Staffed and Ready

LCCC’s residence halls have a full-time professional residence life director along with resident assistants. Staff Residence Hallmembers build a positive residence hall community by planning activities, directing students to the needed services, and ensuring that the rights and responsibilities of all community members are respected. Residence hall staff members are returning student leaders who genuinely want to get to know members of their floor and assist their fellow students. All residence hall staff members live on site, with a staff member available to assist residents 24 hours a day. The Residence Life Office is conveniently located in the residence hall commons and is open from 8:30 a.m. to midnight every day.

Safe and Secure

Security measures are taken to help maintain a safe residence hall environment. The residence hall exterior doors are locked at all times. Access is limited to residents and their escorted guests via an electronic access device that opens the exterior doors. Residents also have one key to access the locks on their suite entrance and bedroom doors. All suite entrance doors also have a door viewer so residents can see who is outside the door before opening it. Security staff patrol campus 24/7.

Events and Activities

A major part of campus living centers on fun activities (often called programs) that Campus Living and Learning staff plan. These activities help build our community, new friendships, respect for diversity, personal development and academic success.
