Applications for residence hall living should be made with the Office of Student Housing and Residence Life located at the corner of Beauregard Drive and Jeff Davis Drive. The advantages of living on campus include economic feasibility, security, close proximity to University facilities and dining services, and opportunities for participation in campus events and activities, recreational sports, and student organizations. Residence halls are managed by the Ambling Corporation, a private property management firm with whom residents are required to enter into formal, binding lease agreements. Alcohol, illegal drugs, weapons and pets are prohibited at all times in all University housing facilities. Students residing in residence halls, suites, and garden apartments are required to purchase a meal plan each academic term in which they reside on campus (fall, spring, summer). Meal plans are required regardless of whether or not the resident student is enrolled in classes and without respect to the number of credit hours in which the resident student is enrolled.
Housing Lease Renewals
Campus housing is offered on a first-come, first-served basis and space is limited. Prospective new residents of campus housing are urged to contact the Office of Student Housing and Residence Life immediately upon deciding to reside on campus in order to tour residence halls, discuss housing and dining rates and terms, and complete appropriate documents needed in order to apply for housing. Residence hall and apartment lease renewals are not automatic; residents who intend to continue residing on campus following fulfillment of their current lease agreement must notify the Office of Student Housing and Residence Life of their intent to renew and then sign a written lease renewal in order to confirm a room is reserved for them. New residents who fail to apply for housing early and returning residents who fail to renew their leases early may be placed on waiting lists for future openings in campus housing.Visit McNeese Housing in Lake Charles for more information.
