On campus housing is offered by Camden Miramar. You can visit www.housing.tamucc.edu for more information. To find out prices, go to “Rates and Floor Plans.” When you move into Camden Miramar apartments, you will need to bring your own sheets, blankets, and pillows. As you can see on their webpage, their residence halls and apartments are furnished, so you do not need to buy furniture.
Move-in starts about one week before classes start; however, you may be able to arrange for an earlier move-in date. You can contact them at 361/825-5000. Once you get to school, go to the Camden Miramar office to pick up the keys to your apartment or residence hall. The office is usually open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. If you make previous arrangements, you may be able to pick up your keys as late as 10:00 pm.
There is off campus housing available near campus and on the bus route. Here is a link that will give information on off-campus living: http://www.tamucc.loc101.com. If you move off-campus, you will have to check with each apartment complex to find out whether they offer furnished or unfurnished apartments. We advise that you live on-campus for at least the first year. Doing so will give you time to adapt to university and the city. It will also give you time to decide where you want to live, and you might even find friends who want to move in with you.
