Before You Request Your Space


Does Texas State allow minors in the Residence Halls during camps?

Yes we do.  We have many camps on campus with attendees ranging in age from Elementary school kids to adults. If your organization intends to have minors in attendance, your sponsors and leaders must undergo the Campus Program for Minors / Child Protection Training. 

Do you require that a department sponsor camps?

Yes we do.  All external camps must have a campus sponsor in order to comply with University policies and procedures.  Click here for campus sponsorship requirements

How far in advance do you require reservations for the summer?

We generally open our reservations system on November 1st, and will accept reservations at any time after that.  We would appreciate reservations by March 31st, in order to organize the appropriate staff and halls for coverage.

Check-out is prior to 11 AM. Failure to check-out by 11 AM will result in the group being charged for an additional day.
