FAQ for Parents

Parents have just as many questions about on-campus housing as students do (sometimes even more!) Take a look through this section when considering on-campus housing.

How much does it cost to live in the Residence Hall for one academic year?
The price to live in the residence hall includes room, meal plan, utilities, cable television, high-speed Internet access, and free laundry. Click here for rates and more information.
 
How does the meal plan work?
Meal plans are included in the cost of the Residence Hall and are not optional. Residents are issued a student ID card, on which the meal card is loaded each semester. Residents will be given a certain number of "all you can eat" meals per week plus a number of "flex" dollars that can be spent on grab and go items. Click here for rates and more information.
 
Can anyone get my son or daughter's suite number or telephone number?
No. Resident information remains confidential. Only LCCC officials receive this information for LCCC-related purposes. A person calling the Residence Life Office to speak with a resident must provide both a first and last name. The phone number is not given out. Likewise, suite numbers are not given out. Remember, this goes for parents, too. While this may seem like an inconvenience if you don't know their contact information, please keep in mind that it is to help ensure the safety of all residents.

 
Can I visit a resident?
Of course! Guests are welcomed in the Residence Hall, provided they are escorted by a resident at all times.

What is "open housing"?
Open housing refers to a housing option in which two or more students mutually agree to share a multiple-occupancy bedroom or suite without regard to the gender expression of the individuals living in the room or suite. Open housing provides options for a variety of students: those who feel uncomfortable rooming with members of the same sex, transgender students in the process of discovering their gender identity, students who feel they would be more compatible with a roommate of a different sex or gender, married couples, and students who do not want sex or gender be a primary factor in choosing a roommate. Please note: Students will only be allowed to live in an open-housing environment if they select this option, otherwise students will be placed in a room with a student of the same sex.
