Student Campus Housing & Registration

Students are housed in Samuelson Hall on the Texas Christian University (TCU) campus in Fort Worth, TX.

Students register Sunday, July 9, 2017. Second year students are prepared to help make your move-in a little easier.

Dress comfortably - it will be hot! Additional information about registration location and suitemate assignments will be emailed to you prior to school.

You are placed on a floor with other SCMS students.

  • Dorm accommodations are all single sleeping rooms. There are one, two, and four room combinations, each with one or two bathrooms, a micro fridge, and a microwave.  
  • The majority of sleeping rooms have full sized beds. There are a few twin beds. Each room has a dresser and closet.
  • One (1) set of bed linens and towels are in your room when you check in.

The dorm’s front desk is staffed at pre-scheduled hours the day. They can help you in the residence hall and assist with emergencies.

Watch for information about internet access.
