Residence Halls at University Commons



Housing Assignments

Suite assignments for the fall semester will be emailed to your UT Dallas email account in July to your UT Dallas email address. Names and email addresses of roommates will be included. Assignments will not be released over the phone.

Freshmen who are admitted for summer or spring will be given their move-in date by University Commons staff.

Roommate Assignments
Roommates are assigned based on gender and space availability. All buildings are coed; individual suites are not.

Every effort is made to place students who mutually request each other in the same suite.

Applicants will be given priority based on availability and according to the date and time the completed application and fees are submitted prior to May 15th.

If no roommate is requested, students will be matched based on answers to questions on their housing applications and the date of their completed application.

Assignments are made without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation or veteran status.

LLC Selection is prioritized over roomate requests.

The Residential Life Office reserves the right to make assignment changes as necessary.
