I am not sure what the "Living & Learning Villages" are, how do I get more information? (back to top)
"Living and Learning Villages" have been established at many universities nationwide and provide an opportunity for students to get involved within their campus community. Each year TTU establishes a new "Village" focused around a common theme. Students living on or off campus are encouraged to participate.

If you are an incoming Transfer student starting TTU in the Spring semester then you may sign up for Spring Orientation once your admission to the University is complete. This is similar to our Fall Transfer Orientation session and is condensed to help new transfer students to quickly adjust to our campus.
