Clay & Davis Halls
Clay and Davis Halls, the men's residence halls at Transylvania, are connected by a common lobby. Clay Hall primarily houses first-year students, while upperclass and fraternity men reside in Davis Hall.
Rooms are spacious enough that students often bring a loveseat or futon to add to the ambience of their living environment. The four-story building features community bathrooms, laundry facilities, a 14-station computer lab, and a chapter room for each of the four fraternities on campus.
The lobby area and entertainment event space of Clay/Davis halls features a 55-inch big screen television, VCR, and DVD player. This is the site for social events on campus including the yearly Casino Night program sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Students. Concerts, coffeehouse nights, and fraternity and student organization parties are held in this space, making Clay/Davis an active and lively building.
This activity level does not deter academics. The Residence Life staff maintains quiet hours, enforces University policies, and emphasizes the importance of academics and respect for the residence hall community. A study room connected to the lobby provides study space suitable for independent or group study, and social events occur on weekends to avoid conflict with classes.
Clay/Davis provides for a positive study environment while challenging students to consider their personal and professional vocations and healthy use of leisure time.
