Considering moving to the Village Apartments? Getting married? Don't know what to do to get a room on campus? You're in the right place. If you have any questions about the applications, forms, or anything else related to living on-campus, drop us a line and we can help you out! Otherwise, check out the sections below.
One element of our educational philosophy at LeTourneau is that students learn better when they live together on campus. This residential model shapes the way that we operate the office of Residence Life from our policies, to programs, to the design of our ResHalls. One outcome of this philosophy is our requirement for our traditional students to live on-campus. So what that means for you is that you should plan on living on campus until you meet one of the exceptions listed in the off-campus section at the bottom of this page.

LeTourneau University offers housing in 10 distinct living areas of campus, so we have something just for you!! New or Returning; Single or Married; Graduate or UnderGrad; Fall, Spring, or Summer - most of the things you need to apply for housing are located on our Housing Portal at: starrez.letu.edu.
The housing applications on the portal are available to accepted students only. If you've just been accepted to LETU, it may take 1-2 business days for your account to be created.
In some circumstance, students may request a room without a roommate. This form is used to request a single room. It is uncommon that a new student will be granted such a request. Please read the Private Room Request Form for more details.
For new students applying for the Quad Houses (Durham, Carpenter, Howe, and McKinley), please fill out the Private Room Request, in addition to the New Student Housing Application located on the Housing Portal.
The on-campus apartments provide a living option for our upper-division students that gives more freedom and flexibility. To qualify, you must have a 2.5 GPA and at least 60 hours completed (Junior status).

As part of our educational philosophy, all traditional undergraduate students are required to live on-campus. We do, however, provide for a few exemptions from living on campus:
- You are married,
- You will be residing with parent(s) or legal guardian within a commuting distance to campus,
- You have already received a four-year degree from a college or university, or have attended LETU for at least four years,
- You have served at least 2 years of continuous active military duty,
- You are enrolled as a part-time student with six or fewer credit hours,
- You will be 22 years of age or older by the first day of class.
- You have completed at least 90 credit hours while maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA with no academic or disciplinary probations during the previous 3 semesters.
If the above situations do not apply to you, plan on living on campus until you meet at least one of the criteria.
