Rent Rates

When you compare apples to apples, life on campus is simply the best value. Students who live on campus enjoy the true LSU experience in safe, comfortable, convenient, and affordable student-focused housing.

Living on campus not only provides incredible academic benefits (increased GPA, retention and graduation rates), but it also offers an immediate opportunity for you to make new friends and build a community, which eases the transition between high school and college.

  • Rates listed are per student, per semester, and are subject to change. Rent rates do not include LSU Dining meal plans
  • All utilities (electricity, water, sewage, trash), Internet service and basic cable TV are included. Edward Gay Apartments also include local phone service.
  • Price differences are due to building age, room style, apartment style, bath style, and academic programs associated with the building.
  • Residents are required to sign an academic-year contract that includes both fall and spring semesters.
  • When space allows, two-student rooms may be rented as private rooms at 1.5x the listed rate.
  • Rent is paid by the semester on the fee bill. Payment options are available with the Bursar’s Office.
