Application Process

Application Process

Students must first be admitted to Texas Tech University before applying for housing. Students are encouraged to apply for housing as soon as they are notified of their admission status and receive their eRaider account information. To complete the housing application, go to housing.ttu.edu and follow the online checklist provided.


New students for the fall 2019 or spring 2020 academic term have the opportunity to reserve specific room assignments. Students also have the option to select a Learning Community per availability for which they qualify, or select any other available space. This process will begin October 1, 2018, for current residents, and November 5, 2018, for new residents. Spaces that are not reserved by current students will be made available to all new incoming or off-campus students as of November 5, 2018. All applicants will be required to sign a contract and pay the required fees or make arrangements with University Student Housing prior to making a room reservation. Contracts may be signed online by students who are 18 or older or may be printed, signed and mailed to University Student Housing. Students under the age of 18 must sign the contract in addition to the parent/legal guardian's signature, and mail the signed contract to University Student Housing:

Roommate Requests

Students requesting to be roommates must select a room at the same time online. Both students must be admitted to Texas Tech University prior to selecting a room and must complete an application, contract, and pay the required fees. If a Learning Community is desired, both students must be approved for that Learning Community.


Students who do not have a specific roommate request may select a room with a student who also chooses the available space in the room, apartment, or suite. Students may return to the website to check on roommate assignments and other application data as desired.

Changes In Assignment

All students select a specific room and hall assignment when completing the application, contract, and required fees for housing. Once the initial application is completed, the student may return to the website to make changes at any time prior to the closing of the room selection process. Instructions for room and hall changes can be found at housing.ttu.edu. Should the desired space not be available, the student should return to the website and check on a regular basis for space availability as other students make room/ hall changes or cancel applications.

Students entering the residence halls for only the spring 2019 semester may choose up to three residence hall preferences instead of a specific room. Room assignments for spring applicants will be based on availability. It will be necessary to assign the spring residents to spaces made available when students vacate their room at the end of the fall term. Assignments normally occur after December 17, 2018, and are emailed to the student's official Texas Tech University email account. During the signup process, a student also selects a Dining Plan. Dining Bucks Plans are designed to work around the students' eating habits. There are no restrictions on when and where students can use them it's all in the way they dine! The Red & Black level is best for students who are big–eaters and who will take advantage of late-night snacking and the mini-markets. The Matador level is ideal for students who eat most meals on campus. Finally, the Double T level is perfect for students who are light eaters or might miss meals for various reasons.
