THE FALL 2017 HOUSING APPLICATION WILL OPEN APRIL 10, 2017
FOR NEW STUDENTS – BRENHAM CAMPUS ONLY
HOW TO APPLY
Please apply early! Housing spaces are limited and there is no guarantee of a room assignment. The Housing Application must be filled out completely and your $125 application fee must be processed.
BACKGROUND CHECK REQUIREMENT
A portion of your application fee will pay for a criminal history check. Please be aware that if you have any convictions or pending charges for a Felony, Class A Misdemeanor, or Class B Misdemeanor, you will not be able to live on-campus, and your $125 application fee will not be refunded.
OUT OF STATE STUDENTS
If you are an Out-of-State or Out-of-Country applicant, please submit the additional Out of State background form found on our website at www.blinn.edu/housing. This form is not required if you have always lived in Texas.
PAID & REGISTERED REQUIREMENT
The Housing Office requires that a student be registered for a minimum of 12 hours and their bill paid in full before receiving an assignment. Setting up an installment plan through the Enrollment Services Office, or accepting sufficient financial aid to cover your bill will satisfy the paid portion of the paid and registered requirement.
RECEIVING YOUR HOUSING ASSIGNMENT
Once you have completed your housing application, and paid your $125 application fee, you will be placed on a list of students awaiting housing assignments, ordered by day and time of application. Please check your MyBlinn email account on a regular basis for information regarding a room assignment. However, you will only be considered for a room assignment when you enroll in 12 or more hours and have financial obligations in place to cover your expenses.
Once you have been assigned to a room, you will be mailed an assignment letter in addition to the MyBlinn e-mail.
All students living on-campus are required to have a meal plan. There are 3 types of meal plans:
Blue Meal plan - $1,600, Silver Meal plan - $1,400 and the Apartment Meal plan - $1,000 (Apartment assignment only)
Students who cancel their rooms prior to the start of school will have the full cost of their room removed from their bill. Students who cancel their room after the semester starts, but within the first 8 weeks of the semester, will have a prorated cost of their room refunded. After the 9th week of school, no room refunds or proration will be made.
RENEWING YOUR ROOM
At the end of each long semester that you have lived on campus, you will be given an opportunity to renew your housing for the next semester. Please note that a $50 renewal fee will be applied to your account at the time a room is reserved.
Please continue to check the Housing website periodically for upcoming semester applications with complete instructions.
