Many of our incoming LSU Law students have trouble deciding whether to live on or off campus, to live alone or with roommates, to live within walking distance or driving distance of the law center, etc. Below are some of resources we hope will help you make the decision process a little easier.
2015 Housing Guide – Our law ambassadors have created a review of housing options they have resided in during their time here. The reviews and comments in the guide are from current law students and are not the opinions of LSU, the LSU Law Center, or the LSU Law Admissions Department.
If you are interested in living off-campus visit LSU’s (main campus) online tool for its students to utilize. This site includes properties for rent and sale, as well as message boards to find roommates, buy and sell furniture, and a resource center with information on safety, links to helpful LSU departments and visitor information. The site is a user-friendly, searchable database for students that includes photographs and floor plans; maps showing the housing location’s proximity to the LSU campus; direct links to a property owner’s or manager’s e-mail, website and application for lease, as well as unlimited text descriptions and lists of amenities. Log on to https://offcampushousing.lsu.edu/ to get started.
Students may choose to live on campus in East Campus Apartments (ECA) located directly across the street from the Law Center. LSU Law center is allotted a certain number of suites which we do our best to assign strictly to law students. To access more information regarding ECA and to see a detailed description of the apartments, please visit the housing website at https://sites01.lsu.edu/wp/reslife/east-campus-apartments/. Interested students must submit their housing application through their myLSU account.
The Apartment Finder guide is a great resource for housing options in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. The listings include details regarding pricing, amenities, and locations. Please visit their website for more details at http://www.apartmentfinder.com/ or pick up a guide in the Admission’s Office.
Trulia is also a great search engine that provides housing and community information with detailed graphical data to easily search housing, room rentals, commute times, recreational activities, attractions, heat maps, transportation/traffic info, etc. — all in one spot. The information is provided from resources including the US Census Bureau, local MLS, and partner Yelp.
