Director Welcome

Welcome from the Director of Residential Life:

Greetings from Tennessee Tech and the Office of Residential Life and welcome to campus housing.

We are very pleased that you have chosen to live with us on campus.  We believe that you will find campus living to be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.  Being a part of a positive learning community, which is also directed towards involvement and connections can have a direct correlation to your success and satisfaction at school.  Studies indicate that the more connected a student is to school the better chance you will have for success.  Living on campus is a great opportunity for expanding students’ opportunities for campus connections. Whether it is getting involved in Village/Hall Council, getting to know and becoming friends with the many diverse members of your floor, working with your Faculty Head or just developing a relationship with your roommate.  These relationships & involvements can often be life-long experiences that you will remember fondly well after you have graduated and are working in your career.

As you review our web-site you will be able to find the different housing options that we offer, including more specific information about each hall or apartment.  Whether it be a renovated traditional hall, a newer hall with private bathrooms or one of our apartments, we believe that you will have a positive experience that can extend well past college.

Wishing you a great semester,

Josh Edmonds
Residential Life Director
