Living at Thomas College—Find Yourself at Home.
College life at Thomas is so much more than the classroom—it’s the community. Living on our residential campus will help you grow as a person socially, physically, and intellectually. You’ll make lifelong friends, learn more than you ever thought possible, and start to understand your potential and purpose.
The Office of Residential Life at Thomas is made up of our Dean of Students, three live-in area coordinators, and 23 student Resident Assistants. This team is available 24 hours a day to help make life on campus fun, safe and healthy, and full of opportunities to learn.
Thomas offers a variety of options for on-campus living throughout your four years in college. Every residence includes student lounges, computer study labs, laundry facilities, study areas, vending machines, and wireless internet. Every room comes with a bed, bureau, desk, cable TV, and high-speed internet port. You can also apply to live in themed housing for a unique experience.
Between classes, the Student Commons is the center of it all. This brand-new building has an atrium lounge, meeting rooms, the Dog Pound café, space to screen movies or host events, a campus store, and space to play pool, ping pong, or foosball. Jeanie’s Café in the Library is the newest hot spot on campus and the best place to enjoy a cup of Starbucks coffee with friends before class. Students rave about the food at our new Dining Center—whether you’re grabbing something on the go or hanging out with friends, there’s something for everyone.
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.
