You must complete the bottom portion of the Damage Deposit Disposition Card in order to receive the remainder of your damage deposit back after Spring 2020 check out. Please return the completed card as soon as possible to the Campus Life & Housing Office.

Additional Information

IF YOU ARE WITHIN 27 MONTHS of high school graduation as of September 2020, 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 May 1, 2020 (returning students), June 1, 2020 (new students). If not paid on or before the appropriate date 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.  This fee has been waiver for fall 2020.

IF YOUR PLANS CHANGE and you need to cancel your housing application please do so by the appropriate date, to receive a full refund. A $100 fee is assessed for all cancellations received after May 1st (returning students), and June 1st (new students).

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 Sharmay Wood, Director of Campus Life and Laker Success.
