Resident Incentive Program


Residence Life offers a special incentive for Lamar University students in good standing living in university housing.

Each new LU resident who signs a housing contract for the 2020-2021 academic year will receive a $300 housing credit which will be applied to the student’s room rent in 2020-2021 ($150 per semester).

Current LU residents (2018-2019 academic year) who sign a housing contract for the 2019-2020 academic year are eligible and will receive a $400 housing credit for the 2019-2020 academic year ($200 per semester).

Eligibility Requirements:

  1. Residents must live in university housing for the entire academic year immediately prior to the academic year in which the housing credit is applied;
  2. Residents must have completed at least 30 credit hours at LU;
  3. Residents must have at least a 2.6 cumulative grade point average;
  4. The resident’s account balance with the university must be current and
  5. The resident must occupy a room in university housing when the credit is applied.
Residents who have a university or academic scholarship or an athletic scholarship from LU are not eligible for the housing credit. The credit will only be applied to room rent in university housing. The credit will not be applied to meal plans, tuition, fees, books or other university charges nor will the resident receive the credit as cash or cash equivalents.
