Residence Security

Shared Responsibility for Security

The security of Student Housing also depends upon residents working together with Housing Services to promote a safety-conscious community. See Security Services.

Residents are expected to be vigilant about security, by keeping room or suite doors locked at all times. It is not acceptable to prop doors open and you should not allow non-residents to come through residence doors when you enter or leave.


Dining Plans Are Available For Everyone

Anyone can purchase a dining plan, but all New University Students living in University Hall, Kainai House or Piikani House are automatically enrolled in a minimum Commuter Residence Dining plan, with no option to "opt out." This is a "room and board" program.

Note: U of L ID card is NOT accepted by any of the food vendors at the U of L Students' Union Building
