Generally, an applicant must reside and establish a domicile in the state of Texas for a period of one year prior to enrolling as a student.
You are a Virginia resident for tuition purposes, not a Texas resident. You do not reside in Texas.
Take a look at the Texas Core Residency Questionnaire - it has a flowchart in it with a BUNCH of questions that go way beyond just simply "where do you vote and pay taxes", or "where are you currently living"? Unfortunately, the flowchart doesn't terminate in a nice clear "YES/NO" decision, so you just have to fill out the relevant sections, send it in and see what they decide.
No harm in filling out the form. Let UT tell you you're not a resident, not my man Big Zuck.
