Welcome Prospective and New Sea Aggies!
Applying for On-Campus Housing
The housing application, a $250 deposit, and proof of meningitis vaccination must be submitted to the Office of Residence Life before assignments for housing will be made. The deposit is NOT applied toward semester housing fees; it is similar to a damage deposit and is refundable once the student has left TAMUG.
Submitting all housing application materials does NOT guarantee the availability of space or admission to TAMUG. We recommend applying for housing at the earliest possible time as space fills quickly. Potential students MAY submit housing application materials prior to acceptance to TAMUG. Students may submit a request for a roommate; both students must list each other on their housing application before a request will be considered.
Bacterial Meningitis Vaccinations
Texas House Bill 4189 requires that incoming students who live on campus must provide either evidence of vaccination against bacterial meningitis or a signed affidavit declining the vaccination prior to living on campus. Students will not receive a housing assignment (Fall, Spring, or Summer) until one of these two documents is received by the Department of Residence Life. Specific information on how to provide this documentation will be provided by the university after a student has been admitted and has applied for housing.
General Information About Living On-Campus at TAMUG
All TAMUG students are required to live in on-campus housing and participate in a meal plan, as long as space is available.
Students sign a nine-month contract and reside on campus for both the Fall and Spring semesters. Students over the age of 21 on the first day of class, active duty veterans of US Armed Forces, married students, those residing with their parents, or students enrolled in 9 credit-hours or less may request permission to live off-campus from the Director of Student Life.
Texas A&M University at Galveston has
three Residence Halls for our traditional students: Hullabaloo, Oceans,
and Mariner Halls. Students enrolling in the US Maritime Service License
Option Program or Naval ROTC typically reside in Albatross or Polaris
Hall. Additionally, one company usually resides in Mariner Hall.
Hullabaloo and Oceans are more traditional residence halls with interior
hallways and double occupancy rooms. Rooms in Mariner are comparable
in size, however rooms open to outside hallways. Except for one floor in
Hullabaloo, all rooms are suited, and share a private bathroom with
another room. Rooms on the 2nd floor of Hullabaloo have private
baths. Albatross and Polaris rooms have private baths, and also include a
small kitchenette including a refrigerator, microwave, small stove-top,
and kitchen table with two chairs.
