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!

Reservation Information and Schedule for Returning Students

Residents are required to make a $100 non-refundable room reservation fee to secure a reservation.  It may be paid by check, money order, or credit card at Wyly Tower 227 during our office hours 8am-5pm Monday - Friday.  All residents planning to reside on campus for Summer and/or Fall 2016 must make a reservation March 21-April 8 to solidify your current apartment/room or to be able to choose a different apartment/room for the upcoming school year, regardless of scholarship or financial aid.  Any student who does not make a reservation payment before April 8th will be required to wait until May 9-20th to make a payment and reserve a space, as available at that time.  Students who do not make a reservation by 5pm on May 20, 2016 must reapply for on campus housing, which is a $150 non-refundable application fee.  The reservation schedule is as follows:

March 21-April 8:  Residents returning for Summer/Fall 2016 must make a reservation.  This time is to reserve your current room, provided the space is available.  

March 21-25:  Last name A-I
March 29-April 1:  Last name J-R
April 4-8:   Last name S-Z

Residents are not guaranteed their same room.  If your current apartment or residence hall is unavailable you must pay the reservation fee this week, but please refer to the next two weeks for an assignment.

April 11-15:  Apartment residents can choose a different apartment if their current room is unavailable.  Any resident currently living in Sutton and Hutcheson who will not be signing a 12 month lease can also choose a different room this week. ***

April 18-22:  Residents can choose a different residence hall room if their current room is unavailable.  Any resident who lives in Graham, or Pearce 3rd floor, who are unable to reserve their same room can also choose a different room this week. ***

April 25-29:  Residents are allowed to sign a 12 month lease ONLY for University Park and Park Place.  Only Sutton and Hutcheson will be an option.  If you wish to room with a  specific roommate, they must also choose the same lease.
