Student rooms are suite style, (i.e., two double rooms sharing a bath). During the fall semester, tripled rooms are located in this community, so there is a potential for a room with three roommates.

Tigers Serving Others was originally named the Project Serve floor when it first began in Fall 2010. In 2011, the name was changed to Tigers Serving Others to encompass both Project Serve participants and residents who have a passion for community service and want to reside in a community that continues to learn and participate in service throughout the year.
