Living on campus in University-sponsored housing is both convenient and cost-effective, but, more importantly, it enriches a student's college experience. Students living on campus build closer relationships with other students and are more engaged in campus organizations and immersed in campus life.Additionally, students who live in campus housing enjoy amenities ranging from on-campus parking to residence hall socials, as well as easy access to tutorial services and study groups. Residence halls are air conditioned and are equipped with reception areas, study rooms, microwaves, cable television, local phone service with voice mail capabilities, and computer rooms. Campus housing costs include room rent, utilities and a meal ticket. To ensure safety, students living on campus have access to a van service in the evenings.
With some exceptions for students who live with family members, University regulations require all full-time freshmen to live in campus housing during their first year. All other students are eligible for campus housing as well. Students wishing to apply for campus housing must submit a housing application with the required application fee to the Department of Housing located in the Student Union, Room 135; call (337) 482-6471 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Housing and roommate assignments are made as they are received, so students are encouraged to file applications early in the spring prior to their planned fall semester enrollment.
UL Lafayette currently operates six residence halls, capable of housing over 3,000 students, and an apartment-style complex with over 600 units. Apartment-style family housing is available to students who are married or who have dependent children in their care.
