All student housing is  NON-SMOKING. 

Individual student housing is available to students at a minimum cost in facilities that are owned and operated by TSTC Sweetwater. Resident housing is offered on a contractual basis for terms concurrent with school terms at the Sweetwater Campus. Students required to live on campus are accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis. Resident housing is then rented on a first-come, first-served basis for those students not required to live on campus by the mandatory housing policy. All housing is available without regard to race, age, color, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin, gender or disability. Housing for disabled students is available on a limited basis.

TSTC West Texas provides a clean, wholesome residential living environment that supports student growth and development outside the classroom. The student's residence is a place that he/she calls home and in which the student works and relaxes.

Facilities and services are designed to be conducive to study and compatible with the rights and responsibilities of the individual or group. TSTC West Texas seeks to create a sense of community for campus residents.

  • Pillows and linens for regular twin bed;

Mandatory Housing Policy

All students must reside in campus housing unless they are exempt based on one or more of the following criteria: 

  • Over the age of 21;  
  • Married;   
  • Parent or legal guardian of a child/children who lives at the student's permanent address;  
  • Live with parents or other relatives within a fifty-mile radius of Texas State Technical College West Texas, Sweetwater Campus, as determined by the Texas State Mileage Guide and interpreted by the Associate Vice President for Student Development;  
  • Enrolled as a part-time student, taking nine hours per semester or less;  
  • Enrolled only for evening classes (i.e., EMS students);  
  • Possess a health condition that requires special medical attention and/or facilities unavailable in campus housing.
Students who do not fit any of the above criteria, but who desire an exemption from this policy, may submit a written request for exemption, providing a detailed supportive rationale, to the Associate Vice President of Student Development. An exemption may be granted on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Associate Vice President of Student Development.

Students who are required to live on campus, but choose not to abide by this policy, will be assessed room and board fees. Failure to fulfill this financial obligation will result in the cancellation of class registration.

Housing Facilities and Procedures

Texas State Technical College West Texas, Sweetwater Campus, offers three styles of student housing.   



Bluebonnet Inn

The apartments have a total student capacity of 96 students. The maximum capacity per apartment is four residents, with two per bedroom. Requests for single occupancy are granted only when a documented medical condition warrants or when rooms are available. The 72 single-occupancy residence houses the college bookstore and laundry/vending area. The double-occupancy residence houses 48 students bringing the total, on-campus housing capacity to 216.

To reserve a room, a student must complete the housing application and submit the required $225.00 deposit to the college's Housing Office.

Housing deposits should be in the form of a personal or certified check, credit card or a money order made payable to Texas State Technical College West Texas. The college will retain $150.00 as a deposit for property loss or damage, excessive cleaning and repairs and $75.00 for a cleaning fee. The deposit will be refunded to the student upon official withdrawal from campus housing, minus any charges for damages, etc., incurred. To qualify for a housing deposit refund, the student must notify the Supervisor of Housing, in writing, 30 days prior to the start of the term. Students should allow 30 days for refunds.

Once the housing application and deposit are received, confirmation of the room reservation will be sent to the applicant. Notification of housing assignments and roommates will also be given. A Resident Housing Agreement and Residence Life Rules and Regulations will be provided when the student moves in. The Residence Life Rules and Regulations requires the student's signature before he or she may move into campus or auxiliary housing.

If resident housing capacity is reached, applicants not yet assigned to campus housing will be notified. If a student is required to live on campus, or if a student wants to live on campus, that student will be placed in auxiliary off-campus housing and will eventually be relocated to campus housing.
