Residence Hall: Dixon Hall

The Transfer Community is a Special Interest Group for on campus transfer students. Students have the opportunity to connect with other transfer students, participate in variety of activities throughout the year that were designed to connect them to the Kutztown University community and all its resources, and assist with their overall transition. As a member of the Transfer Community, students will also be taking part in a variety of experiences throughout the year that were designed to meet the needs of incoming transfer students.  

As a member of the Transfer Community Special Interest Group, you agree to participate in the following opportunities:          

  • Attend weekly Transfer Community Meetings
  • Attend monthly Mentor/Mentee Social
  • Meet with the Transfer Community Advisor individually once during the semester
  • Attend one "Bears At Night Program"
  • Attend one Community Assistant/Hall Council Program
  • Attend one Hall Council Meeting    

Tau Sigma Mentor/Mentee Partnership A unique opportunity we are able to provide those students who signed up to live in the Transfer Interest Community is an upper-class student mentor from our partner organization Tau Sigma. Tau Sigma is a National Honors Society exclusively for Transfer Students. Some students who are participating in the Transfer Community experience, but not living in the community may have the opportunity to have an upper-class mentor, but this is based on availability. Students assigned mentors are expected to:

  • Meet with their mentor three times per semester
  • Attend monthly Mentor/Mentee Social

All interested students should apply through their portal. The application can be found under the forms and applications tab. If you have any questions, please contact
