Residence Halls

General Hall Information

The Texas Tech University Residence Hall system houses more than 7,400 students in 13 residence halls, 4 suite-style halls and 1 apartment complex. These halls consist of 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 12-story buildings. Buildings of more than 3 floors have elevator service with the exception of Sneed Hall. Individual room sizes vary in each building.

Living in the residence halls is convenient, simple and virtually worry free. It's a fun and easy way to experience the excitement of college life. Students who live in the halls are more likely to meet new friends, have more exciting experiences on campus and don't have the hassle of leaving and returning to campus for events, activities and classes.

Find the residence hall with the Best Fit for you!

All residence halls are air conditioned and are non-smoking living environments. In addition to the fall and spring semesters, summer and year-round housing is available. Facilities for students with disabilities are also available in several residence halls.

Learning Communities

On the Texas Tech campus, a Learning Community houses a group of students on one or more floors of a residence hall with an academic unit focus such as health sciences, architecture, fine arts or a common interest such as first year experience. All share a common goal of creating an educational environment that brings educators and students together to enhance student learning.

We currently have 15 Learning Communities where over 2,300 Red Raiders (about 1/3 of our population) reside. Living in our LCs boosts your chances for academic success and offer the opportunity to share an intellectual experience with your peers. You will also have increased access to faculty and academic support staff.

Other Options

Summer Housing

A limited number of residence halls are open for summer. Students may request housing for the summer and interim periods even though they are not enrolled in summer classes, provided the student will be enrolled for the fall semester.

Graduate Student Housing

Graduate students are eligible to sign up and contract for space in any residence hall. We encourage graduate students to sign up for housing in the Carpenter/Wells Complex, Murray Hall or West Village.

Married/Family Student Housing

Texas Tech University does not operate housing for married students or students with families.
