Freshmen are required to live on campus their first year. That being said, once you take a look and see the amenities you won’t want to live anywhere else.
Texas A&M Corpus Christi offers two distinct communities for Islander students: Camden Miramar and Momentum Village.
Camden Miramar is the perfect option for first year students and those who want a more traditional on-campus housing experience. There are 7 floor plans to choose from, 9 month academic year leases (with the option to sign a summer lease) and it’s just a quick walk to everything on the Island.
Momentum Village is designed with the established student in mind. It’s about a mile from campus, offers 12 month leases, and has the feel of living off-campus but with on-campus support.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Texas A&M-Corpus Christi basketball will host 14 games in 2017-18 and face a trio of power-five foes as the Islanders unveiled their 2017-18 slate Thursday. Corpus Christi aims to build off the most successful three-year stint in program history as Islanders have captured 69 victories since 2014.

The Islanders open play in less than 50 days with a home exhibition against nearby Texas A&M-Kingsville on November 2nd as they christen the Corpus Christi Athletic Club Court in the American Bank Center. The Blue and Green will play 11 of their 14 home games in the American Bank Center this coming season, with a trifecta of Dugan Wellness Center matchups.
The home schedule features Southland Conference tilts with rivals Sam Houston State on January 10 and Stephen F. Austin on February 14. Homecoming 2018 will feature a rematch of the 2017 Southland Championship Game as the Islanders host New Orleans in the American Bank Center.
Corpus Christi’s non-conference schedule is highlighted by three power-five competitions, starting with a trip to Baylor on November 13th. The Islanders head to Athens, Ga., later in the month to face SEC-foe Georgia, followed by a contest at Ole Miss in mid-December. The Blue and Green is 1-0 against the Bulldogs all-time and hold four victories against the Big 12 since the team’s inaugural 1999-2000 season.
The Islanders’ challenging non-conference schedule includes a pair of back-to-back road matchups to close out the month of November, competing against Conference-USA’s UTSA and Sun Belt-foe Texas State. Corpus Christi is on a streak of back-to-back wins against the Roadrunners and Bobcats, holding a 12-10 and 10-6 record against the two programs respectively.
The Blue and Green open the South Texas Showdown, presented by NavyArmy Community Credit Union, against UTRGV on November 15th in Corpus Christi. The Islanders have never lost to the Vaqueros, beating the side in all three of their contests played.
The Southland Conference season begins at Central Arkansas on December 28th, followed by a home contest with Lamar on the 30th. Coach Wilson’s squad is on a streak of four straight winning season’s in the Southland, and have reached the conference tournament semifinal for four consecutive years with back-to-back finals appearances.
The Blue and Green is coming off one of their most successful year’s in program history, after losing by a single point in last season’s CollegeInsider.com Tournament final. The squad’s 24 wins the previous year fell just two short of tying the all-time record of 26 the school set in 2006-07.
The Islanders return 11 players from the 2016-17 squad, led by Mid-Major All-American Ehab Amin and senior guard Joseph Kilgore. Seniors Emmanuel Toney and David Bloom also return to guide the Islanders in the 2017-18 campaign.

The U.S. Naval Academy’s football team has found that some of the team’s foot injuries last year may have been caused by the dress shoes students must wear every day. According to The Washington Post, the Midshipmen football players are not allowed to wear flip-flops or sneakers unless they are in their dorm rooms or are taking part in sports, and must wear hard-soled Oxfords.
After three consecutive losses last year, including against Army, the team discussed the source of the problem.
“We had a huge summit among the training staff, the weight room staff, equipment people,” Head Coach Ken Niumatalolo said. “What could it be? Somebody brought that up, and I thought it was a pretty valid point. Guys are walking around in hard-soled shoes all day. I have a hard enough time wearing tennis shoes.”
