Rent Rates

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

  • Rates listed are per student, per semester, and are subject to change. Rent rates do not include LSU Dining meal plans which are required for first--year students living on campus. 
  • All utilities (electricity, water, sewage, trash), Internet service and basic cable TV are included.
  • 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. 
  • Rent is paid by the semester on the fee bill. Payment options are available with the Bursar’s Office.
  • Each student is provided a mailbox located in the UPS Store in the Student Union. When the rent charge listed below is loaded on the fee bill an additional $35 per semester for the mailbox fee will be added to it.
