The residence hall is a community in which students are the main ingredient. We believe a residence hall is more than a place to relax between classes. Ideally, it is a vibrant and active community, the center of student life. The residence life staff encourages you to develop an awareness of the many opportunities that this special living arrangement presents daily, and challenges you to utilize this setting to increase strength in citizenship and leadership. To make a community function, it is very important to ensure that the rights of individuals are respected. We urge each resident to act responsibly toward the rest of the community as well as to himself or herself. It is important that each person’s actions contribute to the development of a strong, balanced community within the residence halls.
One meaningful part of a University education is the learning that comes from living with others. A good deal of adjustment occurs in the transition from high school to University and from home life to residence hall life, and sometimes even from freshman to sophomore year. LMU’s Residence Life Program is designed to help you make personal, social and academic adjustments in as healthy a way as possible, and to make your living experience both educational and enjoyable. You will meet individuals who will become lifelong friends, given the opportunity to expand your sense of community service and you will improve your leadership skills. You can do that here at LMU!
