Paid and Registered Requirements

All students are required to register for a minimum of 12 credit hours to receive and maintain a room assignment. Students who drop below 12 credit hours at any time may have their room assignment canceled.

The Housing and Residence Life Office requires that a student be registered for a minimum of 12 credit hours and their bill paid in full before permitted to check in. Setting up an installment plan through their myBLINN account or accepting sufficient financial aid to cover your bill will satisfy the paid portion of the paid and registered requirement.

Refundable Damage Deposit

The $100 refundable damage deposit is due once you complete the housing application and pay the fee. You will need to log into myBLINN and pay the $100 refundable damage deposit. This deposit will be refunded to your student account at the end of the academic year. Please note that this deposit will be applied to any outstanding balances on your account (damages to your room, parking tickets, etc.). This deposit must be paid to receive a room assignment.

Background Check Requirements

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 or $50 housing term renewal fee will not be refunded.

Out-of-State Students

If you are an out-of-state or out-of-country resident, please monitor your Blinn email account for an email from HireRight. Included in the email is a link for you to complete your background information. This information is necessary for a background check.

Meal Plan

The Housing and Residence Life Office will assign the student a meal plan once you have a room assignment. A meal plan is required for students living on campus. If your room assignment is in a residence hall, you will be assigned a blue meal plan. If your room assignment is in the apartments, you will receive an apartment meal plan. All students living on campus are required to have a meal plan. There are three types of meal plans.

Room Cancellation

Students who cancel their rooms prior to the start of school will have the full cost of room and board removed from their bill. There are no refunds issued if a student moves out of their room, unless they also withdraw from courses at Blinn prior to the 8th week of classes. After the start of the 8th week of classes, no refunds are provided.
