Apartment Style Living
Longwood is a residential institution that features residence life education focusing on student learning and personal development as part of our distinct academic mission. Therefore, students are required to live in Longwood-managed housing unless the Office of Residential and Commuter Life (RCL) approves their release to off campus housing. However, Longwood understands the disadvantages to dorm life and offers 3 managed apartment complexes.
In order for your student to live in one of these 3 complexes, they must complete an application and meet the academic requirements for the apartment in which they want to live in.
Each year, housing holds an electronic application process beginning in mid-February. Priority is given first to current residents of the complexes and then it opens up on a first come, first serve basis with consideration to a student's academic year. However, priority is given to those students who have arranged to fill an entire unit. Students who have fewer than the required number of people are placed wherever possible.
Read the specific requirements for each complex below.
