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. Over 80% 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 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.
