Student Housing reaches beyond having a safe, affordable, comfortable place to live on campus. It’s about the people you meet and the experiences students have as they go through the academic year together. The informal social, support network that forms between residents contributes to a rewarding and memorable experience. The student experience is further enhanced by a variety of programs offered by the Residence Life staff.
Residing in student housing brings the advantages of greater interaction with peers, faculty, student and learning services, and an increased level of social/extra-curricular involvement resulting in an overall higher rate of student success. We invite students to take advantage of the opportunities, challenges and new experiences student housing has to offer.
Thomas University requires a record of immunization for students residing in housing and students enrolled in Nursing and Medical Laboratory Science programs. Measles, mumps, and rubella immunizations are required. Tetanus-diphtheria, varicella, hepatitis B, and meningitis vaccinations are recommended. Georgia law requires that you receive a meningitis vaccination or waive this immunization. Resident students failing to submit necessary documentation may be prohibited from entering campus until such paperwork is received. The record of immunization will be kept on file and will be valid throughout the tenure of the student’s enrollment. This policy is in place to ensure that students are protected against communicable diseases that are preventable and to reduce the likelihood of an epidemic or threatened epidemic on the Thomas University campus.
