Campus information

Life outside the classroom is wide and varied. Not only do we have one of the world's largest backyards to hunt, fish, bike, ski, snowshoe and just relax, there are more than 60 campus clubs and organizations to get involved with.

The 115-acre campus is situated on the site of the former U.S. Army's Fort Brady, fourteen of LSSU's buildings are listed on various historic registers, creating a unique campus environment. 


If you are a full-time student within 27 calendar months of the date of your high school graduation, you are required to live on campus. For this purpose, “full-time” means enrolled for 12 or more credit hours, and all graduation dates will be assumed to be June 1 of any given year.

The following are exceptions to this policy:
