Apply for Housing
Students who live on campus are more likely to graduate on time, have a higher GPA and be more satisfied with their college experience than students who live off campus.
Make the most out of your college experience and choose to make UTEP your home.
The Online Application:
Once you have your UTEP username and password log into the Resident Portal and complete your housing application. There is no deadline to submit a housing application. We accept applications year round. However, the sooner you submit your application, the greater chance you have at getting the room you would like.
Pay Your $200 Deposit:
The deposit is a $200 one-time fee required of any UTEP student that applies for housing, which serves as a reservation before they are assigned, and later as a Housing Deposit throughout their stay. The Housing Deposit will only be used in three cases by the Department: As part of a penalty imposed when a student cancels their housing contract; as payment if a student is charged with damages at the end of a housing contract; and as a final payment for rent if the student so chooses. Otherwise, this amount is credited to the student’s account if they complete their contract without damages to the apartment, and can also be returned if a student wishes to cancel their application before receiving an assignment.
We accept checks, money orders, and cash payments. If you wish to pay using a credit card, please follow this link:
Apply for Parking:
All three properties provide parking spaces specific to residents. Parking and Transportation Services do constant rounds on all of our properties to ensure that unauthorized vehicles are not parked in our spaces. Therefore, all residents with a vehicle should apply for their parking permit/decal to prevent citations from the University.
