Residence life offers more to your university experience than providing a roof over your head and a place to study. Your living area will soon become your family. The group of students you live with, study with, compete with, and pray with become committed to you as brothers or sisters. This family attitude is more than just personal - it is spiritual. You become bound by the unity found in Christ. As a result, you will develop a sense of belonging, love, and worthiness.
Yet, the residence hall is not just a cozy place to which you can retreat at the end of the day. The attitude of community found here at LeTourneau challenges you to be a servant leader, responsible for the direction and development of the residence hall. You will use your spiritual gifts and natural abilities to help others grow spiritually, mentally, socially, and physically. The result is not only mature individuals, but also individuals who learn how to live well within community.
The residence life staff is available to facilitate the development of this community atmosphere. They will encourage and supervise you in your efforts to build relationships and skills that will last a lifetime.
General Housing Information
When you have been accepted by the Admissions Office and have paid your tuition advance deposit, have paid your housing fee, and have completed your housing application, you will be eligible for a room in one of the residence halls. All freshmen and other new students will be assigned to rooms according to the availability of their stated preference of residence hall, and roommates are artfully and prayerfully selected by our residence life staff based on the housing application.
All rooms have central air and heat, with laundry facilities available nearby. Residence halls have lounges and storage areas for your use. Most rooms are designed to house two students. Each is furnished with beds, dressers, study desks, chairs, and closet space. You furnish everything else - including your personal touch.
Female students are housed in Gilbert Hall, Evelyn LeTourneau Hall, Davis Hall, South Hall, Carpenter House, Howe House, and in the apartments. Male students reside in Tyler Hall East and West, Mabee Hall, Pennsylvania Hall, McKinley House, Durham House, Thomas Hall, Davis Hall, South Hall, and in the apartments.
Meals are provided for resident students in the Corner Café. A nationally-known catering company serves 19 meals per week in this facility except during semester breaks and vacation periods such as spring break. It stays open, however, over Thanksgiving weekend for your convenience.
Three local residence hall societies on campus have been established by students and chartered by LeTourneau University for the spiritual and social development of each member. Alpha Omega, Lambda Alpha Sigma, and Kappa Zeta Chi have traditionally provided a deep-rooted faith commitment, spirited competition and strong personal bonds for 50 years.
LeTourneau University provides on-campus housing for married students. As a married student, if you need housing for your family on-campus, the Student Affairs Office is equipped to serve you.
