Living in one of our residence halls or a residential learning community means you get to be in the heart of all the action. La Salle’s residences are located throughout campus and include 12 residence halls, two apartment complexes, and a townhouse complex. Students can live in townhouses, singles, doubles, and suite-style rooms. Benefits to living on campus are numerous, and include excellent safety and security systems, security escort, superior dining services, parking lots, in-room amenities like wifi, and more.

With a wide variety of events and activities on campus—from Zumba® fitness classes to The Masque Theater troupe—there are tons of unforgettable experiences and adventures just waiting for you. Not to mention Center City, Philadelphia is just a short train, bus, or Uber ride away. You’ll always have roommates and friends around who will support you through every all-night study sesh, service project, and final exam. And since our Christian Brothers live on campus, too, you’ll have a few extra neighbors here to guide and mentor you.

Our office of Residence Life and Community Development wants you to feel welcome in your home away from home. We’re here to help if you have questions. Browse our site for valuable information on housing, meal plans, policies, accommodations and more, but feel free to drop us a line anytime.

Our Housing and Dining self-service system is available through the mylasalle portal—simply click on the Tools tab. Here you’ll find information specifically tailored to your needs, and you’ll be able to take action on your room selection processes, active room assignments, and active dining plans. On the La Salle portal, you’ll also find important information on a range of items, including:

  • Facilities for making maintenance requests
  • IT Helpdesk for addressing wireless network issues
  • Forms such as the Housing Extension Request Form and the Incident Report Form

One more thing to keep in mind: Explorers are never lost. So get out there and have an adventure—we’ll be here for you.
