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.
University housing is available for single students. We encourage students to live on campus to better integrate into university life and to gain more experience using English skills. You may get an application from the Office of International Affairs. Once you arrive on campus, you need to go to the Housing Office to get your room assignment. Most rooms on campus are double rooms. There are a few private rooms, but students must pay more money to get a private room. All students who live on campus must participate in the meal plan. There are several options in selecting meal plans. You can call LA Tech Housing at 318-257-4917 or visit the website at http://www.latech.edu/students/residential-life/
It is mandatory for all undergraduates unless you are over 23 or have at least 80 credit hours to stay on campus. If you send in your housing form along with the application, your dorm room should be ready by the time you arrive in Ruston. For those looking for off-campus housing, we will be happy to provide you with a list of phone numbers of apartment management agencies. The earlier you arrive in Ruston the easier it will be to find an apartment.
If you choose to live off-campus, it is your responsibility to find housing. The ISO staff will not be able to help you find an apartment.
Whether we host you or you visit on your own, we offer several ways for you to visit our campus. You can learn what it's like to be a student, meet with our faculty and advisors, and become familiar with campus facilities and student life.
