New Students


Students and scholars are responsible for making their own housing arrangements when arriving to TAMUK. The Office of International Student & Scholar Services is unable to make on or off-campus housing reservations for students; however, there are many housing options available in Kingsville.

On-Campus Housing 

We highly recommend that first-time attending students make arrangements to stay in our on-campus dormitories for at least the first term of school. To apply for on-campus housing, please visit our University Housing and Residence Life.

Off-Campus Housing

There are many off-campus apartments and residences available for rent or lease as well. Please click here for a listing of off-campus apartments.
