Life on the Hill

Commuter Student

Students at East Texas Baptist University who are under the age of 21 are required to live in campus housing unless they are living with a parent within commuting distance of the campus or are married. This applies to the fall and spring semesters only. Students may request commuter status through Housing Application located in the StarRez Housing Portal.

Reason to request to commuter status may include:

  • Student wishes to live at home with their parent/ legal guardian. (Commuting distance must be within 60 miles of Marshall)
  • Student is single between the ages of 21-23 and wishes to live off-campus without ETBU funded scholarships.
  • Student is married or getting married on or before the first day of classes. (Married student housing is available in one of our University Park Row one-bedroom, one-bathroom units on a first-come, first-served basis.)
  • Student has children or dependents that would not be eligible to live with the student on campus.
