Prairie View A&M University’s residence life and housing services philosophy is grounded in community living and learning, exploration, self direction, development and residential life responsibility. It challenge lies in the students’ ability to successfully integrate individual and university community goals through living-learning experiences that are both educational and contributory in nature. The residential life/student housing staff serves as the primary resource for guidance in all areas of residential life, and is responsible for supporting the university’s co-curricular life mission.

The Department of Residence Life is organized around four vital university functions: Housing administration, student development, quality residential community services and student judicial process. The administrative offices are located on the first floor of Willie A. Tempton Sr. Memorial Student Center, Room 106. The departments “open door’ policy seeks to encourage daily interaction with students, student-athletes, student housing management, staff and faculty.
