Residence Hall Contract Renewal 2016

Do you love your residence hall or are you ready to move to an apartment?  Either way, you can guarantee your place to live for next school year during the residence hall renewal period, February 23-26, 2016!

Here's how it works:

  • February 23: Renew if you want to remain in your current room next August
  • February 24: Renew if you want to stay in a different room within your current building next August
  • February 25: Renew if you want to move to one of our other 5 residence halls, or Arbor Oaks, Timber Brook, The Lofts, or The Heights on Pecan (details on each community below)
  • February 26: This is your last chance to renew for any residence hall or select apartments.  Otherwise, you will have to reapply and join the pool with all new incoming freshmen.

You can renew for a residence hall and also apply for Timber Brook, The Heights, The Lofts, or Arbor Oaks.  Although you are given priority to move to the apartments noted above, it is not guaranteed and dependent on available spaces.  If offered an apartment and you sign a UTA lease, you can cancel your Residence Hall Contract without penalty before April 30, 2016.

Instructions for residence hall renewals:

  • Sign in online using your NetID and password, then complete the application corresponding to where you want to live next Fall/Spring 2016-2017.
