West Campus Apartments


West Campus Apartments offers LSU students space and privacy of apartments, with all the benefits and convenience of living on campus, including the option to stay for the summer. Conveniently located within walking distance of academic buildings, the Quad, and athletic venues, West Campus Apartments continues to be the next step for students after living in a residence hall.

With campus apartments' all-inclusive rates, residents can focus on academics since there are no monthly bills to pay or commuting to worry about. Parents can also rest easy knowing the same in-hall support staff in residence halls is available in on-campus apartments - a live-in professional, graduate and student staff is on site and available or on call 24/7/365. 

Find the staff offices in the WCA Activity Center along with the community front desk, study space, activity space, computer lab, and rec area. 

West Campus Apartments houses upperclassmen in 41 two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments, 60 four-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments, and 56 three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments.

Current on-campus residents, including first-year students, can select an apartment for next year in Nicholson Gateway Apartments, East Campus Apartments, West Campus Apartments, or in select residence halls during contract renewal in January/February.
