Residence Life

Living on campus is an important part of the overall educational and discipleship experience at TMU.  We are committed to the development of students into disciples of Christ and seek to further this goal through living, learning, playing, praying, and studying God’s word together in our residence hall communities.

We seek to build God-honoring communities that both challenge and support residents, as well as build and strengthen relationships.  Resident Directors offer primary leadership for each of our residence hall communities, and are supported by student Resident Assistants.  Our staff to student ratio is approximately 1:20.

Regardless of which residence hall you live in, you will become part of a community committed to your Christian discipleship and academic success.
