Upper-Class Housing

Rising Sophomore Housing:

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

Rising sophomores can complete their housing application via my.tcu.edu – Student Services – Housing Portal.

The Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 application will open Spring 2020.

Housing & Residence Life uses high school graduation year to determine classification for housing placement.

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.

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

The March Housing Selection is April 22, 2020.

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.

Sophomore students have multiple meal plan options available. Students can choose their meal plan when completing their TCU housing application. Students can change their meal plans on the housing application portal up until the 12th class day of each semester.

Students who have a dietary restriction and feel they need a dietary accommodation can work with the Center for Academic Services. Please contact them at (817) 257-6567 or Academic_Services@tcu.edu.

All sophomores (rising and transfers) living on campus must have a meal plan unless approved by the Center for Academic Services.

Moving on campus is an exciting time, but it can be challenging as you prepare.  We have created a comprehensive list of suggested items to bring, items Housing & Residence Life provides and items you should leave behind. Learn more about what to bring to your new home.

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Coordinate with your roommate(s) on which items you will bring. Some students even like to coordinate room decorations!
  • Room descriptions, approximate dimensions and photos are provided on our Residence Halls page. We are unable to provide exact measurements of your room or furniture. Please plan to take measurements of our tour rooms while on campus.
  • Students can ship items to campus as soon as they secure a TCU Post Office Box. Many students ship items to campus prior to moving in to minimize the amount of items they bring with them on Move-In day. Some students choose to purchase items after they move in. Do what is best for you and your family!
  • Don’t over buy! Less is always more. You can always purchase items after you move in.
  • We also suggest getting renters’ insurance for your room.

Housing & Residence Life offers 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.

Students that live within a 30 mile radius of TCU with a parent or legal guardian are eligible to commute. Please complete the Commuter Exemption Request Form if you are interested in commuting from home.
