Making LSU Home

After you submit your enrollment deposit and activate your myLSU account, complete your housing application and agreement or request an exemption to the live-on requirement in the housing portal.

The date you submit the housing agreement determines your priority for room assignment/selection.

The priority housing agreement completion date is May 3, 2024. The assignments team will make room assignments for students who submit a housing agreement May 4, 2024, and later.

 

Once you've made LSU your choice, submit your non-refundable required enrollment deposit in your LSU Admissions Portal to save your spot in the incoming class.

MyLSU is a personalized online resource center for all deposited LSU students.

Within 48 hours after activating your myLSU account, you will be able to access the housing portal to submit your housing application and agreement and view other myLSU features.

  1. Visit my.lsu.edu
  2. Enter your myLSU username in the “myLSU account or Email Address” space. (Your myLSU username can be found in your LSU Admissions Portal ex: mtiger1).
  3. Click “Forgot Password”
  4. Complete steps to create a password

Anytime you login to myLSU, you must use your myLSU username. Do not use a personal email address to login to myLSU. The system will not recognize your personal email address.

Until you can log in to the housing portal in myLSU, research where you'd like to live on campus. 

You won't enter an exact building name on the housing application, like Miller Hall or Azalea Hall, but you will tell us if you prefer to live in a traditional housing option or have a living-learning experience in a residential college.

If you change you mind later, email housing@lsu.edu to update your application. 

The housing portal opens on December 4, 2023, at 10 a.m. CST for 2024-25 applications and exemption requests.

The date you submit the housing agreement determines your priority for room assignment/selection.

  • The housing portal will be closed for admitted students March 4-8, 2024,and reopen March 11, 2024, at 10 a.m.  

Use your myLSU log in credentials to access the housing portal. It can take up to 48 hours after first accessing myLSU for you to gain access to the housing portal. 

Once you have access to the housing portal, you must complete one of these two processes to enroll at LSU:

  1. Submit the housing application and academic-year housing agreement, and submit the $75 non-refundable fee, or
  2. Submit an exemption request to the first-year student live-on requirement. Requests must be approved.

Review the full details of the academic-year agreement and cancellation penalties before you complete this step! 

The priority housing agreement completion date is May 3, 2023.

The assignments team will make room assignments for students who submit a housing agreement May 4, 2024, and later. View room and roommate assignments on the housing portal's "My Details" tab on June 28, 2024. The team will accommodate roommate preferences as space allows.  

Roommate matching opens at 10 a.m. CST on March 25, 2024, for fall 2024, and remains open through mid-June for you to create a roommate group of people you prefer to live with. Learn more about roommate groups below. 

  • Students living in residential colleges should have their preferred roommate group complete by May 12, 2024.

Roommate Finder in the Housing Portal  
Sometimes called “online dating for roommates,” the Roommate Finder service compares students’ profile answers and suggests compatible roommates with the same housing preference (residential college or traditional housing).   

  • Roommate Finder has no impact on housing priority. Housing room assignment priority is always based on when you submit your housing application and agreement.  
  • You can view students’ profiles, look for personal contact info and social media handles in their bio, or message roommates through the housing portal.  
  • Participation is optional. Many students opt for a random roommate, which is fine!  
  • If you already know your preferred roommates, you can search by their myLSU username.
  • Answer the questions on the “My Profile” page in the housing application to help you find compatible roommates.  
  • Be honest in your answers and be open to meeting new people.
  • Students should complete the questionnaire, not their parents.  

 

Who You See 
Students must have an active housing application to participate in Roommate Finder. Potential roommate options will increase as more students are admitted and commit to LSU.  
 
Your preferred roommates must have the same housing preference as you.

  • For example, students in the Engineering Residential College can only request other students who are also in the Engineering Residential College. If you indicated a preference to live in traditional housing options, you’ll only be able to search for and invite roommates who are also interested in traditional housing options.  

If you request to change your housing preference, the potential roommates you see may change. 
 
 
Preferred Roommate Group 
Your group can have up to four (4) members. These are the people you want to have as roommate(s) or suitemate(s).  

Being in a preferred roommate group does not guarantee you'll be together but just indicates who you'd prefer to live with.

You can only be in one preferred roommate group at a time.

Group Leader: Change the group order, change who the group leader is, send messages, and view member profiles. If you decide to leave the group, you must make someone else the new group leader. 

Group Member: You can view member profiles, send messages, or leave the group.   

Join Group: Search for an existing roommate group.  
 
Search for Roommates by myLSU ID: If you know a friend’s myLSU ID (username), search to quickly find them. 
 
Suggested Roommates: These results are based on the answers you provided on your profile page. 
 
Preferred Roommate Groups in Traditional Housing vs. Residential Colleges

Traditional Housing Options  
One member is designated as the group leader. This person is responsible for choosing a space on campus and placing everyone from the preferred roommate group into the open beds of that space during self-room selection.  
 
Students living in traditional housing options should complete their preferred roommate group by May 26, 2024. 
 
Once you get your room selection time slot, make sure to adjust the group leader to whoever has the earliest time slot to choose your room earlier.  
 
During room selection, the group leader can only place people from their preferred roommate group into available beds.   
 
If the group leader doesn’t place all members into available bed spaces, each student can log in at their assigned time slot and choose a bed space, regardless of if/where their group members have gone.  

Residential Colleges   
For residential college students, preferred roommate groups will be used to place you in your residential college building with preferred roommates and suitemates by our Assignments Team. 
 
Rank your preferred roommate as the first roommate and preferred suitemates as the third and fourth roommates in the group. This helps our team get the right people in the right rooms.  
 
Students in residential colleges should complete their preferred roommate group by May 12, 2024.
