The Residential Life Experience

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!

Application Update

Applications for Fall 2016 will be available beginning October 15th at 9am.  Please contact our office should you have any questions regarding the application process.

The number of applications for undergraduate on-campus housing has exceeded Residential Life's housing capacity at this time.  If you are applying for Fall 2015 as an incoming freshman, we cannot guarantee that you will be assigned a place on campus.  However, your name will be added to a waiting list and assigned according to your placement on the list, as space becomes available throughout the summer.  We are not currently accepting applications from transfer, graduate or returning students.  Please contact our office should you have any questions regarding the application process.
