New single requests can be considered when you indicate your request with your contract housing choices online. Singles are offered based on availability and original date of application.

Is gender-inclusive housing offered?

The room selection process is administered with rooms labeled by gender and provides available bed spaces based on your gender marker with the university. If you have questions or concerns regarding living options based on your gender marker not matching your gender identity, please contact our housing team so that we can work with you on an individual basis.

What if I don’t identify as the gender indicated on my UT record?

As an enrolled student, you can change your gender marker by submitting a signed letter to the Registrar requesting the gender marker change. Include your EID, date of birth, full name and phone number in the request. The gender choices for this process are F and M. Questions regarding this process can be directed to the office of Student Academic Records located in the Main Tower (MAI 16) by email or calling 512-475-7644.
