3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing was convenient because the buildings are pretty close to one another.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My experience living on campus wasn't that bad. Everything was in walking distance of what I needed and I really like that there is a café on the first floor of my dorm. I wish the rooms were bigger but that would be the only thing I would like to change. The best dorm to live in would have to be Rudolph and that's because it newer and it just seems a lot more cleaner than any other dorm on campus. There is always something to do on campus but sometimes you may become bored. Moving in was a breeze and it doesn't cost much to live on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are a lot of pros with going to an hbcu but there are also a lot of cons. Tsu needs a lot of work but has the potential to be an excellent school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Well I don't live on campus when I did the residents was nice and clean all the time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm that I stayed in was ok. It was very old so it was nothing we could do about it! It needs a lot of work such as the laundry room. The laundry room had 6 washers/driers and only 3 out of 6 worked on each.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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 The rooms are really small, but they are not terribly out-of-date, and they are kept pretty clean.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.
