Campus Housing & Dining
To better ensure the health and safety of our Cardinals as they join us on campus, TVCC has decided the best practice is to reduce our on-campus housing availability. Spring housing applications will open Nov 2.
Trinity Valley Community College offers housing on the Athens campus to students. Each dormitory is conveniently located near classrooms, cafeteria, library, and student center. All dormitories have heat and air conditioning. The lounge/reception area in each building contains color television, and soft drink machines. Laundry facilities are provided for each dormitory. Each dormitory has an adult director who lives in the dorm.
Only full-time students are eligible for housing in the TVCC dormitories. Rooms are rented on a double occupancy basis with semi-private bathrooms and are furnished with two of each: beds, chests, desks, and chairs. Each room has a cable hook-up with basic channels provided. Students are required to bring bed linens, pillows, towels, etc. Room and board packages include room rent, meal plan, and tax. Each dormitory resident is required to have a meal plan.

You must have been accepted for admission as a student to TVCC by submitting all required documentation and know your Cardinal ID and password, then you can complete the online housing application and background check release form (see top of page), pay the $225 deposit ($200 for the room; $25 non-refundable background check fee), and have a current (within the last 5 years) meningitis vaccine record on file. Each of these items must be received by the Housing Office before a reservation is official. Residents will be asked to complete a housing contract as a part of the check-in process.
The $200 room reservation/damage deposit will be refunded when cancellation occurs before the following dates: Summer I Semester-May 15; Summer II Semester-July 5; Fall Semester-August 15; Spring Semester-January 5. If cancellation occurs after these dates, NO refund will be made.
