Important Housing Application Information!

  • This process is for NEW to TAMUG students only. Prospective residents must have submitted an application for admission to TAMUG and have a UIN (University identification Number) before beginning the housing application process.  *It may take up to one week after submitting an application for admission before you will be able to apply for housing.

  • Returning students will fill-out an online survey each semester and will indicate their intent to return or not return to campus housing. Contact Residence Life for more information.

  • 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.  Only those applications received before March 1st are guaranteed to receive housing. Prospective students MAY submit housing application materials prior to acceptance to TAMUG. 

  • You will sign the housing contract as part of your application process. Please pay attention to the details of this contract, it is a contract for a full-year of on-campus housing, and is a legally-binding contract.

  • The housing deposit is $300, payable by credit, debit, or e-check only online. The deposit is NOT applied toward semester housing fees; it is similar to a damage deposit. For any concerns regarding payment of this deposit, please contact Residence Life at reslife@tamug.edu or (409) 740-4445. 

  • For students new to TAMUG, you may cancel your on-campus housing contract and application prior to May 1st and receive a full refund of the housing deposit. Cancellations received between May 2 and May 15 will receive a 25% (or $75) refund. Any cancellations after May 15 will NOT receive a deposit refund.

  • Requests to cancel the housing application must be made to the Office of Residence Life ONLY, in writing, to reslife@tamug.edu or in-person at the Office of Residence Life.

  • Accuracy is important in completing this application. It is best for students to complete the housing application and preferences as they typically know their habits and schedule best.

  • Students are encouraged to submit a request for a roommate; both students must list each other on their housing application before a request will be considered. If you find a roommate preference after completing your application you may contact Residence Life to make changes. While it is not possible to honor all requests, Residence Life makes every attempt to consider all requests.

  • If you have any changes to your application after completion, you may contact Residence Life.

  • All students living in on-campus housing are required to purchase a 15 or 19 Meal Plan.  For more information about pricing and meal plans, please click here.
