Residence Halls

The residence halls at Truett-McConnell College are geared to support the education of the whole student. Truett-McConnell College offers four traditional residence halls and two apartment style housing. Each residence hall is staffed with Resident Assistants and Resident Directors to offer support to the residents and provide an environment conducive to academic progress. The community that is formed among residents promises strong bonds of friendship and camaraderie.
Traditional-age, single students are required to live in the residence halls and purchase Board (meal) plan for the college dining hall. Exceptions are made for students from White County and the surrounding counties who live with their parents or legal guardians. On campus housing is avalible for full-time students age 24 and younger.

All dorms have a common lobby, card access laundry facilities, vending machines, and community bathrooms. Cable, telephone and Internet connections are at no extra cost. Each room houses two people.  All housing is staffed by a Resident Director and Resident Assistants.

Each applicant is mailed a housing application by the Admissions Office upon his or her acceptance. The completed housing application, along with a room deposit, should be returned to the Admissions Office.  

Transfer and first time students' housing forms are placed in date order by the date the Residence Life office receives their room deposit. If an upperclassman requests a particular incoming student as his/her roommate, that student will be placed immediately. However, if the Director of Residence Life does not have a match to the requested name, the slot will be filled at the Director of Residence Life's discretion.

All first-time college students are required to live in the traditional residence halls during fall semester. Incoming students' roommate requests will be granted as long as the form of the requested person is in the housing office and space is available.

Next, the incoming students will be given room assignments by date order and availability. All aspects of the housing form questionnaire, logistics, availability, and status will be taken into account.   

Room Changes
Room change requests start 15th day of classes during fall semester. Further room changes will take place only between semesters. Room changes may be made only with the proper authorization and paperwork submitted prior to the move. Anyone taking it upon himself/herself to change rooms without the above qualifications will be assessed a fee and will be required to move back into the room originally assigned.
Residence hall issues, such as roommate conflicts and maintenance problems, should be brought to the attention of the Resident Assistant, who may involve the Resident Director and/ or Director of Residence Life.


As a part of our general philosophy to educate the "whole person,” each residence hall will present a minimum of three residence hall programs per semester in the following areas: educational, social, spiritual, instructional, and/or service project.


The Residence Life staff seeks to respond to the needs and interests of the residential community in developing programs that are interesting, timely, and educational in quality. Although the residence hall programs are not mandatory, each resident is encouraged to attend and get involved. Occasionally, residence hall programs will be open to residents of the other residence halls on the campus.

Some of the hall programs that have taken place within the last two years include these:


  • Holiday Parties
  • Secret Sister Program
  • Sports Tournaments
  • Video Game Tournaments
  • Cookouts and Pool Parties
  • Self-defense class
  • Line Dancing Lessons
  • UGA/UF Tailgate Party
  • Golf Tournament
  • Video Scavenger Hunt
  • Christian Concerts
  • Monday Night Football
  • 5 Love Languages Lecture
  • Canned Food Drive
  • "Paint-A-Brick"
  • Many, many more . . .


Residents are encouraged to take an active role in the planning and implementation of the residence hall programming opportunities.
