Tharp Hall is located at the heart of campus on the Pedestrian Mall. Residents enjoy close proximity to classroom buildings, the Deacon Jones Dining Hall, and the Paul Conn Student Union. Four students occupy a two-bedroom suite with a shared bathroom. The bathrooms include a toilet and a combination bathtub-shower. Each bedroom has two extra-long twin beds, two desks with chairs, two to three closets, and a sink/vanity. Each floor of this three-story building has its own coin/card-operated laundry facility and a TV lounge area complete with furniture, a television, and a community kitchen. The community kitchens are equipped with a refrigerator, a microwave, and a stove/oven. A unique feature of Tharp Hall is that it is connected by a hallway to Nora Chambers and Simmons Hall.

Meet the Resident Director: McKenzie Parris
During my undergrad at Lee, Residential Life and Housing was the place that I found a home and learned the beauty, challenge, and joy of living in community. My Resident Assistants and Chaplains were an integral part to my success and growth while at Lee, and as a Resident Director I have the chance to imitate their support by loving and advocating for students while they learn how to engage with their community and the world around them. I love walking with students in the big and small moments of their lives and cheering them on every step of the way. Ultimately, my hope is that every student feels that this place can be a home for them and that they are safe to grow here.
