Attention: Rising Sophomores

Whether you were in-person, remote or a combination of both, we hope your first week of class went well.

We want to remind you that TCU has a two-year residency requirement, so if Fall 2021-Spring 2022 is a traditional year, you will be expected to live on-campus for your Sophomore year. If you have any questions about this requirement, please contact TCU Housing at (817)257-7865 or housing@tcu.edu.

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 the freedom to explore the community around me and infuse myself with the culture. Payton W – Moncrief Hall
