HOUSING APPLICATION INFORMATION FOR NEW STUDENTS

Housing is now accepting applications for new students attending the Brenham campus in Fall 2018.

Reserve your room today before it’s too late!

Students requesting to live in on-campus housing must complete the online housing application and pay a NON-REFUNDABLE application fee in order to be considered for a housing assignment. This non-refundable application fee does not guarantee a room assignment.


BEFORE YOU APPLY
Apply for admission to Blinn College at www.applytexas.org

HOW TO APPLY
The Housing Application must be filled out completely and your $125 non-refundable application fee must be processed.

  1. Login myBLINN
  2. Click on Student tab (If the Student tab is not available, please contact admissions@blinn.edu to verify the items required to complete your admissions file)
  3. Under Student, click on Residential Life
  4. Click on the Application drop down
  5. Select the “Fall 2018 New Student Housing Application”
  6. Read and agree to the Housing Agreement
  7. Complete the housing application questions and preferences
  8. You will be directed to pay the NON-REFUNDABLE APPLICATION FEE of $125. Payment is made online ONLY at the time of the application.  This must be done with a credit card or checking account/savings account (e-check). 

    • If you do not have a credit card or checking account/savings account, you can get a prepaid store credit card.  Prepaid store credit cards can be purchased from Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and many other stores. (Examples are the MasterCard Green Dot or Walmart Money Card).
    • No cash or money order can be accepted in person or by mail.

                                                                                                                                               

  • BACKGROUND CHECK REQUIREMENT
    A portion of your application fee will pay for a criminal history check. Please be aware that if you have any convictions or pending charges for a Felony, Class A Misdemeanor, or Class B Misdemeanor, you will not be able to live on-campus, and your $125 application fee will not be refunded.

 

  • OUT OF STATE STUDENTS
    If you are an Out-of-State or Out-of-Country applicant, please submit the additional Out of State background form found on our website at www.blinn.edu/housing.  This form is not required if you have always lived in Texas.

 

  • PAID & REGISTERED REQUIREMENT
    The Housing Office requires that a student be registered for a minimum of 12 hours and their bill paid in full before permitted to check in. Setting up an installment plan through the Enrollment Services Office, or accepting sufficient financial aid to cover your bill will satisfy the paid portion of the paid and registered requirement.

 

  • ROOMMATE REQUESTS
    To request a roommate, please go to your housing self-service page and click on the Room Selection drop down and choose Roommate/Suitemates.  Be sure to have the exact spelling of the name you are requesting with their email address.  To increase your chances of becoming roommates, it is important that you apply for housing around the same time and request each other.  You may request up to 3 people.

 

  • RECEIVING YOUR HOUSING ASSIGNMENT
    Please check your MyBlinn email account on a regular basis for information regarding a room assignment. 

 

  • MEAL PLANS
    All students living on-campus are required to have a meal plan. There are 3 types of meal plans:

    Blue Meal plan - $1,600, Silver Meal plan - $1,400 and the Apartment Meal plan - $1,000 (Apartment assignment only).  Please note prices are subject to change.

 

  • ROOM CANCELLATIONS
    Students who cancel their rooms prior to the start of school will have the full cost of their room removed from their bill.  Students who cancel their room after the semester starts, but within the first 8 weeks of the semester, will have a prorated cost of their room refunded. After the 9th week of school, no room refunds or proration will be made.

 

  • RENEWING YOUR ROOM
    At the end of each long semester that you have lived on campus, you will be given an opportunity to renew your housing for the next semester.  Please note that a $50 renewal fee will be applied to your account at the time a room is reserved.

 

Please continue to check the Housing website periodically for upcoming semester applications with complete instructions.
