Luckyday Residential College

Luckyday Residential College (LRC) has all of the amenities included in our contemporary halls as well as libraries, classrooms, and the RC Marketplace dining facility. Single-, double-, and quad-occupancy rooms are available in the RCs; singles and quads are reserved for sophomores and upperclassmen. Furniture in resident rooms includes a desk, desk chair, movable dresser, movable nightstand, closet, and twin extra-long or full (select rooms only) bed for each resident. Common areas in quad suites are furnished. LRC also has a 24/7 fitness room, study rooms, a full-size teaching kitchen, and an amazing green space that’s perfect for games and activities.

Members of the LRC include Luckyday Scholars (Luckyday scholarship recipients) and Luckyday Associates (students who are not recipients of the scholarship but who wish to benefit from the many academic, social, and service opportunities available to members).

LRC offers an unparalled university experience to members through programming, volunteering, partnering with members of the local community, mentoring, and academic encouragement.
