We believe it is necessary for students to be immersed in community living for key life-to-life encounters to be possible. In community, students give and receive, are shaped by and contribute to campus life, and are challenged to integrate their classroom learning with their life experiences. Therefore, as a condition of attending LeTourneau University, non-married undergraduate students (with few exceptions, listed below) are required to live on-campus in college-owned residence halls, apartments or houses.
Conversely, students enrolled in six or fewer credit hours desiring to live in campus housing need special permission from the Associate Dean of Student Life. Contact ResidenceLife@letu.edu for more information.
All rooms have central air conditioning and heat, with laundry facilities available nearby. Residence halls have lounges for study and social activity along with storage rooms which have limited space for personal belongings. Most rooms are designed to house two students and are furnished with beds, dressers, desks, chairs, bookcases and closet space. For more information, including diagrams, dimensions, and descriptions, visit www.letu.edu/reslife.

LeTourneau University offers two types of University-operated apartments: "Family and Married Student Housing" and upper-division student housing in the "Village Apartments." Both sets of apartments are in high demand, and interested students are encouraged to apply early.
Family and Married Student Housing apartments are available for LeTourneau's married students and/or students with children. These apartments are available for both graduate and undergraduate students. Apartments are determined on a first-come, first-served basis, so early applications are critical for this area. Based on current applications, we suggest applying at least 6 months prior to your desired move-in date. The 850-square-foot unfurnished apartments offer a kitchen, dining room, living room, two bedrooms, one bathroom, and an attic for storage space. The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator and an oven/range. A phone jack, cable TV jack (and service), and network connections are also provided in each apartment. Laundry facilities, a playground, and lounge are located in the Village Center, a community facility adjacent to the apartments. Applications for Married Student Apartments may be picked up at the Division of Student Life or by visiting www.letu.edu/reslifeforms. More information for Family and Married Student Housing can be found at www.letu.edu/ResHalls.
Our upper-division Village Apartments are designated as a transitional living area and are available to our qualified, non-married, undergraduate students. One of the greatest advantages of these apartments is the quiet and mature environment they provide. As upper-division students who have demonstrated self-discipline and academic success, more privileges and freedoms are provided to our apartment residents. With that in mind, we expect apartment residents to act with the highest degree of common courtesy and respect for others in maintaining a particularly mature environment. Applications are distributed to those students who qualify each February and may also be obtained online at www.letu.edu/reslifeforms.

Residential areas Alpha Omega (AO), Kappa Zeta Chi (KZX), and Lambda Alpha Sigma (LAS) are chartered as society organizations located on the LeTourneau University campus. Societies operate under an elected group of officers with the president serving as a member of the Residence Life staff. A Resident Director is designated to serve the societies, and the faculty sponsor(s) for each society works alongside the Residence Life Staff to provide mentoring, discipleship, and direction for the societies.
Limited summer housing is available each year, primarily for students taking LETU courses on-campus. As space allows, those taking online courses or working in the community may also reside in summer campus housing. Applications are available in the Division of Student Life after Spring Break in March or online at www.letu.edu/reslifeforms. Students are not required to reside on campus during the summer sessions.
