East Campus Apartments


East Campus Apartments offers LSU students space and privacy of apartments, with all the benefits and convenience of living on campus. Conveniently located within walking distance of academic buildings, the Student Union, and the University Recreation Center, East Campus Apartments proves to be the next step for sophomores after living in a residence hall as a first-year student. 

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 ECA Activity Center along with the community front desk, study space, activities, programs, a TV lounge, email work stations, and recreational activities.

Sophomore Experience in ECA  

Sophomores living in ECA continue to enjoy the benefits of a living-learning community beyond freshman year. ECA focuses on the sophomore experience, with programs centered on career preparation, networking, and business etiquette. This opportunity for second-year students to receive academic and professional mentorship is the next step after residence halls.
