Residence Requirement

All entering students are required to live on campus or in other TCU authorized housing for their first two academic years (freshman and sophomore), subject to the following exceptions:

  • Students who are 21 years or older as of the first day of classes for the fall semester;
  • Students who are married; and
  • Students who will continue to live with their parents or legal guardian.

Students enrolled for less than nine hours may live in a residence hall only with special permission from the Office of Residential Services. Housing contracts apply to the entire academic year. Short-term housing contracts for the fall semester are accepted only from graduating seniors or students participating in a University-sponsored study abroad program. Students under 17 or over 25 are housed by special permission only on a space-available basis.
