Living in a campus residence hall can be one of the most rewarding experiences of university life. A roommate can become a lifelong friend. Students in the next room or across the hall can bring different viewpoints and cultures to expand your world. Perspectives are broadened, understandings are developed, and lives are enriched. To provide an atmosphere conducive to both living and learning, the Department of University Housing provides a variety of housing facilities for students. These facilities are provided on the Denton campus. Accommodations include traditional residence halls, as well as family housing and campus apartments. Living on campus brings the vitality of the university close to you. It is an experience worth having. The Housing staff at Texas Woman's University is committed to making this experience comfortable, educational and enjoyable. The Department of University Housing has made a commitment to provide an environment where individual growth can effectively take place and where classroom learning can be integrated into your daily living experience. Further your own personal development by taking advantage of the many opportunities afforded by residence hall living.
From multi-storied towers to more traditional architecture, the many different residential areas on TWU's main campus in Denton provide a wide range of choices in student living. Accommodations are available in Jones, Stark, and Guinn residence halls for freshmen and sophomores or individuals who fall under the residency requirement. Grove Street apartments are for Sophomores. Juniors and seniors will be assigned to TWU Select apartments. Married students with children and single-parent families will be considered for Lowry Woods family housing on a space available basis.

Your Residence Hall Experience...

Did you know that 75% of your time at the University will be spent outside of the classroom? A good majority of that time will be spent where you reside if you are living on campus, or split between commuting and where you reside if you live off campus.

Your living environment is an integral component for your success at the University. That is why our residence halls are equipped to provide you with much more than just a place to sleep. They are "living/learning environments" where you have the opportunity to interact with a variety of people from a wide range of backgrounds, participate in various activities in and outside of the halls, and become a leader through your involvement in student organizations and/or student employment positions. Through these experiences you will learn more about yourself as your University education inside and outside the classroom prepares you for your career and your future.
