Applications for 2013-2014 are expected to be available no later than March 22, 2013.
We are pleased to announce the following new themed communities for the upcoming year: Themed residence halls (PDF, 138K).
All on-campus housing is staffed by a team of professionals ready to help you adjust to life as a college student. The residence life team includes a residence hall director, resident assistants (RAs), and apartment coordinators (ACs). RAs and ACs are upper-class students who have undergone training to serve the needs of residents.
The residence life team is responsible for helping you build a community within your hall, suite or apartment while maintaining a safe, healthy environment for all residents.
The number of hall programs varies according to the needs of its residents. However, hardly a week goes by without some type of program occurring throughout student housing facilities. Examples of programs organized recently in the residence halls include fun runs, spa nights, speakers on health and wellness topics and intramurals.
Lakeland College's Department of Safety and Security maintains an environment that aids in your educational and personal growth by helping to ensure the safety, security and integrity of the campus, including the grounds, buildings and property.
The Department provides escorts across campus to any student upon request. Student staff members have been trained to handle emergency situations and behavioral problems.
The residential rooms come with jacks for cable television. If you do not have a cable-ready television, please be sure to pick up a cable converter box from an electronics store.
Wi-Fi and internet hookups are available for free in all rooms and study areas allow. The Information Technology department will provide you with the needed network information and install your network card at no charge.
A laundry room is available in all housing facilities. All students can do their laundry at no charge.
Study areas in each hall are furnished with desks, computers with Internet access and a printer for residents' use.
Students in residence halls are asked to comply with Quiet and Courtesy Hours after 10 p.m. on Sunday to Thursday and after midnight on weekends. During Quiet Hours, it is expected that room doors are closed, televisions/music can't be heard outside rooms and hallways are quiet. In addition, no men are allowed in Krueger Hall after 2 a.m. and no women are allowed in Grossheusch Hall after 2 a.m. any day of the week.
About two weeks after you decide to attend Lakeland College and pay the commitment fee, you will receive a housing application packet by mail. This application will contain your housing contract, hall preference sheet and meal plan information.
On your application, you can indicate if you have a friend you want to room with or if you want to be matched up by Lakeland's housing coordinator using the preferences listed on your roommate request form. If you are planning to room with a friend, you both need to write each other's name on the roommate request form.
The roommate matching process occurs throughout the spring and summer. In mid-July you will receive your new roommate's address, phone number and e-mail address. Lakeland recommends that you contact your roommate to discuss what you'll each bring to campus, such as televisions, stereos, refrigerators, etc.
