The University of Texas at Tyler Residence Life

On-Campus Housing and Dining


HOUSING                                                        Check Out Campus Life

UT Tyler is home to more than 1,700 resident students who live in Ornelas Hall, Patriot Village, University Pines, Liberty Landing or Victory Village.

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 and at facility parking (see parking rules and regulations here). 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).

(Beginning Summer 2022 pets are no longer allowed in any campus housing facility. SAR registered ESA and Service Animals will be the only authorized animals in housing.)

 

Room type, Facility and Roommate requests are not guaranteed.

A bed space is guaranteed to every student who completes the housing application process,

signs a housing contract and pays the prepayment and application fee as long as space is available.
