Students moving into their residence hallsSUMMER MOVE-IN

We are very excited you will be staying with us in Aggieland this summer!

Whether you are new to college life or just continuing your studies during the summer, we want to help make your experience as smooth as possible. Don’t forget to check your TAMU email frequently so you don’t miss important emails – like more detailed instructions for move in based on your building or hall.

This page contains information for Summer School. If you are looking for Guest Apartments please visit our Conference and Guest Services pages.

Need to Apply for Summer Housing?


The University Apartments offers 1, 2 and 4 bedroom apartments for approximately 2,100 students and students with families who want the benefits of living on-campus but are looking for something different than traditional residence hall living for the summer. Apply for summer apartment living in the myHousing Portal. If you are a current resident in the Gardens or White Creek Apartments and need to extend your 9 1/2 month contract to a 12 month contract, log in to myHousing Portal to request this change.
