Many of our incoming LSU Law students have trouble deciding whether to live on or off campus, to live alone or with roommates, to live within walking distance or driving distance of the law center, etc. Below are some of resources we hope will help you make the decision process a little easier.
If you are interested in living off-campus visit LSU’s (main campus) online tool for its students to utilize. This site includes properties for rent and sale, as well as message boards to find roommates, buy and sell furniture, and a resource center with information on safety, links to helpful LSU departments and visitor information. The site is a user-friendly, searchable database for students that includes photographs and floor plans; maps showing the housing location’s proximity to the LSU campus; direct links to a property owner’s or manager’s e-mail, website and application for lease, as well as unlimited text descriptions and lists of amenities. Log on to https://offcampushousing.lsu.edu/ to get started.
Students may choose to live on campus in graduate housing across campus from the Law Center. LSU will do their best to assign law students to the same suites. Nicholson Gateway Apartments sits on a 28-acre site between West Chimes Street and Skip Bertman Drive and will provide undergraduate upperclassmen and graduate students, law students, and vet med students a private, independent living experience in the premier and convenient on-campus setting. Dedicated workout and parking facilities in addition to shopping and dining destinations make life easy for students new to campus and Baton Rouge, LA. Apartments come fully-furnished and in a variety of layouts, with flexible leasing options available, both academic-year leases and 12-month leases. To access more information regarding graduate housing and to see a detailed description of the other apartment options, please visit LSU’s housing website. Interested students must submit their housing application through their myLSU account.
Other housing resources, such as realty websites, are good to use when searching for homes or apartments to rent.
