Housing Options

When you live on campus, you have the opportunity to live in a community with other college students where you can learn from them and make life-long friends. Lake Erie's residential community consists of four residence halls and five residential apartments within walking distance of the College, housing over 560 students.

Residency Restrictions

All full-time students are required to live in campus housing during the academic year {on campus residence halls or residential apartments}.   Resident students sign and submit a Housing and Food Accommodations Contract for one academic year, both Fall and Spring semesters, unless the student cancels the contract through the Student Life Office and it is approved.  Housing and Food Accommodations Contracts cannot be cancelled unless students meet the residency requirements as listed or are no longer attending Lake Erie College.  A cancellations fee of $100 may apply. 

All residential students must be currently registered full-time at Lake Erie College. All financial obligations to the College must be taken care of prior to move in.  Students with an unpaid balance will not be permitted to receive a room key or move in prior to the fall and spring semesters.  In addition, students must have all medical forms completed and submitted prior to move in. 

Students wishing to live off campus or commute are required to fill out a Residency Exemption Form and turn it in to the Student Life Office for approval.  For more information, please see the "Off Campus Housing" page.  

Without exception, all students residing on campus are required to be enrolled in one of the College board (meal) plans.  Student accounts will be charged accordingly.  Failure to choose a meal plan will result in the default 19 meals per week. 

Students may only reside in the residence halls when the College is in session.  Students are provided with the College calendar as well as the dates they are permitted to move in and the dates they are required to move out of the residence halls.  Travel arrangements must be made accordingly. The campus dining facility is closed during break periods. Students can complete an application to stay on campus during break periods. Applications will be approved based on necessity; those approved will be charge $25 per night during break periods.
