We have a tight-knit campus community for a reason. Because approximately 75 percent of Transylvania students live on campus, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to find study partners, hang out, and make lifelong friends.
Whether you live in a traditional residence hall, an apartment, or one of our suite-style residences, living on campus can be a highlight of your college experience. Thanks to our urban campus, your residence halls are minutes away from classrooms and the library — not to mention great restaurants, coffee shops, and night spots.
Transylvania’s housing options are below. After your first year, you can choose a residence hall based on your preference for double, single, or suite-style living, your Greek affiliation, or your preferred activity level. Need a place that’s focused on studying? We’ve got that. Like to grill out with friends? We have a place for that, too.
