UTEP offers some of the finest and most affordable on-campus housing.  The Department of Residence Life is dedicated to creating a living learning community that is vital to the UTEP college experience.  Students living on campus tend to achieve higher grades, have more leadership opportunities, and graduate at higher rates than their non-resident counterparts.  All on-campus housing is conveniently located within a five-minute walk from all points of campus.

Students can choose from six different styles of apartments: efficiencies for one or two students, one bedroom, two-bedroom and four-bedroom units. Some of the bedrooms are private and some are shared space.  All apartments are equipped with high-speed Internet and cable television connections.  They are fully furnished (living room: couch, chair, coffee table, end table, kitchen table, and chairs. Bedroom: bed, dresser, desk, and desk chair).

One low monthly payment includes all utilities (electricity, refrigerated air, gas, water, sewer, and trash removal), high-speed Internet and basic cable television.

All rooms are assigned on a first come, first serve basis.  Interested students should submit a housing application and a $200 deposit.  No rooms are reserved without the receipt of the deposit.  Variable lease options are available which enable students to live on campus during the academic year only or on a year-round basis if they choose.

For information on current rates or to take a tour of Miner Village or Miner Heights, please give us a call or come by.

An institution of higher education is entitled to obtain from the department criminal history record information maintained by the department that relates to a student, or to an applicant for admission as a student, who applies to reside in on-campus housing at the institution. Criminal history record information obtained by an institution of higher education may be used by the chief of police of the institution or by the institution's housing office only for the purpose of evaluating current students or applicants for enrollment who apply to reside in on-campus housing at the institution. The institution shall notify a student who is the subject of the criminal history record information of any use of the information to deny the student the opportunity to reside in on-campus housing at the institution. Criminal history record information received by an institution of higher education may not be released or disclosed to any person except on court order or with the consent of the person who is the subject of the criminal history record information. As soon as practicable after the beginning of the academic period for which the person's housing application was submitted, all criminal history record information obtained about a person, including any copy of the content of that information held by the institution, shall be destroyed by the chief of police of the institution of higher education or by the institution's housing office, as applicable.
