Graduate students have several options for housing while studying at Texas Tech.

All graduate students are eligible to sign up to live in any of University Student Housing's 18 halls or their on-campus apartment complex. Graduate students are encouraged to consider housing in the Carpenter/Wells Complex or Murray Hall. Once you've been admitted to the university, use the Priority Room Selection system to sign up for a room online. There is no deadline for signing up, but all rooms are selected on a first-come, first-serve basis.

If you have any questions about signing up for a room and dining plan, you can contact University Student Housing directly by phone at 806.742.2661 or email them at
