Jess Gamez is dedicated to helping create a wonderful, memorable experience for students living in the residence halls at A&M-Commerce. She enjoys developing meaningful relationships with students and their families as she helps them to understand and become active participants in the housing contract and room selection process.

How I Can Help You?

I help students to understand and complete the housing application and room selection process before they arrive to campus. Once students are on campus, I help students if they are requesting a room change or who need break housing.
