The Oce of University Housing provides on-campus accommodaons for
the freshman class. It is important for your student to abide by departmental
and university rules and regulaons. Being familiar with the Housing Handbook
by Freshman Move-In Day (Sunday, August 13, 2017) is the best way to start the
school year o right!
In early August, residenal students will receive a leer sent to their
university email address that details Move-In Day info. Roommate names and contact informaon will be
distributed two weeks before move in. We suggest reaching out to each other to get acquainted and maybe
plan room décor or who will bring what supplies to help cut costs and save space! Students will need to make
sure that their rst full payment for housing and meals is made prior to the Universitys deadline for tuion
and fees (Wednesday, August 9, 2017).

their rooms. Once at their building, the students should nd their belongings in their rooms awaing their

The Dining Services sta works to ensure UL Lafayee students, faculty, and sta receive the highest
caliber in dining and service. One of the top ways Dining Services does this is by catering to the allergy and
nutrional needs of its students as much as possible.
Despite nutrional opons in the cafeteria, college is well known for the Freshmen 15eect. UL
Lafayee Dining Services helps students ght the Freshmen 15 by acvely engaging them with the nutrional
calculator to help gauge food opons and serving sizes.
Dining Services oers many meal plan opons (including commuter) consisng of varying Cypress Lake
Dining Room meal swipes, ex meals used and retail locaons, and declining balance (dining dollars)
amounts. Should your student get to college and decide to alter his or her meal plan to beer t dietary
habits, all meal plans  through the rst week of school by vising the UL Dining Services
customer service table outside of the Cypress Lake Dining Room.
