As a New Student…
Lyndon finds it very important for you to live on campus to provide a sense of community, access to clubs and organizations, activities as well as a chance to really connect with Lyndon and your peers. Lyndon assigns roommates without regard to race, creed, religion, sexual orientation or Country of national origin.
Living on campus provides new students with a sense of community. It provides ready access to student life activities, as well as to academic facilities and support.
The general guidelines for housing at Lyndon are as follows:
- Unmarried students under the age of 24 who are accepted to Lyndon as new students are required to live on campus for two consecutive academic years.
- Those accepted as sophomores are required to live on campus for one academic year.
- Students whose permanent legal domiciles are within a reasonable daily commuting distance are exempted from living on campus.
- In extraordinary circumstances, application by letter may be made to the Dean of Student Affairs or designee to waive this residency requirement.
- Housing deposits received by May 1 will be guaranteed on-campus housing. Deposits received after May 1 are placed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Life in the Residence Halls
While living on campus can be a fun and rewarding, it also has its challenges. That’s why we make support available to our students.
The residence hall staff is ready to answer questions, discuss personal concerns, and assist in making residential life as comfortable and safe as possible.
Each set of residence halls has a live-in Residence Hall Director (RHD) and a staff of Resident Assistants (RA’s). RHD’s are professional staff members who hold undergraduate degrees and who have participated in a comprehensive training program.
Features of Residence Halls
All residence hall rooms are supplied with the following for each roommate:
- A twin bed
- Chest of drawers or wardrobe combination
Each room also contains:
- One cable TV jack
- One telephone jack and
- At least two internet jacks
Each individual residence hall has its own character and attributes. All of our residence halls are designated non-smoking areas.
There are six residence halls located in the Stonehenge complex, Wheelock Hall is a freshman residence hall located in the center of campus, the Rita Bole complex offers apartment-style housing for upper class students, and the Gray House affords a small number of upper-class students an experience similar to living in a house.
