Living on Campus
Welcome to Housing & Dining! Much of your college education will occur outside of the classroom. To make the most of your Pioneer experience, consider living on campus with University Housing & Dining!
By living on campus, you will stay in touch with the heartbeat of TWU. You will also be centrally located near classes, libraries, dining halls, campus events and other “can’t miss” foundations of the TWU experience.
Make yourself at home on our website. If you still have questions please contact our office for assistance. We look forward to serving you.

Health & Well-Being
Mental Health Services
We recognize this is a challenging time for everyone. Embedded Housing psychologist Dr. Kristina Rodriguez and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) staff want to do their best to be supportive while also protecting the safety and well-being of clients and staff. The following information serves as the current plan for providing mental health services this fall semester.
Per recent recommendations from the CDC and governing organizations in the field, CAPS will primarily conduct therapy sessions via confidential video conference or phone. To inquire further about services or schedule an intake session, please call the main CAPS office at 940-898-3801.
Additionally, all group therapy and outreach events/workshops will be conducted virtually through video conference.
If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, you may call the TWU Department of Public Safety at 940-898-2911 and ask to speak to the on-call therapist, both during and after business hours. You may also utilize other crisis resources including your nearest emergency room, 911, or the following:

Illness on Campus
If you develop any symptoms related to COVID-19, stay in or return to your on campus room. Submit your information to the TWU COVID-19 Reporting Form and contact Student Health Services or your medical provider. Contact your Residence Director so that arrangements can be made for food and other necessities while you await further guidance on required isolation, as applicable.
TWU has set aside rooms that will serve as isolation rooms for residents who develop symptoms related to or are exposed to COVID-19. When the student is assigned to an isolation room, they will receive information from Housing & Dining regarding what to bring and procedures for food delivery, trash pickup, laundry, medication procurement and facilities work order requests.
The resident will be responsible for packing their own items to bring with them to the isolation space. They should pack enough personal effects (clothing, toiletries, personal electronics, educational materials, etc.) to last at least 3 weeks. The housing staff will ensure that there are linens and towels in the room and will be communicating with the student on a daily basis.
Additional guidance and protocols will be provided by the housing staff at time of isolation.
