Services

Housing services

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi offers two distinct housing communities to meet the diverse needs of all Islanders.  First-year (freshman) students are not required to live on-campus but it is strongly recommended.  Students who live on-campus for at least one year are more active in campus events and activities, create a better support network, have a higher GPA, and are more likely to graduate on time than students who live off-campus.

Student Life

Campus life

  • Miramar is the perfect option for first year students and those who want a more traditional on-campus housing experience.  There are 7 residence hall and apartment floor plans to choose from, 9 month academic year leases (with the option to sign a summer lease) and it’s just a quick walk to everything on the Island. 
  • Momentum Village is the best option for established students who want the benefits of on-campus housing and the feel of off-campus living.  It is located on our Momentum Campus, just steps away from athletic and intramural fields, and features apartment and townhome floor plans with 12 month leases (August-July 31). 

Sports facilities

All of our Group Fitness classes welcome participants of all fitness levels, from beginner to advanced. Although our instructors are able to provide modifications and/or variations to accommodate our participants, it is crucial for you as the participant to be aware of your limits and listen to your body’s current abilities and needs. We recommend new participants to ask questions and to notify the instructor of any previous injuries or conditions that may limit or increase the risk of injury.
