Residential Life

Welcome to our Residential Life family!

Attending college involves many new adventures and experiences, including living in a residential setting with other students who are just as diverse and dynamic as you!  At Louisiana Tech, we provide several different living options - from traditional residence hall to apartment-style living.  Each setting comes with unique benefits to the resident.  We hope you will take some time to visit our campus and tour our facilities.

Both inside and outside of the walls of your new home away from home, Residential Life strives to provide opportunities for social engagement by promoting involvement around campus through organizations and events!  Both our student and professional staff are friendly faces walking alongside you and cheering you on as you navigate through college life.  

Welcome to our family - the Tech family!  We look forward to having you live on campus with us as you make memories that will last a lifetime!

Applications for Incoming & Returning Residents

Residential Life began accepting housing applications from our incoming freshmen for the 2018-2019 academic year on Monday, October 16th at 9am.  Please contact our office with any questions you may have regarding the application process.  Also, you may click on the page "Application/Room Assignment Information" for details in how to use our new online housing portal to apply for housing and to search for a roommate.

Fall 2018 housing update:  Our female spaces on campus are full at this time.  However, as female students apply for housing, they are added to a list of students and will be assigned once space opens up.  We receive cancellations each week and are contacting booked residents to ensure that they are still planning to attend Louisiana Tech.  Please be patient with us as we work through assigning our female students - we are confident we will be able to house all students at this time.  Thanks!
