Student Overnight Accommodations

During the June New Student Orientation sessions, students are invited to stay in a residence hall on-campus.  This gives students an opportunity to sample what it will be like to live on campus.  Students can indicate their preference to stay on campus when they register for Orientation.  There is no additional charge to stay on-campus during Orientation. Students staying on campus will not be provided with bed linens.  However, if students would like linens to be provided to them; they can request them by click here, (bed linens including sheets and a pillowcase, pillow, and towel).  Orientation Leaders, known as "Krewe Leaders" will stay in the residence hall and be a resource for students during their stay.  The front desk of the residence hall will be monitored by Residential Life staff. 

Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate early or extended stays due to early arrival or late departure.
