Housing Requirements

The Department of Residence Life at Texas Wesleyan University supports the mission of the university by providing students with a comfortable and convenient living environment while offering opportunities for increased campus involvement, social interaction and academic assistance. In support of the mission of the University and in recognition of the value of the on-campus residential experience, beginning the fall of 2011, all students with less than 30 college credit hours who are under the age of 21 are required to live in on-campus university housing unless they are married, divorced, live with their parents or have a dependent child. The Department of Residence Life in conjunction with the Dean of Students Office will review requests for an exemption to this policy on an individual basis.

If you do not wish to live on campus or feel you do not need a meal plan, please send in the Housing/Meal Plan Waiver .

  1. At the beginning of each academic year, Texas Wesleyan will inform students residing in on-campus housing that the University will notify either a parent or an individual selected by the student not later than 24 hours after the time the student is determined to be missing. This information will include the following:
    1. Students have the option of identifying an individual to be contacted by Wesleyan not later than 24 hours after the time the student has been determined to be missing. Students can register this confidential contact information through the Housing Office.
    2. If the student is under 18 years of age, and not an emancipated individual, Wesleyan is required to notify a custodial parent or guardian not later than 24 hours after the time that the student is determined to be missing.
    3. Wesleyan will notify the appropriate law enforcement agency not later than 24 hours after the time that the student is determined to be missing.
    4. If Texas Wesleyan Security or law enforcement personnel has been notified and makes a determination that a student who is the subject of a missing person report has been missing for more than 24 hours and has not returned to campus, Wesleyan will initiate the emergency contact procedures in accordance with the student's designation.
  2. The University will follow the following notification procedure for a missing student who resides in on-campus housing:
    1. Once the University receives a missing student report via the Dean's Office, University Security, Housing Office or other source, the following offices will be notified:

    2. Any official missing person report relating to this student shall be referred immediately to Security.
    3. If University Security, after investigating the official report, determines the student has been missing for more than 24 hours, Wesleyan will contact the individual identified by the student, the custodial parent or legal guardian if the student is under 18 and not emancipated, or local law enforcement if these do not apply.
  3. Upon notification from any entity that any student may be missing, Wesleyan may use any of the following resources to assist in locating the student. These resources may be used in any order and combination.
    1. Through the Housing Office, the Resident Assistant may be asked to assist in physically locating the student by keying into the student's assigned room and talking with known associates.
