In 2005 and 2007, TMI opened the Abbott, Bailey, and Ewing Halsell residence halls. Located on the north side of campus, each residence hall features a common room, washers and dryers, custom furniture, granite bathroom countertops, and polished concrete floors. The three halls are in close proximity and within each house, the students and staff create a unique identity for their residence within the larger residential life community.
Under the house model, these residence halls are the foundation of both the developmental and college prep/independent programs. Within the house model, students are able to learn and grow, gaining greater independence as they progress through their studies at TMI. By the time they graduate, students are prepared for the independence and responsibilities that come with a college setting.
Student dorm rooms are equipped with built-in desks, ceiling fans, and closet systems. Each hall also features an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) equipped room.
