Where Can You Live?

LSSU was converted from a Fort to a College in the 1940s.  Check out the living options, from the updated barracks and captains quarters of Brady Hall and the Living Learning Communities to buildings such as Osborn Hall and the Student Village that were added later.  The campus has a unique charm of orange brick buildings that will soon feel like home.


Before you step on campus this fall, make sure you have this list completed.

  1. Confirm your enrollment in LSSU
  2. Apply for housing and sign your housing contract
  3. Pay your $150 deposit to reserve your spot (priority is June 1st for fall 2021)
  4. Register for a parking permit on Anchor Access if necessary
  5. Get ready to move-in!

Getting to Know Your Roommate

When you receive your permanent room assignment, you will also receive the name and address of your roommate(s). Over the summer, may wish to exchange mail, phone calls, or e-mail to get to know one another a little before you arrive on campus.

If you are planning to live with someone you have known from your past, you will still need to talk about your new living arrangement. Living with someone can be quite different than being friends. It can be an opportunity to deepen your friendship, but this new situation can also create challenges. Developing new college friendships can be difficult. Jealousy can develop over the balance between new friendships and your friendship. It is important to maintain open communication with one another.

Communication is the key to any relationship

Be tactful and thoughtful when sharing feelings

Learn to be a good listener

Discuss little problems as they arise to prevent escalation

Invest the time it takes to get to know your roommate

CARE about your new environment and relationships here at LSSU

Build Trust between yourself and others at LSSU

Take RESPONSIBILITY for your actions
