Your room selection time slot is this week!


Sent on Monday of each room selection week to incoming first-year students selecting rooms that week. 

Your room selection time slot is this week!

Log in to the housing portal in myLSU (myLSU > Student Services > On-Campus Housing) to view your exact time slot. When it’s your time, the Room Selection option will appear as the next step in the top menu bar for you to select your residence hall and room with the option to invite accepted roommates in to your room or suite.


Here’s what you should do to prepare for room selection:

  • Review the Room & Roommate Selection Guide before you log in for step-by-step instructions on selecting your building and room, roommate information, room changes, and waitlist details.
  • Review building floor plans and room measurements.
  • You’ll only be able to pull in roommates/suitemates from your “Accepted Roommates” list in the online housing portal who haven’t selected a room already. Only once you and your roommate/suitemates are confirmed in the room/suite are you officially roommates/suitemates. 
  • Once you confirm a room you cannot change rooms yourself in the housing portal. Contact us at to facilitate a room change. 
  • More students gain access every day, so select your room as soon as you can for the most options. You will continue to have access through the end of July.A

  • If you don’t get your first choice residence hall or room style, mark the calendar for June 24, 2019. Starting that day, you can add yourself to res hall and room style waitlists. If your preferred room becomes available, our team will contact you about changing room assignments to that room.

  • Talk to us! On room selection days, staff will be available until 6 p.m., and any calls or emails not responded to each day will be returned during the next business day.
  • Bookmark for the latest information about room selection.

  • Residence hall Move-in Day is Saturday, August 17, 2019. We’ll add details to to help you get ready to make campus #myLSUhome
    As a reminder, all first-year students are required to live on campus in compliance with the university’s first-year housing expectation. All incoming first-year students must submit a housing contract or a request for an exemption.

  • Only cancel your housing contract if you no longer need on-campus housing. Do NOT cancel your housing contract just to make a room or building change. 

We excited to see what you select as your new LSU home!
