Roommates and Leasing

Having a roommate is a great way to meet people and stay connected to the campus. The University assigns roommates at the Heights on Pecan and Timber Brook. Students may choose their roommate in all other apartments. All chosen roommates must be a UTA enrolled student or an immediate family member (documentation must be provided to support family relationship). Those apartments are leased to one UT Arlington student and that person is responsible for the rent.

Occupancy limits vary by community and are established as follows. Exceptions for immediate family members of the leaseholder are noted below.
