Lindenwood University Residential Life strives to provide quality residential communities that encourage residents’ personal growth and development.

Lindenwood University offers eight male and female residence halls, centrally located on our main campus. Each residence hall is supervised by a live-in Area Coordinator (AC). He/she oversees the general well-being and safety of the resident.  Resident students may direct questions, concerns, or ideas about residential living to an Area Coordinator, Assistant Area Coordinator or Community Advisor. 

Male Residence Halls

Female Residence Halls

Non-Traditional Housing

Students are encouraged and expected to take responsibility for themselves in their place of residence and to be responsible to the community in which they live. Active participation in residential activities aids residents in developing a sense of community spirit.

In order to live in campus housing, students must be enrolled in classes for the upcoming semester (12 hours for undergraduate students; graduate/quarter students should refer to their program requirements for full-time status). Any student falling below full-time status will be asked to leave Lindenwood housing. Failure to register for classes by the last day of the term will result in the loss of a housing assignment.

Rooms are assigned by the University to each resident student. The student’s assigned room is to be occupied as a residence by the student and for no other purpose. The University does not guarantee any student the assignment of a specific room in a specific residential building, nor does it guarantee the assignment of a specific roommate. Housing rosters are maintained as official records of the University. Assigned rooms are held for the students for 48 hours from the start of the first day of classes. Students must notify the Residential Life office at ResLife@lindenwood.edu of their late arrival. If no arrangement for late arrival has been made, the late student’s room is subject to reassignment. 

Residential Life Vision

Lindenwood University Residential Life is dedicated to the following values:
Student engagement and involvement inside and outside the residence halls
Enthusiasm from all staff
Community building among residence halls
Building relationships with staff members and residents

Visitation Pilot Program

Visitation within University residences must be managed with concern for personal safety, security, and consideration for the well being of all students. Visitation is a privilege that is granted by the University because it has faith in the students’ ability to be responsible. However, the privilege requires certain understandings, restrictions, and responsibilities. Violations of the regulations may result in immediate eviction and/or dismissal from the University and/or University housing. For the purposes of this policy, a visitor is defined as any person who does not reside in a particular residence and is 18 years of age or older.


Pilot Program Visitation Days and Hours
Visitation begins on the first day of the semester and ends on the last day of the semester.
Monday – Thursday 12:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.
Friday 12:00 p.m. through Sunday 12:00 a.m. (overnight visitation approved)


Visitors

  • Non-Lindenwood visitors under the age of 18 are not allowed.
  • ALL visitors are required to be escorted by their Lindenwood host at all times. A violation will result in disciplinary sanctions.
  • It is the responsibility of the host to ensure his or her visitors are aware of University policies and that those policies are followed.
  • Each resident is approved to have only one overnight visitor at a time during the authorized hours of visitation.
  • Visitors who are in violation of the policies will be asked to leave and the host could face disciplinary action.
  • ALL overnight visitors must be approved by their roommate(s) prior to entering the student’s Lindenwood residence. 
  • All visitors must provide either a Lindenwood Student ID card or driver’s license (if non-Lindenwood student) upon request from any University faculty/staff member.

Style Your Space Dorm Contest

Many Lindenwood University students invest considerable amounts of time planning how their dorm rooms will look. Photo collages are perfectly planned, bedding sets are coordinated, room organizers and storage totes are purchased, and everything is transported to campus and carefully arranged during the first few weeks of school.

To showcase the many creative ways in which Lindenwood students personalize their living spaces, the University sponsored a “Style Your Space” dorm decorating contest for two weeks in September 2015, during which students posted photos of their decorated rooms to the Lindenwood University Facebook page.

At the end of the contest, all entries were judged by a panel of Lindenwood University leaders and alumni, and winners were selected for first, second, and third place. A favorite male dorm entry was recognized, as was a fan favorite entry that received the most Facebook votes.

The following prizes were awarded to:

Tori Harmon, Rauch Memorial Hall
First place: $25 gift certificate to Bed Bath and Beyond and $30 gift certificate to April’s On Main

Laurel Hope Bader, Sibley Hall
Second place: $15 gift certificate to Target


Courtney Loge, Blanton Hall
Third place: $15 gift certificate to Target

Tori Manoli, Calvert Rogers Hall
Fan favorite: Lindenwood University director’s chair from the Spirit and Supplies Shoppe


 

Bobby Anderson, Parker Hall
Favorite male dorm room: Lindenwood University lion window cling

“We saw some amazing rooms and everyone did a wonderful job making their living spaces feel like homes away from home,” said Michelle Giessman, Director of Housing. “We can’t wait to see what our students come up with for next year’s contest!”
