Why not live where you can make the most of the many amenities offered by The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) at Galveston? UTMB encourages single students in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Allied Health Sciences, and Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences to take advantage of all the benefits of living in the University's on-campus dormitories.

On-campus housing offers its residents low rent and facilities that are conveniently located within walking distance of all Medical Branch buildings. This can translate into savings of time and money over long commutes and parking fees.

Enjoy clean and spacious suites in dormitories that provide a productive atmosphere for studies and a comfortable environment where you can relax. Suites have two air-conditioned bedrooms and a connecting bathroom. Each room will accommodate one student. Each room is furnished with two beds, dressers, a refrigerator, and built-in desks.

For meals students can prepare their own food in one of the easily accessible dormitory kitchens, or dine in one of the cafeterias or snack bars on campus. There is a color television set located in each of the dormitory lounges.
