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.

Spring 2024 Move-In Guide

New resident for Spring 2024? Check out the Spring 2024 Move-In Guide and below for information regarding your move-in process.

When You Arrive

Remember to have your TWU ID when you arrive for move-in day. On January 10, please go to the front desk of your hall to check in. You must present your ID when you enter your building to pick up your room key upon unloading your vehicle. We ask that guests and family members remain outside during this time to avoid crowding. Spring Move-in for new residents is scheduled for 1 - 5 pm on Wednesday, January 10. If you are attending orientation that day, please finish your orientation activities before moving in. If you are unable to pick up your room key on January 10, you may check-in January 14 - 15 between 9am - 10pm. Failure to check-in by 5 pm on January 16 will result in cancellation of the contract.


We encourage you to call or email your new roommate. You may locate their information in your housing portal. Getting in touch will give you a chance to get to know each other. Once you move into your residence hall or apartment, you will complete a roommate agreement with your roommate.

Safety Tips

  • Lock your doors at all times. Double check the door to ensure it is locked.
  • Always use your door viewer before opening your door to visitors, even when you are expecting someone.
  • Never prop open any exterior doors.
  • Use lockable furniture for important items such as computers, tablets and personal documents.
  • Do not leave personal items such as phones, purses or bags alone in public areas, even for a short time.
  • Never share your ID with another person. Report lost IDs and keys immediately.
  • Avoid letting people you do not know piggy back behind you as you enter your residence hall.
  • Avoid walking alone at night. Contact DPS for an escort.
  • Text a friend to let them know when you are leaving a location and when to expect you to arrive.
