2010 Graduate Catalog
Graduate Residence Accomodations
The Department of Residence Life and Student Housing operates two apartment residence halls designated primarily, for graduate students.
an efficiency apartment hall, houses single and married graduate students, and married undergraduate students. Martin Hall also houses some senior undergraduates.
a one-bedroom-apartment facility, houses single graduate students, married students (graduate and undergraduate) with families and some senior undergraduates. Families with no more than two children may be housed in Hawk Hall. Also located in Hawk Hall is the SMU Preschool and Child Care Center.
Students having special housing needs because of a disability should contact RLSH and the Office of Disability Accommodations and Success Strategies prior to submitting the housing application. Whenever possible, the housing staff will work with that student in adapting the facility to meet special needs.
Each apartment is equipped with a telephone, local telephone service, voice mail system and wireless Ethernet connections to the University’s computer system. All residence halls are air-conditioned and some have individually climate-controlled rooms. Washing machines and dryers are located in all residence halls. Meal plans are not required in graduate halls.
New graduate students should submit the completed application and contract to RLSH with a check or money order for $100 made payable to Southern Methodist University for the nonrefundable housing deposit.
Priority of assignment is based on the date on which applications are received by RLSH. Notification of assignment will be made by RLSH. Rooms are contracted for the full academic year (fall and spring terms). Rent for the fall term will be billed and is payable in advance for students who register before August 1, and rent for the spring term will be billed and is payable in advance for students who register before December 1. Students who enroll after these dates must pay at the time of enrollment. Rent for the full academic year will be due and payable should a student move from the residence hall at any time during the school year. Accommodations for shorter periods are available only by special arrangement with the executive director of RLSH before acceptance of the housing contract.
