Housing & Dining
When the Campus Commons is your front yard, you can live your best TCU life. Our residential communities are nationally recognized for good reason.
Living On Campus
The experience of living on campus is more than convenient—it’s a valuable way to take part in everything TCU has to offer. Finding yourself in your new home is sure to foster lifelong friendships and personal growth. That’s why we require our first-year students outside the Fort Worth area to live on campus.
Each of our unique residence halls has been freshly updated in recent years, so they all offer comfortable, welcoming surroundings from which to start your future. More than a place to live, they’re alive with caring staff and planned activities.
Living Off Campus
TCU is surrounded by a friendly residential neighborhood with a number of nearby student housing options, so many upperclassmen choose to live off campus. Some apartment complexes cater exclusively to students and even provide transportation.
The food possibilities at TCU are vast; our flexible dining plans extend beyond our popular campus eateries to off-campus spots. We offer scratch made comfort foods that include both vegetarian and vegan fare, and keep one of our kitchens allergen-free for students with food sensitivities.
