We've Changed!

Over the summer the Campus Life Office has been reorganized into the Office of Residential Education and Housing and the Office of Student Activities. Both offices are located on the 4th floor of the Warch Campus Center.
If you are seeking information about housing assignments, residence halls or group living, residence hall staff, and residential programming, stop by the Residential Education and Housing Office or email residential.education@lawrence.edu.
If you are seeking information about student organizations and student activities, visit the
Office of Student Activities or email student.activities@lawrence.edu.


Please note: The Residential Education and Housing Office will be closed beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 20, 2019, until 8 a.m. on Thursday, January 2, 2020.  

To request an early arrival for housing, please go to Voyager and click on “Student Services” and then “Request for Housing.” You’ll provide your reason for arriving early, the dates you’ll be on campus, and details about why you’ll need to stay.

Late stay requests for Fall Term must be submitted no later than Monday, November 25.
Early arrival requests for Winter Term must be submitted no later than, Wednesday, December 18.

Winter athletes, December Opera Intensive, faculty-approved research students, and D-Term registered students should not submit a request through Voyager unless you are planning to stay additional dates outside of the dates of your program. If you are a student employed on campus over break, your campus employer must submit your request in Voyager to confirm your employment.

To view the status of your housing request, you can view it through your Voyager account.

Costs for winter break housing are as follows:

  • $260 for the first two weeks on campus ($130/week)*
  • $52/week for any additional weeks on campus
  • $415 entire break
  • $25/day for late stays/early arrivals of just a few days

*Students are charged $130 per week for the first two weeks they stay on campus, which can occur at any point during winter break. After a student has paid the $260 for the first two weeks, the student will pay a reduced rate of $52 per week for any additional weeks they may remain on campus.

Included on the following pages is information about living on campus at Lawrence University. Because we are a residential campus, we feel that the experience that you receive in our residence spaces must be meaningful, engaging, and unique. That is why we offer a wide variety of living options and an excellent staff to carry out our program.

At Lawrence, we believe that residential living is the first step in making a life transition. We recognize the importance of allowing our students to be an active participant in their community and because of that, we offer them a variety of opportunities to make decisions regarding their living environment. Each living environment reflects the interests of the students who live there. We encourage students to become a member of a close-knit community and most importantly, to be challenged to experience and learn from others who are different from themselves.

This website is being developed to provide you with an understanding of living at Lawrence. We hope that you find this information helpful and we encourage you to contact our staff for assistance or to answer any questions you may have regarding housing at Lawrence University.
