1 On-Campus Housing -- For Gateway Parents & Family -- Jeff Wilson ‘84 Assistant Director Division of Student Affairs Department of Residence Life “ Live at the Heart of the Aggie Experience ” Disclaimer: Info is current as June 29, 2011

2 Who is this Dude ? I’m an Aggie… a “former” Gateway student … and a graduate of the Corps of Cadets I’m a parent of… … a current Aggie … WHOOP!! … one going to that other school … SISSS … and one going to TAMU-Galveston … WHOOP!! But most importantly…I am the Housing Dude

3 Things to Keep in Mind  For the Fall -- freshmen are not required to live on campus … I hope you are not surprised ?  We “closed” housing in early-April the last 3 years … because we were FULL  Loss of 4 halls and Corps Renovation (~ 900 spaces) added to problem We only have room for ~5500 “freshmen” on campus

4 Applied for fall housing…  Permanent Housing – applied before April 7th th  Temporary / Over Assignment Housing  Applied AFTER April 7 th  … or we have not received your bacterial meningitis documentation  Right now, students in Temporary/Over assignments:  ~300 men  ~400 women …and over 1,000 on our Notification List

5 Temporary / Over Assignments  Guarantees you will have a “bed” somewhere on campus next fall, but it might be:  T.V. Lounge or Study Carrel …most of these rooms were bedrooms at one time  All will have access to their own bathrooms  Rarely … but they could be a 3 rd person in a room  “Roommate over hall” is NOT an option  Notified in early August You will have a place to live next fall !

6 Applied for housing yet ?  Corps Housing is still available…  But do NOT apply for this in hopes you will get ResLife “Non-Reg” housing  You can sign up for the “wait to be notified list”  Not a “wait list” … notified “IF” we open up housing again  If on the list…you get a head start on the application process Opening Up Housing ? Not before July 15th

7 Management of Your Expectations  Last Fall, there were ~6000 empty beds in the Bryan / College Station area …more this year  Many off-campus facilities opened at ~80% occupancy  Lots were offering “phenomenal” deals to sign a lease with them  Actually “raiding” from on-campus housing  Be careful…stiff penalties if you break the off-campus lease Off Campus weblink:

8 Housing Timelines…  Now until 1 st week of July - Permanent Assignments Released  Match “faces” to “spaces” for ~7700+ students  2 nd – 3 rd weeks of July:  Cancellations … most are students who forgot they had applied for on-campus housing  Middle of July / early August:  Open up housing ?  “Temporary / Over Assignments” Released  Until August 5 th – All fall assignments done…no more changes  August 21 st …move in  August 29 th … no shows & hall changes  By 2 nd week of September: All fall moves are done ? !!!! Patience = A Place to Live !

9 Helpful Hints  Check Housing on Web (HoW) everyday between now and Aug 5 th … if we take your $$ …then you are in !  The longer you can wait … the better your chances are of getting in  This applies to off-campus housing too !  Last year, ~200 students just did not show up the first week of school

10 Dos and Don’ts for Gateway  Single Room vs Roommate for Gateway housing  Plenty of room … we can do either  Dos:  Have your student’s UIN available  Apply for parking…even if you don’t know where yet  Don’ts:  …paint your room…this will NOT be your room in the fall  …apply for Interim Housing…you are not eligible  …assume you will be on this side of campus for the fall…or even this style of hall

11 Reminders If you get in … and sign a contract:  Stiff penalties for LATE cancellations:  25% of the Fall semester rent after July 15 th (regardless of when you signed the contract)  50% of the Spring semester rent…if enrolled in classes  For those who sign up for the Corps  If you quit the Corps … there is no guarantee you will get on-campus housing  …or it could be temporary housing for the entire fall semester  No Interim Housing for Gateway students  “Not Fully Admitted” until AFTER grades are posted  Early Move in for Fish Camp F & G

12 If you Remember Nothing Else … Housing Assignments Office:  Cain Hall, Room B-140  Phone: / 4745  Toll Free:  FAX: Check us out on FaceBook and iTunes too !!
