Each spring, currently enrolled and continuing students will follow the steps below to select their housing for the next academic year. The steps were developed and approved by members of the Residence Life Committee of the Lawrence University Community Council (LUCC). If you have any questions regarding any part of the housing process, or are interested in becoming a part of our committee, please feel free to contact the chair of the Residence Life Committee, Owen Davies.

Note: Incoming new students (first-years and transfers) for the upcoming academic year do not follow this process but will be notified of their housing assignment via their Voyager account in late July. For additional information for new students, please click here!

Those unavailable to select their own housing may designate a proxy by completing a proxy form (PDF) (also available at the Residential Education and Housing Office, 4th floor-Warch Campus Center).
