Residence Hall Reservation & Move-In
Students registered for classes are able to register for housing and make their deposit ($300) payment online. Housing deposits are refundable before August 15, 2015. Information regarding the move in process and what students are encouraged to bring is emailed shortly after housing assignment notifications are sent.
Meet Your Roommate
RoomSync is a matching software through Facebook, that will help you find a roommate based on common interests. It is free and will be available in early June to students who have applied for housing. Residence Life makes the room assignments over the summer based on the date we receive the completed contract and payment, and will email the housing assignments along with roommate(s) contact information in early to mid-July to the student's LIU e-mail account.
Campus Life, LIU Promise and Student Government Association have planned an exciting week of events especially for you! Join us during Welcome Week, September 6 to 12, 2015.
