Housing & Residential Life

Housing & Residential Life

All apartment leases are for a full academic year unless the spring semester is the first semester of arrival. Applications are to be fully completed and must include the payment of a Room Reservation Fee. Reservation Fee and Application must be received by Langston University in order to reserve a housing location. If a student leaves the University prior to the end of his/her lease, the student is responsible for all housing charges for the duration of the lease if the residence can not be re-let during this period. If a new tenant can be placed, the student is charged a lease termination fee of $300. In addition, a $10 per semester telecommunication fee will be assessed. The housing contract should be read immediately once received. In the Langston Commons Apartments, both residents whether married or unmarried parents, must be enrolled in order to live in the facility. Pets are not allowed in any of the apartments with the exception of individual cottages. All housing rates and related fees are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Regents.

Residential Life

The objective of Residential Life is to provide quality programs, services, and facilities that promote student success, student learning, and social responsibility. We created a unique experience called the Living Learning Community (LLC). The Living Learning Community is a group of students with shared interests, living in residential facility reserved exclusively for them and taking at least one of their classes together. Based on disciplinary and interdisciplinary themes, LLC creates intentional links between academic, social, and residential experiences. Benefits include:

  • Living with students who share similar interests, passions and challenges
  • Convenient, natural study groups
  • Special on campus programming
  • Unique field trips off campus
  • Targeted academic enrichment
  • Networking opportunities with faculty, staff and alumni, community leaders
  • A dedicated LLC and residential tutor
  • Learning Community specific events

Research indicates that students residing in a LLC are more successful academically, feel more connected to the University, foster long-standing relationships with peers, and are retained at higher rates. All majors are welcome.
