The Student Housing Office encourages parents and families to share in the process of exploring our on-campus housing so that they can assist their student with selecting an option that best suits their needs. We welcome you to browse through our housing options to familiarize yourself with all of the buildings. Each building has its own amenities and charm and all have very appealing living spaces.

LMU's campus is home to facilities and resources that offer everything students need to excel academically and personally. Our housing community fosters education of the whole person and supports positive development on all levels. All residence halls, suites, and apartments are home to Residence Life staff who are here to provide your student with the best possible residential and learning experience. We take pride in making students feel at home as part of our celebrated community.

We look forward to welcoming your student to on-campus housing. For additional information and other helpful resources, please take time to visit the links below.

What is FERPA?

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, sets forth requirements regarding the privacy of student records. FERPA governs the limited release of these records (known as education records) maintained by an educational institution and access to these records.

FERPA regulations state that while a student is in high school, parents have the right to access the student’s education record. Once a student enrolls at a post-secondary institution, those rights transfer to the student. A student’s education record at LMU includes but is not limited to, housing assignments, housing release requests, billing information, and meal plan information.
