The University of Texas at Tyler Residence Life
On-Campus Housing and Dining
Located on campus, all five housing facilities are conveniently a few minutes' walk from your classes, the library, student center and recreational facilities. Each housing facility is designed especially with UT Tyler students in mind and offers first-class living arrangements. Students interested in living on campus are encouraged to apply early.
UT Tyler Residence Life takes each student's safety very seriously and provides staff members on call 24 hours a day. In addition, university police patrol the buildings multiple times day and night.
Students who have completed fewer than 60 credit hours at any junior college or university, including UT Tyler, are required to live on campus if facilities are available. AP credit, credit-by-exam tests, and dual credit earned while in high school do not count toward this total. The University is entitled to check the student's criminal history record and will notify the student if this information is used to deny them housing (Texas Government Code, Section 411.094).
Student move-in begins at 9 am Thursday before start of class each semester.
