Room Selection

STEP 1:

Sign your contract in the Housing Portal. New future residents may complete it now. Current residents may complete it starting February 1.

Complete the 2023-2024 Resident Application & Contract in your housing portal. You must be an accepted student to TWU. New residents will pay a $50 application fee and $100 deposit.

  • Log in to the Housing Portal
  • Click on "Application and Request Forms" from the left menu
  • Select the 2023-2024 application
  • Complete and submit the application

STEP 2:

Choose or add your roommate via My College Roomie. Within 24 hours of completing your application/contract, you will receive an invitation to My College Roomie.

NOTE: New future residents will receive their My College Roomie invitation starting March 1.

My College Roomie is a roommate matching software where you can find your roommate and meet potential roommates. Once you have matched with your roommate in My College Roomie, you will be able to add them to your room during self-selection. Roommates must be matched in My College Roomie in order to create an official roommate group. Roommate groups determine roommate pairs. If you already have a roommate picked out, you will still need to set up a profile and request each other in My College Roomie.

STEP 3:

Select your room according to the schedule below. If you miss your room selection week, you may participate in future selection dates.

Items to Note

How to Self-Select:

Detailed instructions regarding how to locate and complete your 2023-2024 application/contract, how to select a roommate in My College Roomie, and how to select a room during self-selection will be linked here by February 1. Please continue to refer back to this page for updates.

Meal Plans:

Meal plans are required for residents in Parliament Village, Guinn, and Stark Halls.

Change Your Room Selection:

Those who select a room but then want to change must either have all affected residents in both rooms mutually agree to switch and then all email housing@twu.edu, OR they may participate in Room Change Week June 20 – 22.

Residency Requirement:

All TWU full-time single undergraduates who have not completed 60 credit hours are required to live in University residential communities unless one of the following exceptions apply:

  • 21 years of age or older
  • Active duty military or veterans of military service
  • Living with parents or legal guardians within the commuting distance (40 miles)
  • With dependent children

If one of these exceptions applies to you, please complete the Residency Exemption Request Form in the Housing Portal. More information about the residency requirement can be found here.

Parent Signature:

If you are under 18, your parents will also need to sign the Housing & Dining contract. This must occur for the application/contract to be considered complete and submitted. The parent email provided by the student in their application will be contacted to complete the verification online. 

Living Learning Communities:

Certain areas of Parliament Village are designated as Living Learning Communities (LLC). If an LLC student has a preferred roommate, the roommate must be a part of the same LLC in order to be roommates.

Gender Inclusive Housing:

The Department of Housing & Dining at Texas Woman’s University seeks to provide a residential environment welcoming to all gender identities. The Gender Inclusive Community, located in Guinn Hall, allows for individuals to live together regardless of biological sex in order to provide a safe and supportive environment for residents in respect to their gender identity and gender expression. Students who complete a 2023-2024 Resident Application will see a Gender Inclusive Community Standards Agreement as an optional form in their housing portal. Those interested in living in the Gender Inclusive Community should complete that form to ensure their roommate matching and room selection options align with others who opt-in to the Gender Inclusive Community. For more about this community, please refer to the Gender Inclusive Community website.
