Towers East is dedicated to New Student single occupancy rooms. Each floor is gender-specific (either all-male or all-female). Towers’ community-style living offers a friendly environment that makes it easy to meet people, get involved, build friendships, and establish your Southeast family.  

Towers East is a community-style residence hall, meaning each floor shares a bathroom and shower room with private stalls. Each room comes furnished with a bed, desk, chair, clothing storage as well as a sink for getting ready or washing dishes. Every floor has a lounge where you’ll find a TV, microwave, and comfortable furniture for hanging out with floormates as well as Resident Assistants (RA) throughout the building.

*A private room is a double room with the other side bought out so the student will not have a roommate. These are only granted through the lottery process held in January for returning students; then based upon availability within the residence halls through the room change process. N/A indicates that a private room is not an option for this building.
