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!

Application Update

**Due to the demand for on campus housing, the Department of Residential Life is no longer accepting applications from returning or transfer students for Fall 2016.  Any returning or transfer student who submits an application will be refunded. Our office will continue to accept applications from incoming freshmen.  However, if you apply at this time, we cannot guarantee on campus housing accommodations for Fall 2016.  We are committed to helping as many students as possible as quickly as possible! Please contact our office should you have any questions regarding the application process.  Assignments are made based on a first come first served basis as space permits.**
