On-campus residency is part of the academic mission of the College. Membership in a residential, academic community provides unique opportunities for enhanced learning and personal growth outside the classroom. Our campus is not just a place where you take classes and exams, it is your home for four wonderful years and a place to which you’ll feel an indelible bond for the rest of your life. Extra- and co-curricular life opportunities are a big part of why our students develop such a strong sense of connection to Lafayette. On-campus housing is guaranteed for all students. There are living environments to accommodate a variety of interests and needs.
