A few typically asked questions about Residence Life rules can be found below:

Can I paint my room?

Students are permitted to paint their residence hall room, provided the room is returned to the original paint color and condition at check-out, and approval is granted from Residence Life.  All painting is fully at cost to the student.  If a room is not returned to its original condition upon check-out, the student(s) will be fined.

Can I build a loft in my room?

No. Our furniture is designed in a way that students are able to loft their beds with the furniture that is already provided in the room. Do not bring your own lofting materials.

What is the alcohol rule?

Texas A&M University at Galveston is a dry campus and all alcohol along with any alcohol containers or containers that may have at one time contained or transported alcohol are strictly prohibited. This policy applies to anyone on-campus, including those over the age of 21.

Is smoking allowed?

Vaping along with any other smoking device and all tobacco product is strictly not allowed within any campus building.
