The LSU Department of Residential Life is committed to the academic success and personal growth of the campus community. The world-class facilities, scholars, and programs available at residents’ doorsteps consistently prove their value with on-campus first-year students having higher retention rates to second year, higher GPAs, and higher graduation rates than their off-campus peers.
The on-campus experience gives students the best of both worlds – a supportive environment to grow personally and academically along with enjoying the convenience and majesty of living among LSU’s stately oaks and broad magnolias. Residential Life’s 20 residence halls are organized as residential colleges, the Honors House, themed housing, and traditional halls. Upper-class students also have two on-campus apartment complexes from which to choose. With so many options, there’s something for everyone.
