Residential life is an integral part of the LVC learning
environment. Informal interactions among roommates and hallmates are
opportunities for students to learn more about themselves and about
others. In all residence hall settings, students have the opportunity
to learn about citizenship and responsibility, and are encouraged to
develop mature interests, skills and attitudes. They are held
accountable for adult standards of behavior. LVC's goal is a
living-learning environment that enhances student growth and
development through individual and group experiences. All students,
except those who are married or commuting from home, must live on
campus in a college-operated residence hall. A small number of upper
class students are excused from the residency requirement as a part of
the room selection process.
FAQs about Residential Living at LVC
Since the College is not responsible for students' personal property
that is lost, stolen, or damaged, we suggest that you review your
homeowners' insurance policy to confirm whether your son/daughter's
personal property is covered and, if necessary, to make arrangements
for additional insurance coverage. Students' property is the
responsibility of each individual student and no reimbursement from the
College can be expected for loss of such property.
A few things to consider when reviewing your policy:
Does the policy cover damage from fires or floods?
- Does the policy cover computers, stereos, or other electronic equipment?
- Does the policy cover the replacement cost or the actual value of

etc., can depreciate significantly over time.
