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. Students are free to enjoy the common areas in any hall, including study rooms, kitchens, lounges, social rooms with pool tables, and TVs.

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.

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

Halls open for First-Year students on Thursday, August 19, 2021.

Halls open for returning students on Sunday, August 22, 2021.

End of the Fall Semester: Halls Close for Winter Recess, December 16, 2021. at 10 a.m.

Spring 2022: Halls will open on Sunday, January 9, 2022, at 9:00 a.m.

All students must be out of the Residence Halls unless they have received approval to stay for Winter Recess, Fall 2021, by Aretha Milligan, Director of Residence Life. The approval would need to have been emailed on or before November 30. (milligana@rhodes.edu). There is a fee to stay and the resident must live in East Village A or B, Voorhies, Voorhies-Townsend, Trezevant, or Townsend. No other hall will be opened during this time.
