First Year Accommodations

Scrub Oak Hall

Housing for Orientation

A room in the residence halls will be provided for all students registered for First-Year Orientation, and it is expected that all students stay with us throughout the program. No alterations to fees are offered based on the use of your residence hall space. The overnight experience will allow all students to  take full advantage of Orientation activities and get a taste of life in the residence halls.  Overnight participants in First-Year Orientation stay in the Tercero Area Residence Halls.

All linens including 2 towels, a washcloth, a pillow, a pillow case, a mattress pad, and a blanket will be provided for each overnight participant.

The halls have traditional double- and triple- occupancy rooms. There are several shared restrooms on each floor and each floor has its own lounge area. Elevators, as well as stairwells, provide access to the four stories of each hall, while laundry rooms and kitchen facilities are located on the ground floor.

Please note that no roommate requests are accepted during Orientation. Students and Family Program participants who have both selected Overnight Accommodations will be assigned into separate housing accommodations in different buildings.

Be sure to check out Aggie Abodes to get a preview of what life is like living in the residence halls.
