The university housing policy requires that certain students live on campus. Certain exemptions do apply. This request may only be used if you have not submitted a housing contract and would like to be exempt from the housing requirement. If you have already submitted a housing contract, you will need to complete a Request for Cancellation in the Texas State StarRez Housing Portal and submit the required documentation.

Please note that exemption requests may take up to three (3) weeks to process.  The length of the review process depends for which reason you are submitting an exemption and the volume of previously submitted exemption requests.

Completed exemption requests need to be submitted at least three (3) weeks before new student orientation for processing. Students who fail to submit a completed exemption within three weeks of their scheduled orientation may have a delay in registering for classes.
