On Campus Housing
Living on campus at Texas A&M University-Kingsville is more than a fun choice - it is an opportunity to expand your social life and find a sense of community.
Whether you're looking for a study partner or someone to play video games with, you'll never have to go too far. Want to flashback to your childhood? Create bunk beds with your roommate! Looking for new and interesting people to chat with? Leave your door open and see who pops in! Life in the dorms introduces you to a diverse group of friendly and interesting people. It also gives you a chance to show your creative side as you and your roommate decide how to decorate.
One of the best advantages is the close proximity to your classes. You won't have to worry about driving around looking for a parking spot, and if you accidentally press the snooze button too many times on your alarm, you can roll out of bed and still make it to class on time.
Your location will also make it easier to be involved in campus organizations, puts you close to a variety of dining options, and ensures that you always have something to do, whether it be attending a sporting event, theater performance, or other social gathering.
Share a room or suite with your best friend or someone within your age group, classification and/or major. We offer two or four bedroom apartment-living style rooms. If you are at least 22 years of age or have more than 90 credit hours, you can apply for automatic private room assignments in Lewis Hall.
Living Learning Communities: We offer Living Learning Communities (LLC) in our residence halls so you can live, study and develop friendships with students who share your interests. Current LLCs include agriculture and wildlife, biology, engineering, English, health and fitness, math, music, fashionista, honors, and technology areas of study.

Your safety is important! The university has its own on-campus police department employing full-time police officers and emergency phones are located throughout the campus, including one outside each residence hall. These phones offer a direct line to the University Police.
Living on campus gives you an important opportunity to discover the full university experience and be successful throughout your college career. That is why we require students that have completed less than 30 hours of course work or are younger than 20 years of age to live on campus for one academic year.
