Residence Life and Housing

The residence life experience is an important part of your college journey, and we are proud of the unique and supportive environment cultivated by the students of our lakeshore campus.

Residence Halls are more than a place to sleep, it’s your home—meet new people, engage in the experiences, take advantage of the opportunities around you. Living on campus you’ll be within walking distance of classes, club meetings, dining, bus stops, fitness centers, the health center, events and more.


Returning Students Housing Application 

For more information on how to apply and the dates of the application and selection please visit the Returning Student Room Selection.


Residence Life and Housing, in partnership with our residents, creates and maintains caring, inclusive communities where all Lakers know they belong and students live together, supported, and connected.


Residence Life and Housing will offer students more than just a place to live.  We are committed to facilitating the success of our students by creating holistic living experiences where students learn to become engaged leaders within their communities and beyond.
