Housing Rate Information

Housing at the UTRGV Residence Halls is available for UTRGV students, faculty, staff, and participants of University-sponsored programs. Individuals seeking housing accommodations at the University must sign a Reservation Agreement identifying either a 9-month fall/spring lease period or a 3-month summer lease period. Space in our residence halls is reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Select holidays and breaks are not included in the agreement, as the residence halls officially close and meal plans are inactive. Residence halls are officially closed during Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Breaks. Students requesting to stay on campus during these breaks must fill out a Break Housing Agreement and if approved may stay for the duration of the break at no extra charge. Residents of The Village Apartments, Casa Bella Apartments, and Troxel Hall may remain on campus during the breaks and do not need to submit any additional forms.

Housing Deposit and Application Fees

A $100.00 refundable security deposit is required for students applying for the 1st time to UTRGV on-campus housing. A one time $50 application fee will be assessed to all new students. For more information on security deposits go to our Housing Deposit Refund page.  The refund may be forfeited for a number of reasons including, but not limited to: as part of the cancellation of the lease, violation of check-out procedures; improper checkout; damage to facilities; or need for additional room/apartment cleaning.
