Don’t Forget!

You can apply for housing immediately after you apply for admission to the university. You don’t have to wait until you are officially admitted.

Getting started

Living on campus is one of the best ways to get the full “Lumberjack experience,” from forming lifelong friendships to participating in on-campus social activities and learning opportunities. We think on-campus living is so important that we require students to live on campus until they have earned 60 hours or turn 21 years old.

Housing Requirements

You are required to live on campus if you are under 21 or have less than 60 earned hours. If you live within a 60 mile-radius of campus, you can apply for an off-campus permit.

Applying for housing: A few simple steps

  1. Complete your residence hall application and contract (see application process below).
  2. Submit your $100 residence hall deposit with your completed application.
  3. Submit your meningitis shot records to Admissions (fax 936-468-3149).
