College Houses

The College Houses, although physically located off-campus, are still considered on-campus housing for residential students.  There are 9 houses in total, with 3 of them located on Carlton Avenue and the other 6 located on Pennington Road.  The College Houses are maintained by the Trenton State College Corporation .


Hausdoerffer and Phelps Halls

Phelps Hall and Hausdoerffer Hall, opened in 2009, are the first apartment complexes on our campus. Twin buildings, each building has 40 air-conditioned apartments housing approximately 200 students. The units are mostly 5 bedroom (3 singles and 1 double), partial kitchen, living room, bathroom, and an extra vanity sink.

Other features of these apartments include a large community lounge as well as a study lounge in the laundry room, equipped with cable television.

The units have a semi-private courtyard and share a grassy park.


Townhouses East, South, & West

All three townhouses feature units that house 10 students, all with single bedrooms. Each townhouse is air-conditioned and has a main living room. There is a bathroom, shower, full refrigerator, microwave, on all three floors with a common area sink.

On the first floor of each townhouse there is a furnished house lounge, including a table, chairs, sofa and love seat.

Laundry facilities, hall offices and main lounges (with a full kitchen) are available in the complex as well.
