Commonly Asked Questions

How do I pay for my room and meal plan?
Your room and meal plan charges are posted to your myLSUE account.  You pay your room and meal plan charges the same way you pay your tuition and fees by logging in to your myLSUE account, and paying with a credit card.  You may also pay in person at the Business Office on the first floor of the Science Building with a Visa or Mastercard.  For more information on making payments to LSUE, contact the Business Office at 337-550-1262.

Can you help me find a roommate?
We provide a roommate matching service.

May I have visitors?
Certainly, but you are responsible for their behavior. Overnight guests are welcome as long as all roommates agree and the guest is not living there regularly.

I am on financial aid.  Do you defer payment until I receive my aid?
You may defer your room and meal payment for a limited time. Again, your room and board is posted to your myLSUE account. Contact the Business Office at 337-550-1262 for more information on Financial Aid deferments. 

Do you close for the Summer or during Holiday breaks?
Bengal Village is closed for the Winter Break between Fall and Spring semesters. Contact the Housing Office to inquire about Winter Break housing options.  Only students who have signed Full Year or Summer Only contracts are permitted to stay during the summer months.

I have my own furniture.  Can I remove yours?
You are more than welcome to supplement our existing furniture package with personal items and furniture you feel would make your home more comfortable. You may not remove the furniture provided from the apartment.

I am arriving prior to the move-in date, can I move in early?
We will not be able to accommodate early arrivals and you will need to find alternate accommodations if you plan to arrive before pre-scheduled the move-in date. 

My roommate and I are different people and we do not really like each other. Can I be released from my contract?
Attending college and deciding to live in a student community often means living with a roommate. Roommates may have diverse experiences and may come from different cultures. Our housing staff is trained at helping roommates work through concerns to negotiate resolutions to problems. Unfortunately, space is not always available to offer relocatioen, and there is a $200 fee associated with approved room change requests. You cannot be released from your contract with us for not liking your roommate, but our housing staff will take effort to ensure your living situation is optimal to your academic success at LSUE.
