Campus Life

Room Changes

An important element of your experience at Lasell is residential life. In many respects, your experience living in a house or residence hall at Lasell can be an extension of your classroom education. Within your house or hall, you have the opportunity to be part of a community, to provide input regarding the expectations of community living, to participate in educational and social activities, and to learn from your peers in the process. The Office of Residential Life recognizes that not all people are compatible and at times a room change may be the only solution to a persistently difficult situation. The staff is available to assist resident students with any problem they may be encountering.

Break Housing

Break Housing provides students the opportunity to stay on campus between semesters. If a student is required to work an internship nearby, has an on-campus job, or is taking classes towards their degree during the winter or summer breaks, they are afforded the ability to stay on campus in a safe a secure environment. 

Room Draw

Room Draw is the process through which all current First-Year, Sophomore, Junior, and in some cases, Senior, students select the room in which they want to live during the academic year. All current Lasell students who wish to live in University housing must participate in the Housing Selection process. Students who do not participate in Room Draw are not guaranteed a place in a University-owned or operated building and must speak with the Coordinator of Housing Operations to request that their names be placed on the Wait List. Students on the Wait List will not normally be offered a room until all incoming students have been housed. Students who are not on the Wait List will not be considered for a place in any University-owned or operated buildings.

RA Selection

The Resident Assistant (RA) position is a unique opportunity to become part of a team of dedicated students and professionals who promote a safe and healthy living environment that is supportive of students' personal and academic growth. Each year, the Department of Residential Life hires 50 students who live in the residence halls to act as community developers, supporters of the academic and departmental mission statement, community standards educators, peer advisors, role models, and housing and facilities liaisons.
