Residence halls are available to students who do not have children residing with them who wish to live on campus.
All full-time undergraduate students who do not have children residing with them and who attend class on the Harrogate campus must reside on campus unless:
- the student is at least 21 years of age, regardless of class ranking;
- the student is residing with a parent or legal guardian within 65 miles of campus; or
- the student is married and residing with their spouse.
All student-athletes who receive at least $1.00 of scholarship funds are required to live on campus.
There are several types of on-campus housing available at varying costs:
- Liles and West Halls - These residence halls, considered community housing, are traditional halls with centrally located community bathroom facilities.
- Lafrentz Poole Hall - This residence hall is a co-ed facility with individual private rooms and baths. The hall is primarily for upper-classmen.
- Pope, Mitchell and Dishner- These are co-ed facilities with 3 private bedrooms per unit (each bedroom has a private bathroom and a walk-in closet). A large living room/kitchen area is shared by the occupants.
- Shelton and Langley - These are co-ed facilities with 3 private bedrooms per unit (each bedroom has a private bathroom and a walk-in closet). A large living room/kitchen area is shared by the occupants. Currently, these facilities are housing graduate students.
- The Village (Burchett, McClelland, Norton, and Peters) - These are coed facilities housing 6 people in 3 bedrooms per unit (each bedroom has a bathroom and two walk-in closets). A large living room/kitchen area is shared by the occupants.
An application for housing or housing waiver must be completed by all applicants for admission (see Housing and Residence Life online).
Students should reference the Railsplitter Community Standards Guide for information, rules, and regulations applicable to students living in LMU housing.
All undergraduate students living in the residence halls, with the exception of married students, are required to participate in one of the LMU Meal Plans.
Completed housing application forms, along with the required $200.00 reservation and damage deposit, should be submitted to the Director of Residential Housing. The deposit is refundable at the end of a student's residency if the student checks out in good order, cancels his/her room reservation by July 1 (Fall) or January 1 (Spring) and has no charges related to room damages or key loss. Check in and check out procedures are set forth by the Housing and Residence Life Department.
Students may express a roommate preference in housing requests when applying for admission to the University. If the preference is mutually satisfactory with the roommate requested, an effort will be made to accommodate each request.
