Living on Campus
Welcome to Housing & Dining! Much of your college education will occur outside of the classroom. To make the most of your Pioneer experience, consider living on campus with University Housing & Dining!
By living on campus, you will stay in touch with the heartbeat of TWU. You will also be centrally located near classes, libraries, dining halls, campus events and other “can’t miss” foundations of the TWU experience.
Make yourself at home on our website. If you still have questions please contact our office for assistance. We look forward to serving you.
Applications for Spring 2023 and the 2023-2024 Academic Year are now available.
2023-2024 Room Selection
Your Space is the Place: Room Selection 2023-2024 launches in February 2023.
During our room selection period, current or new residential students at TWU will complete their 2023-2024 Housing application, sign their Housing Contract, match with a roommate and select their new room space. Housing applications for 2023-2024 are open now for new, incoming residential students. Current residential students can apply for next year’s housing beginning February 1.
Throughout the month of February, Housing & Dining will host an array of Information Sessions, Tabling Events and in-hall programs to provide students with room selection info and swag (including t-shirts and more!), so be sure to stop and visit with us if you see Housing & Dining tabling in your residence hall, the Dining Hall or the Student Union!
To get the full scoop on the steps to take, when to apply and when to select your room and roommate, visit www.twu.edu/room-selection/, review the Room Selection Instructions (pdf) document and keep an eye out for more announcements from Housing & Dining as we approach the beginning of the 2023-2024 room selection period, starting in February.

Illness on Campus
TWU students, faculty, staff, and visitors should remain diligent about protecting themselves from COVID-19. This includes monitoring for symptoms, isolating after a positive test, and taking other precautions depending on personal risk factors. Individuals who feel sick, test positive, or have been exposed to the virus should follow current CDC guidelines for isolation/quarantine, as well as the treatment advice of their medical provider.
As of August 1, 2022, changes were made to the TWU COVID-19 Reporting requirements. Reporting of positive tests or exposures to Risk Management is no longer required and contact tracing will no longer be conducted.
All employees, students and visitors are recommended to self-screen for COVID-19 related symptoms BEFORE coming to any TWU campus.
