Housing Options

We have a tight-knit campus community for a reason. Because approximately 75 percent of Transylvania students live on campus, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to find study partners, hang out, and make lifelong friends.

Have questions about living on campus? Take a look at our Residence Life Frequently Asked Questions to see if your question is listed.

We also have a list of suggested items to bring with you to campus.

Whether you live in a traditional residence hall, an apartment, or one of our suite-style residences, living on campus can be a highlight of your college experience. Thanks to our urban campus, your residence halls are minutes away from classrooms and the library — not to mention great restaurants, coffee shops, and night spots.

Thomson Hall

Transylvania’s housing options are below. After your first year, you can choose a residence hall based on your preference for double, single, or suite-style living, your Greek affiliation, or your preferred activity level. Need a place that’s focused on studying? We’ve got that. Like to grill out with friends? We have a place for that, too.

  • Forrer Hall — Four-story building with separate areas for first-year women, sorority members, and unaffiliated upperclass women.
  • Rosenthal Apartment Complex — 42-unit apartment complex for upperclass students.
  • Poole Residence Center — Suite-style living for upperclass students.
