Camps & Conferences

Housing and Residence Life helps provide on-campus guest housing to UTRGV departments and student organizations for conferences and seminars, new student orientation visits, or educational visits to campus. We host youth and adult camps and conferences throughout the year. Our department works with on-campus partners to provide guests with affordable housing that will make your stay on campus pleasant and comfortable. As requested, Housing and Residence Life will provide check-in and check-out services at the beginning and end of the scheduled conference dates. Our department student staff is on-call in the case of an emergency.
