Living on Campus

Campus Life -  Living on Campus

More than 90 percent of students live on campus, and most stick around on the weekends to enjoy a wide range of cultural, social, and athletic activities. Housing is guaranteed for all four years at Lafayette. Options include traditional residence halls (which have singles, doubles, and suites), town homes, and sorority and fraternity houses.

There also are special living options for students who share a common interest, such as the arts, a foreign culture and language, the environment, and wellness. The McKelvy House Scholars and Grossman House programs provide residential experiences centered on intellectual inquiry, discourse, and exploration.
