Campus housing is available to all undergraduate students at Lewis & Clark, but for a few students the four-semester requirement may be interrupted for a variety of reasons. The institutional expectation however, is that once the students return to campus, they will complete the four semester requirement. The College requires all entering students to live on campus for four semesters because we believe that your academic experience is enhanced by the learning that goes on outside the classroom.

For incoming students, housing contract documents will only be available starting in late January and once prospective students have viewed all acceptance letters in their Pioneer Portal.

Continuing students receive housing information through email early in March for submission in April.

For more information about life on campus and in the residence halls, please take a look at our You Belong Here brochure.

Refunds for housing

For Fall 2020 we gave students 4 full weeks from the start of the semester to terminate their room & board contract (without a withdrawal) to receive a prorated refund. This was due to students going remote for learning.  Campus Living will be doing the same thing for Spring. This means students will have until February 12 to move out and get a prorated refund.

As a reminder, withdrawals from the college always get a pro-rated room and board refund but if a student moves out without a withdrawal they are not generally entitled to any refund.
