Upper-Class Housing Steps

Please review the various steps below that relate to housing for upper-class students. Pay careful consideration to forms that are required and key dates to ensure a smooth transition into TCU Housing

Rising Sophomore Housing Steps:

Special Notes:

  • All rising sophomores (not transfer sophomores) are guaranteed on-campus housing at TCU. Students will receive their room assignment prior to their move-in date in August.
  • All sophomores (rising and transfers) living on campus must have a dining plan unless approved by the Center for Academic Services.
  • Housing & Residence Life uses high school graduation year to determine classification for housing placement.

All housing communication will be sent directly to students’ TCU emails. Please check your email multiple times per week.

Current students can complete their housing application via my.tcu.edu. The Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 housing application opens February 2020.

Each student will receive a Housing Selection Timeslot. Timeslots are randomly generated for all students regardless of when they completed their housing application.  Timeslots are sent 3-5 business days prior to Housing Selection.

On Housing Selection Day, students will be able to log in to their Housing Portal and select their own room for Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 year. Housing Selection will take place March 2020 (date TBD).

Housing & Residence Life offers three designated move-in days. Move-In dates are determined by the TCU group/activity in which students participate (Frog Camp, Sorority Recruitment, ROTC, etc). Move-In times are determined by the floor and room number in which students are assigned.

Please confirm move-in dates and times before making travel arrangements. Early arrivals are not permitted. Students must move in on a designated Move-In day. 

Parents & Families: We suggest booking return flights for the day after move-in to allow enough time for you to get your student settled. It will be a busy day, and we want you to enjoy the experience rather than being rushed.

Information about specific move-in dates, times and locations can be found on our website.
