• HOUSING  

    Welcome  
    The CBC community seeks to promote a safe and comfortable living environment. To be eligible for campus housing, a student must be enrolled and must maintain full-time status. Full-time status is defined as 12 or more semester hours in the fall and spring semesters and 9 or more semester hours in the summer sessions. CBC offers two housing options at its Beeville campus.
