New Incoming Students
Required Residency Policy
All Freshmen and Sophomores not living with their parents or legal guardians will be required to live on-campus. Please refer to the Required Residency Policy for more information.
General Information for New, Incoming Residents
New students who have confirmed through the Admission Office that they will be a Resident student for the upcoming academic year, should then fill out a Housing Application. When you make your decision to attend La Salle, you should complete the required Confirmation of Acceptance form, and, if you are a resident student, you should complete the Application for Housing Form provided (either the paper form, or we encourage you to use the online confirmation/housing application as directed by the Admissions office).
Finding a Roommate
Now that you are an official member of the La Salle Class of 2020, we encourage you to get to know your fellow classmates and if possible, to identify a potential roommate for the 2016-2017 Academic Year. La Salle University offers a web-based tool that will allow you to identify characteristics that are important to you in a college roommate. The website will also allow you to share information with other students and to simultaneously learn a bit more about your future classmates.
We would encourage you to take the first step in the roommate selection process by creating an account on the Please Don’t Snore @ La Salle website. You will need your new La Salle University e-mail address and the password that was e-mailed to you from Admission on May 23.
Once you have successfully logged in, you will need to create your profile and identify your preferences. As others do the same, you can identify who matches closely with you and reach out to them.
The Please Don’t Snore @ La Salle website allows students to begin requesting roommates with other new students beginning June 1 and will accept roommate requests through June 19. The University will then begin assigning requested roommates to specific rooms in residence halls. If you would prefer we assign you with a random roommate, that can be arranged as well. Room and roommate assignments will be shared with you in early July. If you have questions you may send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215-951-1370. We look forward to seeing you at Day ONE and Access La Salle.
Assignments and Roommate Requests
Housing assignments will be made in June and continue through July. Your specific Housing Assignment information will be sent to your home address in July. We make every effort to house incoming students based on their preferences (as submitted on the Housing Application) and the date of submission. Students may update their Housing Application by contacting Mary Davis via e-mail at email@example.com. Please note that the Housing Selection Process (Steps 1 through 3) is for current, returning students only.
New incoming students applying after June 1 of the upcoming academic year will receive assignments based on availability.
For new and returning students, information on how to access their assignment information will be sent in the mail during the summer (typically around mid-July). When viewing their room information online, there is a feature which allows them to easily send the room assignment and mailing address to any email address. We encourage you and your student to discuss the best way to stay in touch while he or she is at school and to talk about what personal information will be shared with parents and family.
Please Note: Housing assignments and related personal information, such as a roommate assignment, can only be released to the student. In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Community Development staff members cannot give housing information to any person except for the student. For more information please visit: http://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html If you have additional questions or need help getting a message to your student, please call Community Development at 215-951-1370. We’d be more than happy to explain the Housing Selection Process and how to best advise your student.
Questions, call the Community Development office at 215-951-1370.
