Welcome to Islander Housing!
Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi offers two distinct housing communities to meet the diverse needs of all Islanders. First-year (freshman) students are not required to live on-campus but it is strongly recommended. Students who live on-campus for at least one year are more active in campus events and activities, create a better support network, have a higher GPA, and are more likely to graduate on time than students who live off-campus.
Students who want to live on-campus at either of our communities must submit a housing application. Future students must be accepted to TAMU-CC before applying for housing.
Miramar is the perfect option for first year students and those who want a more traditional on-campus housing experience. There are 7 residence hall and apartment floor plans to choose from, 9 month academic year leases (with the option to sign a summer lease) and it’s just a quick walk to everything on the Island. Miramar is designed with community spaces to encourage student interaction, expand relationships, and support your academic journey.
Momentum Village is the best option for established students who want the benefits of on-campus housing and the feel of off-campus living. It is located on our Momentum Campus, just steps away from athletic and intramural fields, and features apartment and townhome floor plans with 12 month leases (August-July 31). Residents have their own master bedroom and access to group study lounges and recreational activities to support and enhance your college experience.
Islander Housing programs assists students in achieving their academic and personal goals by providing excellent on-campus housing, referral to off-campus housing, and transportation resources. The department supports the mission of the university by creating living environments that are conducive to learning.
