2024-2025 Housing Application

Update as of April 1st, 2024:

UTSA Housing and Residence Life at this time is only accepting waitlist applications. Should a student be offered a space, instructions will be sent via email for them to accept or decline the offer. It is very important that students are checking their emails as the offer will have a 24 hour expiration date. Space offers are made in the order that students completed their waitlist application.

Should you make other arrangements and no longer would like to be on our waitlist please let us know so you are removed from the waitlist.

Update as of March 22nd, 2024:

We experienced an overwhelming response to the March 17th housing contract priority deadline for the 2024-25 Academic Year. While rooms are still available, they are going fast. UTSA housing contracts are accepted on a rolling basis in the order they are received until all spaces are leased, which may happen before our March 24th regular deadline.

If you know you want to live in UTSA Housing in the Fall, we recommend that you complete your contract NOW instead of waiting as we anticipate reaching our max occupancy prior to any listed deadlines. 

  *These dates are subject to change at the discretion of the department.*

All Applicants Contract Completion Date Roommate Selection Room Selection
Priority Deadline for Room Selection March 17th March 4th - 17th March 19th - 21st
Regular Deadline for Room Selection March 24th March 18th - March 24th April 2nd - 4th
Room Assignments (for those who complete their application AFTER March 31) March 25th until 100% full Not Available Students in this category will be assigned to their space by Housing Staff on a rolling basis

*All deadlines refer to 11:59pm on that day*

It is important to note that you and your preferred roommate must meet all of the same deadlines in order to be able to match together. Students who complete their contract on or after March 25th will not have the ability to select a roommate or room. Housing Staff will assign students who complete their contracts on or after March 24th based upon housing preferences and availability.

Priority Deadline

To participate in the priority deadline period, applicants must complete the application and sign the contract no later than the dates which will be listed above. If an applicant does not meet the deadline, Housing and Residence Life will assign late applicants on a rolling basis. The contract does not guarantee a specific facility, room type or roommate. Housing and Residence Life will do its best to accommodate the facility, room and roommate preferences listed on the application.

Roommate Matching

Once you complete the contract, the option to match with a roommate who has also completed their contract becomes available. All roommate requests must be mutual in order to complete your assignment as a paired group. You will only be able to match with another student who has completed the contract by the same deadline as you and who has matching housing preferences. Roommate requests made outside of the deadlines are not guaranteed.

*You are only able to match with ONE other student*

Please see our Roommate Matching instructional video for more details.

Mixed-Gender Housing

Mixed-Gender Housing (MGH) is an opt-in option for residents. Those residents that opt in to MGH will only be assigned into units with other residents that also opted in to MGH. Students who opt into MGH will have their housing gender changed to "Neutral" on their application in order to remove any biases. You will only be able to match with other roommates who also indicate MGH on their application.

Please refer to our FAQs on Mixed-Gender Housing for more information.

Themed Residential Community

Themed Residential Community (TRC) promotes the academic and personal development of the students living in the selected community by allowing students with common interests to live together in a supportive environment. Learn more about our Themed Residential Community options.
