Terms and Conditions
This complex is for married couples, with or without children, and single students with children. At least one resident in each apartment must be a DTS student taking a minimum of six credit hours per semester at the Dallas campus toward a degree (summer not required) or Ph.D. students making reasonable progress in their studies. The lease period is for 12 months and eligible residents may renew annually in May; specific amendments will be available for those graduating in Summer/December. The only pets allowed are birds and fish.
The waiting list may be consistently long. Newly admitted students should therefore not depend solely upon occupying a campus apartment during their first year at DTS and should explore off-campus options for back-up living arrangements. Please contact the Housing Office for information about off-campus opportunities.
There are laundry facilities located on each floor in the building.
There is one assigned parking space allotted per bedroom (i.e. one-bedroom apartments allotted one spot, study does not count as bedroom even though can be used as one, and two-bedroom apartments are allotted two spots).
The DTS Campus Police is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
