Student IDs

All students will need photo IDs to access buildings and services on each campus. Current students should use their existing IDs. New students who are taking only courses online or through distance education will be issued photo-less ID cards with a name and ID number.

Residence halls

Fall Move-in Dates: Sunday, Aug. 16, through Wednesday, Aug. 19

Students received notification in July of the move-in schedule. We also will accommodate students who want to move in and drop off items prior to the official move-in date. Fall 2020 move-in details are available on the Housing website.

Hall Capacity

In an effort to decrease density for the duration of the semester, the university reduced capacity in the dorms, allowing for more single rooms; neither quad- nor triple-occupancy rooms are offered this fall.

Additionally, the university enlisted the services of University and Student Services to assist students with the move-in process, which helped maintain social distancing protocols over the course of the extended move-in schedule.

Residence Bathrooms

Each community bathroom in Parliament Village will accommodate fewer than 20 people. Each restroom will be cleaned at a minimum twice daily including weekends. Additionally, there will be spray bottles with disinfectant in each restroom. The shower stall walls in Parliament Hall bathrooms go to the ceiling, which also reduces COVID risk.

Other residence housing on our Denton campus has private bathrooms, which residents are responsible to clean.

Housing Visitors

Students living on campus will be limited to one visitor at a time. Students should talk with their roommate ahead of time to set mutual expectations on visitors.


Chartwells, TWU’s dining service provider on all three campuses, is taking additional precautions to provide clean and safe dining environments. Dining locations will operate with reduced seating while offering dine-in, grab-and-go, and order-ahead options.

Other safety measures include:

  • Cleaning and sanitizing food contact surfaces every 30 minutes
  • Sanitizing high contact areas such as tables, chairs and digital ordering devices between service periods
  • Having dedicated cleaning concierges focused on monitoring and cleaning high contact area
  • Making hand sanitizer readily available to guests

At the end of each day, facilities will be disinfected using EPA-registered disinfectants that inactivate the COVID-19 virus.
