Things to Know Before Applying for Housing:
- FALL 2014 APPLICATIONS:
- Undergraduate Housing – Due to high demand, MALE applications for fall 2014 are now being put on a STANDBY LIST as of 07/12/2014. Female applications are still being accepted as normal.
- Family & Graduate Housing – Fall 2014 applications are still being accepted, but there are currently vacancies in Nicholson Unit II only. Spaces may become available in Nicholson Unit I and Edward Gay Apartments as cancellations are received.
- Applications for fall 2015 undergraduate housing (residence halls & upperclassmen apartments) will be available once LSU Undergraduate Admissions begins admitting students for fall 2015 on October 1, 2014.
- Once admitted to the university (including provisionally admitted students), students can then apply for on-campus housing by clicking ‘Apply Now’ below. The housing application is a separate application from admission to LSU.
- Building and room assignments are based on the date of housing application (not the university application), so the earlier you apply, the better.
- Make sure you know if you’ll select a residential college, Honors House, or living-learning community as your housing preference on the application, or if you’ll go the traditional hall route. With so many options, there’s something for everyone!
- If you apply for residential colleges, the Honors House, or the Leadership & Service Community, you can provide preferred roommate information on the application, since the Residential Life staff will assign your room in the spring.
- If you decided to go the traditional hall route, you will be able to select your own room online in the spring and invite a roommate at that time. Because of that, roommate information is not necessary on the housing application.
- For our Tigers who are married, have dependent family members living with them, are graduate students, or are 21+ years old, apply for the Family & Graduate housing options – Ed Gay Apartments and Nicholson Units I & II Apartments. You can also come by the Family & Graduate Housing Office in the Ed Gay Apartments area to complete the application.
- There is no first-year residency requirement. On-campus housing is not guaranteed, but the Res Life goal is to provide housing for all who want to live on campus.
Ready, Set, Geaux Apply:
- Once you’ve been admitted to LSU, you’re ready to apply for housing. Apply as soon as you’re admitted to LSU!
- Have your LSU PAWS username and password ready to enter the online application. You received your PAWS information when you were admitted to LSU. For help obtaining this information, contact the ITS Help Desk.
- The application requires a $150 deposit/application fee. Using a credit card online also adds a $5 non-refundable processing fee. You can complete a manual applicaiotn in Grace King Hall and submit a check or money order with it.
- Be sure to review the housing rates, housing options, and details of the housing contract before submitting your application.
- Then, apply!
