Aggieland is home to the largest uniformed corps of cadets in the country – outside of the Service Academies.
The Department of Residence Life through the Corps Area Housing Office administers on-campus housing for the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M University.
Accommodations for approximately 2,600 students are currently available in 12 halls on the Corps of Cadets Quad. Members of the Corps must reside in the Corps residence halls unless approved by the Commandant because they are married, living at home with family (in Bryan/College Station), or have prior military service.

Corps of Cadets History
The Corps Halls were constructed in 1939. During construction, cadets referred to the site as the “new area.” Today, the location of the Corps Halls is referred to as the Corps Quadrangle or “Quad” for short.
Renovations to the Corps dormitories would take place in the late 1960s, early 1980s with smaller renovation projects in the early 1990s. In 2015 – 2017 a major renovation of the Corps Halls took place with the addition of connector buildings.
