Residential Life

Residential Living

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

Property Insurance

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 the property?
  • Electronics such as computers, televisions, cameras, etc., can depreciate significantly over time.
