Living on Campus

College can be tough, but Residence Life is here to help. When you live on campus, you’ll find that Resident Assistants -- college students (just like you!) -- are ready and willing to help you with everything from finding and utilizing campus resources to figuring out how best to arrange your room. RAs are there to share your successes (like when you hit a new personal best in something you love to do) and in your struggles (like when you and your roommate disagree or when you are feeling homesick).

RAs will also help you to create fantastic floor and building communities with other residents, creating spaces in which residents can communicate with one another and have fun. You’ll find these communities in one of our four residence halls or two apartment complexes. In total, we house over 560 students!

Residence Life at Lake Erie College is committed to maintaining residence hall environments that are conducive to learning and that promote individual and group enrichment. With this comes personal and community responsibility for one another’s actions, so please make sure that you familiarize yourself with our Student Code of Conduct, which can be found in every Student Handbook. Our staff is also committed to doing our part to keep our residents safe, our communities respectful, and our students engaged.

As a resident on Lake Erie College’s campuses, you are expected to:

  • attend and participate in residential meetings (so you know what is going on and what is expected of you);
  • support activities (We want you to have fun!);
  • show respect for the rights of other residents and staff members (Our communities are based on trust and respect.;
  • care for your own room/apartment and personal property as well as for the property of the College and others;
  • adhere to the Student Code of Conduct.

If you ever have any questions about how to be successful while living on campus, talk with your Resident Assistant or your Resident Director or stop by the Student Life Office. We’re here to help!
