POLICIES & HOW-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Summer Housing

During the summer, Texas A&M University offers safe, convenient, and affordable housing in Aggieland for students. Our residence halls and apartments are located in some of the most convenient locations on campus with easy access to programs and services Texas A&M University has to offer over the summer.

In order to live on campus, you must be enrolled at Texas A&M University – College Station.

Step 1: Apply for Housing

If you plan on living in on-campus housing for Summer 1, Summer 2, or Summer 1 & 2 terms, you will need to complete a Summer Housing Application by logging into myHousing Portal at oncampusaggies.tamu.edu using your Net ID and password and following the on-screen prompts. Don’t have a NetID and password? Visit the Howdy Portal and select Activate Your Account.

Step 2: Provide Your Preferences

Summer School Housing

Summer School Housing is offered in White Creek Apartments. Room/furniture dimensions and photos are available on the White Creek Apartments page.

You will be able to choose from the following preferences for the White Creek Apartments:

      • Current White Creek residents having a Spring 2019 and Fall 2019 assignment will stay in their same room
      • All other Summer School residents will be assigned to one of the following apartment styles:
        • 4 bedroom/4 bath
        • 4 bedroom/2 bath

You will be able to request a roommate under the roommate preference feature of the application. We do not use the roommate finder service for Summer, but you can put in a specific student’s name, if you know someone you would like to live with. This is optional and roommates are not guaranteed, however we do our best to accommodate all requests.

Summer Gateway Housing

Summer Gateway Housing is offered in Moses Hall. Legett Hall will also be used if additional space is needed. Room/furniture dimensions and photos are available on the individual hall pages.

You will be able to choose from the following preferences for Moses and Legett:

      • Double room – two people per room; will share a bathroom with up to three other people
      • Single room – no roommate; will share a bathroom with up to two other people

You will be able to request a roommate under the roommate preference feature of the application. We do not use the roommate finder service for Summer, but you can put in a specific student’s name, if you know someone you would like to live with. This is optional and roommates are not guaranteed, however we do our best to accommodate all requests.

Step 3: Receive Your Assignment

All Summer term housing is assigned by the Housing Assignments Office. You will be assigned based on your priority date which is the date your housing application was completed. You will receive your assignment via email before the Summer terms start.

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. 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 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 excited that you will be living on-campus in College Station during the summer terms. Information about move-in, what to bring, what not to bring, rates, important dates, and parking maps are available on our Summer Move-In Information page.  If you have any questions before you arrive on campus, please contact the appropriate office. We will see you in Aggieland!
