The Department of Housing & Residence Life provides a living, learning environment that promotes an academic and personal experience for residents. All three residence halls are centrally located on campus. Barringer, Orlowitz and Martin are safe, attractive, and comfortable facilities in an atmosphere that contributes to students' academic success. Living on campus will enhance your Jefferson experience – on campus residents have the opportunity to meet students outside of their academic programs and benefit from the close proximity to classes and the hospital. 

In addition to being close to the university and hospital, the residence halls are also located within a short walking distance of many restaurants, stores, transportation centers and other city landmarks. We look forward to having you on-campus!

Why I live @ Jeff

Nancy Tang

"I love living at TJU because there are always events or activities throughout the week hosted by various organizations/ departments (including DHRL) and I can easily partake by being on-campus. Most events are free, have food or snacks, and help me to stay involved. It's also a plus to be able to walk to class or the library in less than five minutes!"

Lisa Petruzzelli

"Living on campus has allowed me to connect with new friends, focus more time on my studies, while also allowing me to get more involved on campus and in the Jefferson community. DHRL makes you feel right at home with such friendly and welcoming staff. Living on campus was the best decision I ever made, and I cannot wait to be a part of the DHRL family next year!"

Emily Ott

"I like how close I am to the library and feel safe walking home late after a long night of studying. I also like the close approximation to city nightlife. There is always so much to do within a mile radius of my apartment."

Pinterest recently held a contest at TJU for a residence hall room makeover. One resident was fortunate enough to have her room transformed into something amazing by pinning her ideas to Pinterest.
