The Residence Life Department offers a wide range of housing options for students to experience during their time at Tabor. The group-living experience is an important element of a wellrounded college life. The living arrangements are designed to develop community. It’s where students can find meaningful relationships with roommates and others that can last a lifetime. Throughout the semester, the Residence Life Staff offers a variety of activities and social events for each housing area. Each hall is staffed by a residence director and resident assistants to maintain a safe/healthy environment for all students.
The following are housing options:
Residence Halls (Female/Male)
Primarily designed for first year and other new students, but are open to all students. The residence halls are designed in units of less than 25 students per floor. Most are arranged in modules of eight students.
Dakota & Harms (Male)
Open to students with at least sophomore status. Both buildings are located on the north side of campus and offer double and triple rooms. Both areas have living room/lounge areas.
Townhouses & Tabor Houses (Female/Male)
Open to students with at least junior status. Each townhouse offers a suite styled living area with several double rooms and common restrooms, kitchens and living rooms. Houses are Tabor owned and are all within close walking distance to all areas of campus.
Theme Houses (Female/Male)
Theme housing is an option for students with common academic and extra-curricular interests. It is intended to be a formative living and learning community designed to integrate students’ residential, academic and extra-curricular experiences. Themes for a living community might focus on a common extra curricular activity, academic major, campus organization or common interest. Residents of a theme house meet weekly to discuss their interests and make valuable contributions to the broader community by providing various programs/events focused on their particular theme.
