About Us

The Department of Housing and Residence Life provides convenient and affordable housing to enrolled students attending UTRGV. Living on campus is a great way for you to get connected, meet friends, and be involved. UTRGV Housing and Residence Life offers a wide array of housing options designed to meet your needs and provides an environment that supports academic growth and community respect.

UTRGV Residence Life offer student housing at the UTRGV Brownsville Campus featuring apartment style living at Casa Bella. At Edinburg, TX we have three Residence Halls: Unity, Heritage & Troxel and The Village Apartments.

UTRGV offers both traditional residence hall and apartment style housing that is located in close proximity to university resources such as the Library, Recreation Center, and classrooms. Residence halls provide an opportunity for you to meet people and get involved in a close-knit community that combines all the comforts of home with all the excitement of the traditional college experience. Freshmen are encouraged to consider living on campus. The experience of many students indicates that adjustment to University life is often easier for those who live on campus. Research indicates that students who live in residence halls are more fully involved in academic and extracurricular activities, earn higher grade point averages, more frequently exceed predicted levels of learning and personal development, and more frequently complete their college education within four years, as compared to students who live off campus.

Apartments provide an opportunity for you to live a more autonomous lifestyle with the opportunity to still be involved in campus life, stay connected to campus resources and the apartment community while living only minutes from your classes.

Students who live on campus will also have a meal plan that will provide meals at the University Dining Hall or other on-campus venues through the use of Dining Dollars.

Scholarships, grants and loans are available through the Financial Aid Office to assist you in your housing cost. Our office offers affordable pricing and payment plans with no credit checks to meet your financial needs.

In choosing to live on campus, you are investing in your academic success and benefiting from engaging in the full university experience. We encourage you to make the most of it by getting involved in and outside the classroom, embracing new challenges and ideas, and building working relationships with students, staff and faculty. I wish you the best of luck on your academic journey and hope we can work together to provide you a successful experience.

Warmest Regards,


Sergio Martinez, M.B.A.
