If you are a non-LU student looking for information about housing for summer, please refer to the bottom of this page.


LU Students - Summer Housing information can be found below:


Double Room Selection has concluded (Tuesday, May 21 9-10:30pm)
and assignments will be sent to all summer residents by Wednesday, May 29.


As a reminder, all students approved as summer housing residents do not need to check out of housing at the end of the year. All summer residents will remain in their current housing assignment until their assigned summer move-in date occurring June 7-11, 2019.

On-campus housing is offered to 2019-2020 continuing students who are employed at least 10 hours per week by Lawrence University, are doing paid summer research, or have an approved summer internship coordinated through Career Services. Summer housing is not open to graduating seniors. Failure to maintain 10 hours per week may result in eviction from housing. Housing will be assigned based on current and fall housing assignments in combination with seniority of lottery number for rooms in Colman Hall.
