The residence halls are more than places to sleep. Here at Schreiner University, the residence halls create a sense of community and a place to call home.

Residence Life Mission

The residence life staff encourages opportunities for community involvement, responsibility and accountability within a supportive and encouraging living-learning environment that is conducive to the growth of each student and campus community as a whole.

Residence Life Programs

The residence life staff ensures that residential students are never bored by providing an array of programs to meet the unique needs of residents. Every week residents are invited to come out to a building-wide program in each of their residence halls.

Am I required to live on-campus?
All students are required to live on-campus unless they meet one of the following requirements:

  • You are married
  • You are a single parent with dependents
  • You are a veteran of the U.S. military service
  • You are 23 years of age or older
  • You have completed 90 or more credit hours (if you are a transfer student, at least 90 hours must be accepted by Schreiner) or have already lived on campus at another university for at least three years
  • You will be enrolled in a 12-month program leading to certification or license (Vocational Nursing or Master’s programs)
  • You will be a part-time student (11 or fewer credits per semester each semester—if you become a full-time student you will have to move on campus)
  • You are living with your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) in one of the following counties: Kerr, Gillespie, Kendall, Edwards, Bandera, Real or Kimble

When will I get my housing assignment?
Housing assignments will be available via Schreiner One August 2nd. Students will need their login information that they obtained during orientation.

Can I request a roommate?
You are welcome to request a roommate, and if that person also requests you as a roommate, the match will be made. In case you meet someone during Mountaineer Days who you would like to live with, your Peer Adviser will have a form for both of you to complete to make the request.

Housing Assignments
Students that wish to retain their current room and students that wish to select a new room will be required to fill out the housing selection form between March 26th to the 30th. Those that do not retain their room during that time will lose their room.

Students that wish to select their room will go through a lottery system. The lottery system determines the order in which you sign up for your housing assignment. The lottery system is done per class starting with Seniors, then Juniors, and then Sophomores. Your lottery number will be emailed to your Schreiner email account.

On each indicated day, students will submit their housing selection form based on their classification: senior, junior, sophomore. The forms will then be used to place students into housing in order of their lottery number.

For more information about housing, please refer to the Student Handbook.
