5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Great social atmosphere, modern and spacious dorms, smooth housing process, and there's a shuttle for residence halls that are further away from the academic buildings.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus because it is really nice to be close to classes and close to the dining halls, and all my friends are right by me so the social aspect is great. Some dorms are definitely better than others, with Brachman being probably the worst and PE Clark/Marion, the dorms in the Commons and Tom Brown being the best. They all have a lot of washers and driers which is nice, and it is really easy to get the dorm you want.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I hated my roomates my 2nd and 3rd semester and had a hard time getting help with issues and with changing rooms. I also love my roommates from 1st semester and get along with my 4th semester roommates fine.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing at TCU is so nice and better than any other college housing that I have seen. The rooms are much larger than a typical dorm room and are kept up to date and nice. You really get to know the people you are living with and there are several housing options to choose from. I love it here!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

TCU provides a variety of options for students who live on campus. Housing at TCU revolves around money—each dorm comes with its own price tag. Most of the nicer on-campus housing is reserved for upperclass students, although none of the facilities are entirely exclusive. All freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus, which can be a great way to get involved with the school and meet new people.

TCU offers students well-furnished and well-maintained living arrangements. Most dorms have carpeting, and all offer access to cable TV and high-speed Internet. Each dorm has a distinct flavor and history, which brings students together. Many students view TCU not only as their school, but literally their home for ten months of the year. Living in a dorm helps students feel at home on campus and brings many students together.

Did You Know?
  • The policy at TCU dictates that every freshman and sophomore student must live on campus or at their parents' house. After the first two years, you can move off campus without a problem.
  • Comparatively, the cost of renting an on-campus apartment is far less than it would be to lease an apartment from an outside vendor and commute.
  • You can check out floor plans, pictures, and information about dorms at www.rlh.tcu.edu/reshalls.
