Additional Information

IF YOU ARE WITHIN 27 MONTHS of high school graduation as of September 2017, you are required to reside in on-campus housing. Do not sign a lease agreement for off-campus housing unless you are eligible to live off-campus. Anyone living in violation of the University Housing Policy will be recalled or de-registered to part-time academic status.

RESERVATION OF A UNIT is determined by the date we receive your Advanced Room & Board Payment. To ensure retention of the location you signed up for, $200 must be received by June 1, 2017. If not paid on or before June 1st you will lose your place in line for the preference you have requested. This policy is in place to accommodate those who have met their financial obligations first.

IF YOUR PLANS CHANGE and you need to cancel your housing application please do so by June 1, 2017 to receive a full refund. A $100 fee is assessed for all cancellations received after June 1st.

SUMMER HOUSING APPLICATIONS will be available for participating summer students during Sign-up and thereafter. The weekly rate is $70.00 (minimum stay three weeks) payable in advance. The balance of summer rent and required summer damage deposit must be paid in full prior to occupancy. If payment in full is not an option for you, you will be required to set up a payment plan through Anchor Access for the balance. All summer residents reside in the apartments.

To request special accommodations, in addition to filling out the housing application, it is required that you register with the LSSU Office of Accessibility Services. The director of the Accessibility Services will verify your disability and advise housing staff of appropriate accommodation. Housing staff will facilitate the housing accommodation based on application date and availability. Questions about accessible student housing may be directed to Mr. Scott Korb, Director of Campus Life and Housing.
