If there are specific people you would like to room with during your NSC, please make sure to check-in for conference housing together.

Family members should make their own lodging arrangements in the Galveston community.  No parent or other family member will be allowed to stay in the TAMUG residence halls during New Student Conferences.

Please use the Conference Housing for Students and Conference Lodging for Families links to the side to aid you as you prepare for your New Student Conference.
