Texarkana College provides on-campus housing for men and women in an apartment style facility. It features 12 one-student efficiency apartments with a kitchenette, bathroom, and closet. Students may reserve space in college housing by completing a Housing Application available online at https://www.texarkanacollege.edu/campus-life/residence-life/campus-apartment-application/.

Applications should be returned to the Director of Admissions and Recruitment, Texarkana College, 2500 North Robison Road, Texarkana, Texas 75599.

Students should be aware that housing reservations will be handled on a space-available basis. The College also reserves the right to change, prior to the beginning of a semester, the rates charged for room rentals; however, this will be done only when absolutely necessary to cover costs. Students are allowed to have small microwaves in their rooms.

Total Charges & Payment Terms

Room charges for the entire semester are due and payable – either in full or by completing an installment agreement – at registration.

Campus Housing (Apartments) are $2,000.00 per Fall / Spring semester (5 months) and $400.00 per month during June and July Summer sessions.

Installment Schedule: Students wishing to pay room charges in installments must make arrangements through the Texarkana College Business Office prior to the first day of class. Failure to meet installment obligations will result in severe penalties, including placing a hold on the student’s record when accounts become 30 days past due.

Housing Deposit

A $200.00 housing deposit is required in advance to reserve an apartment in the apartment complex. This also serves as a property deposit, and any damages or shortages at the time the student vacates the room will be deducted from the amount. Circumstances under which the deposit will be refunded are covered fully in the Texarkana College Housing Application. The Texarkana College Board of Trustees reserves the right to adjust college housing room and board charges in accordance with operational costs.

Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination

During the 2009 Texas legislative session, House Bill 4189 (HB 4189) was passed and signed into law. HB 4189 requires that any incoming new student who lives on campus must either receive a vaccination against bacterial meningitis (10 days prior to moving in) or meet certain criteria for declining such a vaccination before they can live on campus. Students who are living on campus will be required to provide verification of vaccination against bacterial meningitis. Documentation must be provided at the time of application.

Security

The Director of Admissions and Recruitment provides direct supervision of residence hall security personnel, policies and procedures, and along with other college officials, reserves the right to forcibly remove any student from the campus who poses an immediate threat to the health and safety of the College environment. The Texarkana College Department of Public Safety monitors the apartment complex with surveillance cameras.

Texarkana College is entitled to obtain from the Texas Department of Public Safety criminal history record information maintained by the department that relates to a student, or to an applicant for admission as a student, who applies to reside in on-campus housing at the institution.
