All cadets (except for those identified by the Commandant) are required to live on campus in Corps Housing while an active member of the Corps of Cadets.  Only the Commandant can approve additional exceptions such as outfits V-1 & Delta Company (and only under special circumstances such as married cadets and previous military service cadets.).

Any changes to your assignment will be coordinated between the Corps Area Housing Office and the Corps Operations & Training office. Due to the changing nature of units and outfits, housing assignments are subject to change.

Room assignments are based on:

    1. Gender Integrity – Cadets share a room only with another cadet of the same gender.
    2. Unit, Staff and Class Integrity – A cadet shares a room with a cadet in the same unit and class. Crowded conditions or special circumstances may dictate that cadets of different years and units can room together.

Step 4: Complete Annual Housing Orientation

What does it mean to live on campus? Well, it’s a lot more than having a place to sleep. It’s your home while you’re here. The place where you hang out with friends/family. Talk to your roommates. Study. Kick back. Relax. Store your stuff. Sleep. Eat. It’s your own space.

On-campus living has a lot of built-in support resources and staff to support you during your time at Texas A&M. We are a diverse community  with our own standards and rules.

For that reason, we ask all students living in our on-campus communities to complete the Annual Housing Orientation. To do this, after you select a room and we have confirmed your reservation, the Annual Housing Orientation menu item will appear in myHousing Portal.

You will need to have completed this orientation to receive your key upon check-in. Check your Texas A&M email over the summer for specific instructions.

We work with our Gardens Apartments residents to schedule a move-in appointment. This enables us to make sure everything is ready for your arrival. Choose a day and time for your arrival within myHousing Portal after you complete the Annual Housing Orientation. Keep in mind that if you arrive before the published move-in dates, you may be charged a daily fee for your early arrival.

Step 6: Move-In

Don’t forget to check your Texas A&M email frequently so you don’t miss important emails  such as more detailed instructions for move-in to the Gardens Apartments.
