Parent Information


  • RamFam Welcome!

    More than a place to live

    Parents & guardians play an important role in the success of students. We’ve heard your feedback regarding the preference to discuss options and make decisions together. With that in mind, we have created information that may be of special interest to parents or guardians. We hope that families and friends will be interested in what is offered on campus and will encourage their students to seek out our services and assistance.

    We encourage you to explore other areas of our website. Please feel free to browse frequently to keep up-to-date on the important announcements we are sending to our residents.

    As in any area of our website, we appreciate your feedback on this section. Please let us know if the information provided is helpful to you or if there something else you would like to see included. Please direct comments to housing@angelo.edu. We look forward to hearing from you.

    • Clarification on the Housing Policy Exemption Process

      For purposes of the Housing Policy Exemption process, “full-time established residence” shall be defined as having proof of established full-time primary residence in San Angelo (or the approved 100-mile radius of the campus) for a minimum of one year prior to requesting exemption to the Housing policy. Exceptions for employment or military transfer will be considered with supporting documentation.

      For students requesting exemption to the Housing Policy based on living with a sibling, in addition to meeting the requirements for full-time established residence, the sibling must meet at least ONE of the following exemption criteria:

      • Be at least 21 years of age
      • Have earned 60 or more semester credit hours
    • Changes Related to Contract Cancellation Requests

      Please Note: Deadlines with Financial Implications.

      Students who meet University requirements to live off campus will have until August 15 (or January 10 for Spring Cancellations) to request contract cancellation (in writing) without penalty.  You may do so by emailing the housing office at housing@angelo.edu  After August 15, students meeting the requirements to live off campus who request cancellation of their Housing Contract will have their request reviewed by an exemptions committee to determine if they will be released and may be subject to Liquidated Damages Charges.  These charges must be paid prior to the first day of classes in order to secure contract release. This is the same process that has been in place for several years for students requesting mid-year (December) contract cancellation.

      There are a couple of exceptions to the assessment of liquidated damage charges:

      • Graduating or not enrolling at ASU.
      • Getting married prior to the start of the applicable semester.
      • Student teaching, study abroad or Internship that requires you to live in another town at a distance of greater than 70 miles from the campus.
    • Contract Cancellation vs. Housing Exemption

      Contract cancellation is a separate and different process from the Housing Policy Exemption process. Housing Policy Exemption deals specifically with students who are required to live on campus under the provisions of the University‘s Housing Policy. Contract cancellation more typically applies to students who are not required to live on campus, but who are seeking to break their academic year Housing contract. If you have questions about either process, please contact us at housing@angelo and let us review your specific situation with you.

    • Renters Insurance

      The University assumes no liability for damage to or loss of personal property.  As such, we strongly encourage students to carry some form of renters insurance so that in the event of theft, accident, vandalism, flood, or other incident, their personal property is protected.  While we work closely with our maintenance staff to keep our facilities in appropriate working order, no system is without the possibility of problems. Additionally, while most of our students are well-behaved and respectful of the buildings and their peers, like any community of our size, we are not immune to incidents of vandalism or theft.

      In the small box at the top right hand side of this page, we have provided links to some reputable insurance companies that offer low cost policies specifically for college students. You may also choose to check with your personal insurance agent or company

     

  • Living Learning Communities
    • The purpose of a living learning community is to bring together groups of students with a common academic interest or group goal. As a cohort, students experience the year together. This experience includes shared courses, study groups, social activities, and educational activities designed to give students marketable and transferable skills or to increase their general knowledge base on a given subject.  Students who have chosen to expand their education through shared learning experiences that happen both in and out of the classroom.  By participating in a living learning community, you agree to attend events and programs hosted by the Residential Programs staff as well as the other faculty and staff involved in the LLC.  Students participating in the LLC will live in a selected area of a residence hall together.

      There are four living learning communities available:

      • Agriculture: Must be an Ag major (Location: Plaza Verde)
      • GeoSciences: Must be a GeoSciences major (Location: Plaza Verde)
      • Engineering: Must be an Engineering major  (Location: Plaza Verde)
      • First Generation: Must be a first generation student (Location: Carr Hall)
      • Honors: Must be in the Honors Program (Location: Texan Hall)
      • Outdoor Adventures (New!) (Location: Robert Massie)
      • Leadership (New!) (Location: Centennial Village)

      National research states that there are several benefits to students who participate in an LLC:

      • Students are engaged and involved on campus
      • Traditionally retention rates are increased with LLC participation
      • The ability to connect their academic work to activities outside the classroom
      • Students feel more connected to their peers, faculty, and University at large
