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

Students under the age of 22 whose official residence is outside of a 25-mile radius of the College are required to reside on campus during the academic year. Any student whose established residence is within a 50-mile radius of the College or any student reaching the age of 23 years by August 15 prior to the start of the fall semester qualifies for commuter status. Students 23 years of age and older can be granted residency status on a space-available basis after all students whose on-campus residence is required have been accommodated.

Exceptions to the residency requirement will be made for students who have the required number of credit hours to be considered a junior or senior, married students, and students who live with a close adult relative.

A student who wishes to petition for an exemption must complete an Off-Campus Intent Form and submit it to the Director of Residence Life. The request will be verified and the student will be notified when it has been approved. The College may request any legal or formal documentation it deems necessary to substantiate the exemption.

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.

Students may only reside in the residential buildings 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 charged $25 per night during break periods.
