Residential Living - University Housing Requirement

Requirements

West Texas A&M University is committed to your success. We believe that living on campus plays a significant role in connecting you to the University experience while helping you reach your academic goals. Therefore, we have established a University housing requirement that reflects our philosophy.


Housing Requirement

Full-time students who are under 21 years of age and who have accrued fewer than 60 post high school credit hours* are required to live in University housing.

*College credit hours earned while attending high school (dual credit courses, advanced placement, CLEP, etc.) are not considered.

The housing requirement applies to new, transfer, relocating, and re-enrolling students. Students who fail to comply with the housing requirement may have their registration denied or canceled, a hold placed on their student account, and housing charges posted to their account.

Housing exemptions are considered but rarely granted.


Housing Agreement

The housing agreement is valid for one academic year (fall and spring), unless a student begins in the spring semester. The agreement cannot be canceled mid-year while the student is enrolled.


Meal Plan Requirement

Students residing on campus are required to purchase a meal plan if, prior to the first class day, he/she meets one of the following criteria:

  • Under the age of 21
  • Less than 45 credit hours (earned after high school graduation)


Meal Plan Changes

Meal plans may be changed without an exemption prior to the first class day of each semester. With an approved meal plan exemption, meals plans can be changed through the 12th class day of each semester. Meal plan exemption requests are not accepted after the 12th class day.
