Welcome to Huston-Tillotson!  We look forward to providing our students an outstanding living and learning environment while attending HT.  The main objective of Residence Life here at HT, is to provide an educational and living environment that will encourage academic, cultural and social development.  We encourage our students to meet new people, share personal experiences and get involved in the residential community and on campus.  It is important that we provide a safe, clean living and learning atmosphere where students can thrive.   Please click on Newsletter on the left side of the page if you have questions as to what is or is not allowed to be brought into the residence halls.


Allen-Frazier Residence Hall

Its features include a wing of traditional, semi-private bedrooms with a sink in each room, and the general/community bathrooms and a wing of two bedroom suites with a bathroom in each suite. Furniture is built in and floors are tiled. Suites and private rooms are priced higher than traditional rooms. There is a computer lab available for residents and an on-site nurse’s office, which is located in the facility.

Both residence halls feature snack machines, free washers and dryers, kitchen, lobby monitors, TV lounge, wireless computer access, controlled security access, and a computer laboratory.


Personal Items Liability

Your university residential living experience, like your home, requires forethought about protecting personal belongings. Since HT assumes no liability for personal items that are lost, stolen, or damaged, students are strongly encouraged to purchase renter’s insurance to protect their belongings.

The University does not recommend or endorse any individual insurance company. However, the link below for National Student Services, Inc., is an example of a nationwide student property insurance company.

We strongly urge all students and their families to contact their insurance agents, check homeowner’s policies, and to consider purchasing renter’s insurance.



HT does not provide storage of students’ personal belongings at any time. Students are strongly encouraged to store items at an off-campus, reputable storage company. Off-campus storage is at the students’ risk as HT does not recommend or endorse any particular company.

Fall residential students may keep belongings in their assigned room over the winter break at their own risk if they will be residents in the spring. Expensive items such as computers, stereos, and televisions must be taken home over the break or stored at a reputable facility.


Safety and Security

Do not prop open front doors to buildings or let anyone without a key or access card enter the building after you

Do not allow anyone into the building if they are not your visitor and have not been properly signed in during visitation hours

Immediately report persons excessively loitering around the building to Campus Safety

Do not give friends your room key.

Do not walk alone after dark, and whenever possible, travel in groups

Communicate with your roommate. Let your roommate know where you are going and with whom you are traveling. Establishing a buddy system is vital with regards to personal safety. Also, talk to your roommate about personal safety concerns you may have.
