at Tennessee State University. Living in TSU housing offers a chance to build a community, not just a place to sleep.

We strive to provide you with a safe, secure, and comfortable living environment. Your safety and security is important to us; therefore, the Residence Life Staff lives in the residential facilities in order to respond quickly to the needs of our students.

We are dedicated to serving your needs and arranging both social and educational activities to help you meet other residents and enjoy your college experience. There is no reason to look elsewhere, apply today and reserve your space with Tennessee State University’s Department of Residence Life.
