Residence Life

Our residence halls are wonderful examples of Gothic charm on the outside, but quite contemporary on the inside. Students have an enormous range of options, each unique in design and layout, from the Spann Place Townhouses to our West Village apartments. Most residences house fewer than 100 students, and each has its own special features.

While we require on-campus housing for the first three years, a large majority of students remain for the convenience, security, and social advantages of community living. The majority of Rhodes students live on campus, and they enjoy laundry, parking, and Wi-Fi at no additional cost. And since students’ key fobs provide access to all residences, they are free to enjoy the common areas in any hall, including study rooms, kitchens, lounges, social rooms with pool tables, and TVs.

Incoming first-year students receive their housing assignments in late July.

Spring Break 2021 (March 1-2)

All residence halls are open. RAs will be available from 10 p.m. - 2 a.m. if you need assistance, as is Campus Safety at 901-843-3880.
