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

Lindenwood University offers four male, five female, and six co-ed residence halls, centrally located on our main campus. Additionally we offer a variety of single family homes referred to as "Non-traditional housing". Each residence hall is supervised by a live-in Residential Community Coordinator (RCC). They oversee the general well-being and safety of the resident.  Resident students may direct questions, concerns, or ideas about residential living to an Residential Community Coordinator, Assistant Residential Community Coordinator, Residential Administrative Assistant, Community Development Ambassador.

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. 

 

Housing Maintenance

Lindenwood University is your new home, and we want to provide assistance whenever it is needed.  If you have a maintenance issue, we will help get it resolved.  All requests will be routed through Residential Community Coordinators.  If you have a maintenance emergency, you can reach maintenance in the Campus Facilities Office from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, at (636) 949-4922.  Any issues after regular office hours or on weekends should be directed to Lindenwood Office of Public Safety and Security at (636) 949-4911.  They will contact the on-call maintenance person, who will evaluate your problem.  The Office of Residential Life will also be notified, so we can track your problem and make sure it's resolved.

Heating/Air Conditioning 

All residence halls on campus offer heating and air conditioning. 

Many of the residence halls utilize heating and cooling systems that are of a "changeover" design, which allows for the system to provide for either cooling or heating depending upon the season, but not both at the same time. This design is very common in many commercial buildings. The "changeover" design is a challenge during the spring and fall seasons, as facilities management staff must manually change the operation of the building system from heating to cooling and vice versa. As this changeover process is very time-consuming, it can only be done once each season. Understand this is not just the flick of a switch like it might be in a home; there is a significant investment in time made to change each building from heating to cooling or cooling to heating. The changeover schedule is fluid as facility personnel monitor outside air temperatures and anticipated weather forecasts. 

We ask that students be patient and understand that twice a year as the seasons change we will have a few days that present a challenge to providing a comfortable environment for everyone while we work to change over from heating to cooling or vice versa.

Guest Policy

Guests must abide to all state, local and University policies. Residents are responsible for their guest(s) and their behavior. We require that students respect one another’s right to sleep, study, and be comfortable in their space. While the residents of each room determine the hours and terms upon which they will entertain guests, Overnight guests may not stay for a period longer than three consecutive days without specific permission from the Director of Residential Life and a maximum of 10 nights (total) for the semester, with approval from all roommates. Guests under the age of 18 are not permitted within the residence without specific permission from the Director of Residential Life.

Residential Life reserves the right to restrict students’ guest privileges at its discretion should individual issues emerge.

Residents are responsible for both their non-Lindenwood guest(s) and their commuter guest(s) regardless of the amount of time the guest is visiting. This means that the resident must inform their guest of all Residential Life and Lindenwood University policies and if the guest does not abide by them the resident may be held responsible for the guest’s actions. The guest may not be left unaccompanied; the host must be present at all times. In addition, if a guest violates policy, they may be banned from campus residential spaces and/or Lindenwood University. Commuters found in violation/present during university policies being broken will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct
