Life and Housing

About Us

The Office of Residential Life at Thomas College offers a wealth of resources and information for students living on campus including, but not limited to, assistance with any housing questions, roommate concerns, living and learning in a community and maintenance issues.

The Office of Residential Life consists of the Dean of Students, Three Live-In Area Coordinators and twenty-three student Resident Assistants. The staff, based on their commitment to student development needs, act as both a support and a resource to countless numbers of students in various capacities.

Additionally, the Residential Life staff and the College administration believe that residential life can make a significant contribution to the social, physical and intellectual development of our students.

The Residential Life staff members strive to create in each residence hall, a community atmosphere that is both academically and socially stimulating.

Student growth and development are encouraged and supported by the staff through floor and hall programs. Each resident is expected to assume responsibility for his/her own actions and to assist in maintaining a comfortable and safe living environment.

Diversity Statement

Thomas College is committed to promoting a diverse community in an atmosphere of mutual respect. We recognize and appreciate diversity in relation to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, veteran status, age, socioeconomic status, and disability. Prominent among the values that define the Thomas College community is civility, which includes mutual respect, fairness, and appreciation of differences. All members of the college are called upon to promote and value this ethic of common respect and civility.

Note: The “Safe Space” sticker, as seen on hundreds of college campuses nationally, sends an important message to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students, colleagues and their allies. The message is one of understanding, non-judgment and knowledge of LGBT persons’ needs and concerns. It is symbolic of willingness and a commitment to provide an atmosphere of unqualified acceptance and assistance and is obtained after completion of a training session provided during the academic year.
