Students in TIUA live in dormitories located in 11 sites within both the TIUA and Willamette University campuses. Classes are held in both campuses, which are connected by the "Bridge of Friendship." Meanwhile, students can use the cafeterias, gymnasium, library, and stores within the Willamette University, and participate in events such as concerts and dance parties.
