    About Residence Life

    The Housing and Residence Life Department of Lackawanna College seeks to advance knowledge, both formal and informal, to create an environment that will allow all resident students to obtain their intellectual and personal goals.

    You will have opportunities to grow personally and professionally while rooming on campus. Our staff aims to help you create positive memories for you to allow you to look back at your time here as a successful one; with good grades, good times, and lasting friendships.

    We also expect that, as members of the residential community, you will take Lackawanna College’s mission to heart. Our mission is to provide a quality education to all persons who seek to improve their lives and better the communities in which they live. Your opportunity to uphold our mission starts today. We have established a strong foundation for you through a quality education, but it is up to each student to take the time and effort needed to succeed in the classroom. In our residence halls and across our campus, we all have a responsibility to keep the community safe, inclusive, and enjoyable for all.

    The College has a dining hall and three residence halls available for students who attend the Scranton campus. All residence hall rooms include a bed, desk, chair, closet, central air conditioning, wireless internet, a micro-fridge, and cable TV. Laundry facilities are also available on site.

    All full-time students who do not commute daily from home must reside in campus housing while actively enrolled in college courses. Currently, adequate housing is available for all full-time matriculated undergraduate students.

    Students should refer to the residence life calendar for appropriate check-in and check-out dates.

    A residential meal plan is an essential part of the residence life experience. Its implementation alleviates one of the concerns most students face while living away from home and allows students to concentrate solely on his or her studies and other activities associated with college life.

    Meal services are offered in the Dining Commons on the second floor of the Culinary Center located at 409 Adams Ave., Scranton.

    Resident students may choose either the Gold Plan (19 meals per week) or the Silver Plan (15 meals per week).
