Residence Halls at University Commons

From moving into your very first suite to making new friends and attending campus activities, there are resources available to help you transition to life on your own.

Your move-in process will begin with arrival to campus at the residence hall location sent to you prior to move-in. Upon arrival, you will sign documents, pick up your keys and pay your first rental payment. You will also be given a room inventory checklist. Use this form to thoroughly inspect your suite and make sure everything is in working order. Peer Advisors will be on site and available to help you move into your new home and answer any questions that may arise as you explore campus.

Move-In Days
Move-in times vary. All freshmen will be contacted in advance regarding their assigned date and time of move-in. For more information, contact reslife@utdallas.edu or 972-883-7430.

What To Bring
Stock your suite with items to make you feel at home, like photos and mementos, wall décor and plants.

Paying Rent
Rent is due upon move-in. After move-in, rent is due the first day of each month and may be paid by check, money order or credit card.

Comet Card
For those living in the residence halls, your Comet Card will be the key to your new suite. The card will give you access to the building entrance and residential hallways, and be required in order to check out equipment and games from the front desk.  The card will also contain your meal plan information and will be used to gain entrance to the dining hall. If you have any questions, please contact Residential Life at 972-883-7430.

Peer Advisor Help and Support

They live alongside students in University Commons, and their responsibilities include acting as a sounding board on academic and personal issues, mediating roommate conflicts, engaging students in community, and facilitating community gatherings and activities.
