TAMU-CC is committed to helping Islanders be successful in college! First-year students are required to live on-campus for two semesters (i.e. fall & spring) so they will be more likely to:
The requirement only applies to first-year undergraduate students:
First-Year Islanders must live at either Miramar or Momentum Village. Submit a housing application on www.islanderhousing.com to choose a community and floor plan.
If the student’s information (permanent address or birth date) is incorrect in university records, it is the student’s responsibility to correct that data through https://sail.tamucc.edu before they may register for New Student Orientation (Islander Launch).
Exemptions are considered only under certain circumstances. Living with approved family is most common and there are other types as well. Exemption request forms for the 2020-2021 Academic year will be available here beginning December 2, 2019.
Review of complete exemption requests may take up to 15 business days once all required information is received.
Students will not be allowed to register for New Student Orientation (Islander Launch) or classes until on-camput housing, or an approved exemption, is finalized.
Students should not sign an off-campus lease unless they have received approval from Islander Housing to live off-campus.
