Living on campus is truly a unique experience. Students have the opportunity to be actively involved in their education and develop lifelong friendships.
WTAMU has ten residence halls, each offering multiple features. Each fall, more than 1,800 students experience life on campus. The Office of Residential Living strives to create an on-campus environment which will provide students with opportunities to succeed academically and to develop the interpersonal skills which will assist them for their lifetime.
National research shows that college students who live on campus:
- earn higher grade point averages
- are more likely to graduate in four years
- have a higher retention rate than those living off campus
- are more satisfied with their overall college experience
In addition to this, a great deal of learning takes place outside of the classroom. Much of this engaged learning occurs in the residence halls where students are challenged by major life questions and are learning about themselves and how to live well with others. Living on campus allows students to transition into adulthood in a safe, supportive environment.
West Texas A&M University is committed to the success of each student. Due to the excellent benefits of living on campus and the fact that WTAMU believes that living on campus plays a significant role in the success of students, the University has developed Housing and Meal Plan Requirements.
