Living On Campus

Students have the opportunity to live on campus during all four years at Lock Haven University.  This is great news because national studies show students who live on campus have:

  • Better academic success
  • Higher GPAs & degree completion rates
  • Are more satisfied with their academic experience

In fact, our statistics show that students who live in our on-campus housing have a 13% higher graduation rate than students who do not live on campus. Learn about our two-year Residency Requirement by visiting our Sign Up For Housing webpage.

Types of Housing

More than 1700 students can live on campus in our traditional residence halls, suite style hall, and apartment complexes. Costs and living configurations vary depending on how many roommates you have and what type of space you choose.


Offering the best opportunity for new students to make friends and be involved in the community on campus, these are where most students live. Typically, two roommates share a room, with a common bathroom located on each floor.


Offering a little more privacy, these are available to all students. Each suite has shared a bathroom and either a shared bedroom or 2 private bedrooms. 


Offering apartment style living space, these are typically chosen by returning students. A variety of layouts are available providing bedrooms, bathrooms, closets, a kitchen, and a living room.


The Office of Housing & Residence Life offers several specialty housing options for students:
