We understand that not every first year student is able to live in the Residence Halls at Texas Tech. Even though institutional research indicates that students who live on campus perform better academically, there are provisions for students that need to live off campus if they meet the requirements. Students are encouraged to read OP 30.25 when requesting to live off campus.
Students that meet one of these requirements need to fill out the Exemption Form and send any other necessary documentation to University Student Housing. We will respond via email within three to five business days with a notice of eligibility, ineligibility, or a request for further information. All responses will be sent to the student's Texas Tech email address.
Please send all documents to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax them to 806-742-2696, or upload them using the electronic form.
Additional documentation may be required for an exemption request.
