Whether you choose to live in college housing or commute each day to be part of our community, Thomas College will feel like a welcoming family. About 85% of first-year students live on campus, and from day one, you’ll experience the amenities, support systems, and programming you need to feel right at home.
Every student residence has lounges, study areas, computer labs, laundry facilities, vending machines, and wireless internet. Every room comes with a bed, bureau, desk, cable TV, and a high-speed internet port. You can even apply for themed housing were all students have a common objective, like quiet time for studies, or a shared interest, like gaming.
Our Spann Student Commons is a central hub on campus and a welcoming place for students and Thomas community members to gather. It includes the campus store, the Dog Pound, atrium lounge, game tables, meeting rooms, and space to screen movies or host events. Our Dining Center has fantastic food to enjoy with friends or to grab and go. Over at the Library, Jeanie’s Cafe serves your favorite Starbucks coffee.
Thomas College is committed to building a diverse, equitable and inclusive community that fosters professional, intellectual, and social advancement. We proudly recognize that our differences as well as our commonalities promote the integrity and resilience toprepare our students for the evolving world we serve. We are committed to providing the necessary leadership, guidance, and resources necessary to promote campus diversity, mutual respect, fairness and appreciation of differences. Thomas College pledges through its policies and procedures to support all efforts to educate its members about our goals, and to hold all members of the community to the standards found in both our Employee Handbook and the Student Conduct Code that honor the unique and valuable contributions of each individual member of our community.
Note: The “Safe Space” sticker, as seen on hundreds of college campuses nationally, sends an important message to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ+) 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.
