Features and Amenities

setzer student center

The Setzer Student Center completed a major renovation project in April 2018, and the brand-new space was designed with students in mind! The Student Organizations Workroom gives LU's 150 student organizations a space of their very own to work on events and activities.

On the second floor, our updated offices include space for the Student Government Association, Event Services, Student Organization Services, the Cardinals Activities Board, New Student & Leadership Programs, the Dean of Students, and the Vice President of Student Engagement.
