Waiting List

The Placement list becomes long as the year progresses. Therefore newly admitted students should apply as soon as possible but should not depend solely upon occupying a campus apartment during their first year at DTS. New applicants for Swindoll Tower should explore off-campus options for back-up living arrangements. Please see Off-Campus Housing for more information.

Laundry Facilities

Laundry facilities are located on each floor in the building.


One parking space is allotted per bedroom (i.e. one-bedroom apartments are allotted one spot, the study does not count as bedroom. Two-bedroom apartments are allotted two spots).


The DTS Campus Police is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
