On-campus housing at TSU is not the best aspect of the school; however, the students who live on campus seem to be pretty happy with their living arrangements. The dorms are really nothing to brag about. The rooms are really small, but they are not terribly out-of-date, and they are kept pretty clean. There are Internet and cable hookups, as well. In all honesty, there is not much room, but if you try and save some space for the wardrobe, finding a place for the computer and TV should not be a problem. Each student must have a student ID to get into their dorm, and they are pretty strict in making sure everyone who is there belongs there. After midnight the dorms calm down a bit, unless it’s before or after a football game, of course. Most students seem to be satisfied with the dorms, aside from the rooms being so small. TSU definitely needs to improve on the guys’ dorms, though. Boyd Hall is an absolute nightmare for the guys, and most of them are looking for other living arrangements after their first year.
The students who live on campus spend four years there, unless they can afford to move off campus. If you are interested in getting the full college experience, consider living on campus, but think really long about it, because there is nothing worse than getting a horrible roommate! If you want to experience TSU mostly for academics, consider living off campus, because you will have much more privacy.
