We want to give students the opportunity to learn and grow in an environment that empowers personal, academic, spiritual and community development. The residence halls on campus are a great way to meet new friends, participate in campus activities, develop new interests and learn to live in a community rich in diversity. We encourage students to become an active member of our residential campus community.
Where will I live?
The residence halls on campus are referred to as H1 and H2. Together, they house 340 students. The first floor of H1 is our Student Lounge that houses a free laundry room, vending machine, and couches where you can read, study, watch television or just relax.
There are two flat-screen TVs in H1 - one in the lobby and the other in a recreational room that also has a ping-pong and air hockey table. Finally, this room has a kitchenette that students are free to use. You’ll also find your mailbox and several quiet study rooms on the first floor of H1.
Or, if you’re ready to apply, fill out the New Student Residence Hall Application.
Frequently Asked Questions About Residence Life
Here are a few commonly asked questions regarding living at Concordia University. If you have additional questions regarding Residential Life or Housing, please contact Sarah Eberle at 512-313-4305 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Am I required to live on Campus?
All new incoming freshman are required to live on campus, unless they plan on living with a parent. All full-time, unmarried students who do not live with parents or close relatives are encouraged to live on campus. For more information on residence requirements, please talk to your admissions counselor. Download the official policy and exempt request form.
- Am I guaranteed a room?
No - Concordia's residence halls frequently fill up. The sooner you return your residence hall application with a $275 reservation fee, the more likely you will get a spot in the residence halls and be granted your room and/or roommate requests.
The deadline to complete the Residence Hall Application is July 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester. However, we recommend you submit your application as soon as possible after being admitted to Concordia. Rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
- How are roommates assigned?
If you do not have a roommate preference, Concordia makes every effort to match students with roommates who share compatible interests and habits. We make decisions based on our knowledge of you, either personally or what you have included on the housing application. In order to simplify this process and to better ensure that you have roommates with similar interests, please be as specific and accurate as possible when filling out the Residence Hall Application.
If you and another student(s) (whether current CTX or new student) have agreed to be roommates, please make sure that all of you requests the others as your roommate preferences. Only mutual requests will be granted.
If you have no special request at first, but later want to choose a roommate, simply contact Sarah Eberle at 512-313-4305 or email@example.com, and, if possible, your request will be granted.
- When will I find out my roommate assignment?
Room and roommate assignments are usually mailed in late July or early August.
- What should I bring?
What kind of furniture is provided? May I bring my cat? So many questions, so little time. Relax, we have a list for that.
