Housing Scholarships at Texas Tech University

Housing scholarships are scholarships provided to cover for students’ accomodation. Most scholarships do not cover housing tuition, as a result, University Student Housing at Texas Tech university came up with a couple of housing scholarships to support students in school.

University Student Housing believes in assisting students in meeting the financial obligations of attending college and living on campus. We also provide scholarships to our student staff members to help them work and learn at Texas Tech University. I have five distinct housing scholarships for you.
