POLICIES & HOW-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Applying for Housing Applications

Applying for housing at Texas A&M University is done by logging into myHousing Portal using your NetID and password. Don’t have a NetID and password? Visit the Howdy Portal and select Activate Your Account. The Housing Application usually opens in mid-September.

You should refer to our Applications, Rates, & Policies page for information that is helpful to know before starting your online housing application, then choose the tab below that best describes the type of housing you wish to apply for.

If you have questions navigating through the portal or you believe there is an error, please contact us at 888.451.3896

Step 1: Apply for Housing

On-campus housing has something to offer everyone. To begin, log into myHousing Portal at oncampusaggies.tamu.edu using your NetID and password, click on Housing Application, and follow the step-by-step on-screen instructions outlined below.

Step 2: Provide Your Preferences

There is no one-size-fits-all on campus. Your individual and personal preferences guide your experience through the application, assignment, and living experience. Below are some ways you provide your preferences that aid Residence Life in finding your perfect place on campus.

1. Apply for Living Learning Programs

We make joining a Living Learning Program easy! Some LLPs are major-specific, college-specific, scholarship-based, or have other criteria for membership. Take a few minutes and explore what these tight-knit communities have to offer.

If you decide to join an LLP, the common LLP Application is right after you complete your Housing Application within myHousing Portal. The portal will display a screen called Living Learning Programs and show a list of all available communities.

2. Research Your Housing Options

Both residence halls and university apartments are available to students at Texas A&M University. The next step in the Housing Application within myHousing Portal will be to provide your housing style preferences. Residence Life collects this information in the event you do not choose your own room and we need to manually assign you. We encourage you to take a look at all we have to offer.

Residence Life offers six different types or styles of residence hall living: ramp-style, balcony-style, corridor-style, commons-style, modular-style, and Hullabaloo Hall. These living styles feature many of the same amenities, but each differs in concept. Not only will we ask you for your hall preference, but also your room type.

We also offer an extraordinary apartment community at the heart of the Aggie experience. Our fully-furnished White Creek Apartments community is on west campus near the Agriculture and Life Sciences Buildings and White Creek. When choosing White Creek Apartments, we will ask you to provide your floor plan preferences.

Please know that your preference does not guarantee your desired housing style will be available at the time you select or are issued a housing assignment. In the event you do not make a room selection, we will do our best to match your preferences throughout our process.

3. Search For & Select Roommate(s)

Some students may not want to go ‘potluck’. As a service to students, Residence Life offers a robust roommate search and selection feature within myHousing Portal. In order to successfully complete room/apartment selection process (if applicable), students are encouraged to read and follow directions on each screen in the portal. Please keep in mind that the portal will only show you floor plans and housing options for which you are eligible, based on your student classification, gender, living learning program, etc. Roommate Selection opens early-mid February. Specific dates will be in our Events Calendar as soon as they are available.

4. Special Requests & Accommodations

Residence Life encourages students with disabilities to participate in all campus activities and commits to providing supportive services that assist students in fully engaging all aspects of an Aggie education. This includes, of course, meeting specific housing needs of students with disabilities or additional needs whenever possible. Students with disabilities or who have additional needs are assigned roommates in the same manner as all other residence hall and/or applicants unless they are specifically recommended for a single room and one is available at the time their application is processed.

Step 3: Select Your Room

You’re in control! In May, you will receive an email to be prepared on your assigned date and time to select your room.

You can find your selection date and time in myHousing Portal. Selection dates and times are normally shared one week before your room selection period begins.

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. 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 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 in order to receive your key upon check-in. Check your Texas A&M email over the summer for specific instructions.

White Creek Residents Only – Schedule Move-In Appointment

We work with our White Creek 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 5: Move-In

We are very excited to welcome you to Residence Life at Texas A&M University!

To help make your transition to college life as smooth as possible, move-in information will be posted on our website throughout the summer. 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 based on your apartment or hall.

Information about early move-in, early-arrival requests, what to bring, what not to bring, and important dates for residence halls and White Creek Apartments can be found on our Move-In Information page. Of course, you can always contact the appropriate office if you have additional questions or concerns before you arrive. We will see you in Aggieland!

Step 2: Receive Assignment

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.
