The house is over 5,000 square feet & it is divided up into 2 sections. We have a female dorm (holds 8-10) and a separate male dorm (holds up 12) with bunk beds. There is a refrigerator, stove & a microwave available for use. That is all on one side of the house. One restroom for the male students to share & one restroom for the female students to share only. We also do not provide any meals. The other side is where we live & we manage the property. We live approximately 12 miles from TAMUK so students are required to find their own transpiration to & from the university.
