Welcome to the Guide to Residence Hall Living!


The purpose of this guide is to serve as a resource and provide detailed information needed by you while you reside on campus. If you find yourself in need of additional assistance, we expect and encourage you to contact the ULM Department of Residential Life.

By accepting a housing offer and moving in, you are expected to live by the rules, regulations, and policies which the University has set. If you disagree with the institution's policies or regulations, we encourage you to motivate change through the appropriate supervisory channels. If you cannot change them and still cannot live with them, then on-campus living may not be for you.

While this guide is an important reference for living on-campus, it is also expected that you will be familiar with the following University publications:

The Guide to Residence Hall Living contains information on policies and procedures that will be semesterly revised and changes may be made, as deemed necessary by the Department of Residential Life Operations, the Office of Auxiliary Enterprise Administration, or the Division of Student Affairs.

ESA Approval Process

Please keep in mind the process and deadlines, and that this may take time. Animals cannot be brought onto campus or in residence until all paperwork has been completed and approved through the Self-Development, Counseling, and Special Accommodations Center AND all supplemental documents submitted to and approved by Residential Life.

Community Health Crises

In times of health events, residents must notify the office to protect the community at large. Learn more in the Guide to Residence Hall Living. Remember to limit visitors and gatherings, maintain proper personal hygiene, clean/disinfect areas for your personal belongings, self, and room/common areas, and wash hands or use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. We ask that you continue to respect those in our community. Your academic pursuit still continues and the residence halls should maintain their academic mission.

Quarantine Rules & Regulations

COVID-19 is a very serious infection that affects people in different degrees. Some students will not have any symptoms but they are still contagious. Other students will have severe symptoms. You must follow these instructions and those given to you by the medical professional where you were tested and from this institution. These will be updated frequently as the university will continue to abide by COVID-19 directives from the state of Louisiana, the University of Louisiana System, and follow CDC guidelines.

Roommate/Suitemate Agreement

The document above is a roommate agreement/mediation tool to establish the basic rights of those within a living unit. The document may be used as individual parts or in conjuction with each other. Residents may choose to do this on their own with their roommate(s)/suitemate(s) or they may choose to complete with all parties in the presense of a Resident Assistant.
