After you have been accepted to the university, you can apply for housing. After you have been accepted, you will fill out a housing form provided by your Admissions Counselor.
Part of the housing application includes a section on living condition preferences (i.e., time going to bed, type of music, hobbies) which is used to match students.
If you want to room with someone specific, both people must request each other on the housing form. Housing forms and Tuition Advance should be sent in for both students before July 15th to honor roommate preferences.
A large part of ResLife at LCU is building relationships within the community here. Because of this, we offer a limited number of single rooms. Most residences for new students have rooms with two people per room.
There are two summer dates that roommate assignments will be sent out. For more information, please ask your Admissions Counselor.
It is sometimes necessary to make changes to your initial assignment due primarily to people canceling. We will notify you of changes as time permits.
Because of health sanitation and safety we do not allow pets on campus.
How can I hang pictures and decorations?
Because nails and adhesives are destructive to the walls, we only allow 3M Command Strips to be used to hang decorations.

LCU is proud to offer Wi-Fi in all buildings on campus. The easiest way for students to get connected to these networks is to stop by the ChapDesk. ChapDesk will set up any device you have on Wi-Fi, so that you can stay connected no matter where you are.
The majority of students bring their own laptop, but you don’t have to bring your own. Katie Rogers and Johnson Hall each have computers that are available for resident’s use. In addition, you will have access to printers all over campus. Each semester you will be given $25 of printing money.
All full time, single, undergraduate students who have been out of high school less than four long semesters (two years) are required to live in campus housing. Students may submit a petition to live off campus if they either live with an adult member of their immediate family or have documented medical reasons. Although they may meet requirements to live off campus, many students continue to live on campus in order to have the full advantages of the close community that develops while living in the residence halls.
