Update Regarding Fall Move-In

June 15, 2020

Dear Resident Students,

It certainly feels like summer in Fort Worth. The skies are blue, the sun is shining, football players are returning to campus for voluntary workouts, summer school classes are happening and in the Housing office we are planning for your arrival. Fall classes begin on Aug. 17, and we could not be more excited to have you all on campus.

Moving in to your hall, campus apartment, or your fraternity or sorority facility is a highly coordinated effort, and this year, our goal is to keep lines short and crowds of people small to allow for physical distancing. This means the process will be a little longer than in previous years. Your health and safety, along with the well-being of all TCU faculty and staff, are the top priorities in our planning. We appreciate your willingness to be flexible, patient and adjust as needed to help make move-in successful.

Move-in dates are now set so that you can plan for your arrival to campus. All residential students (first-year and returning) may return on their assigned move-in date and check-in time between Tuesday, Aug. 11, through Friday, Aug. 14.  Our office is working with First-Year Experience staff regarding events for first-year students and participation information will come soon. Some campus groups, such as band and spirit squads, will be approved for a different move-in day and time, and we are working on that now. You will receive a separate email on or before Friday June 19 sent to your TCU email address with your unique day and actual check-in time slot. Please save that email and print it for your records.

More information and exact details about how the move-in process will work will be sent to your TCU email address and posted to the housing web site in mid-July. With your cooperation and adherence to your move-in date and timeslot, the process will go well.

Thanks everyone. We just can’t wait to have you all on campus!

GO Frogs!

Welcome to Housing & Residence Life

Housing and Residence Life creates the communities in which students live, study and build friendships. TCU is a residential campus by design, with approximately 5,000 students living on campus. These students learn responsibility, problem-solving and how to be leaders. They begin to appreciate the unique perspective of others and develop a sense of belonging. The Department of Housing and Residence Life challenges, supports and educates residents within our communities to become responsible, aware and engaged citizens. 

I love living on campus because I get to explore my passions and grow as a leader within my hall. TCU has given me freedom to explore the community around me and infuse myself with the culture. Payton W – Moncrief Hall
