Lewis-Clark State College’s Residence Life program is dedicated to helping students make an easy transition from high school to college by creating a supportive on-campus community where ideas are shared, fun is had, and lifelong friendships are formed. 

About 7 percent of LCSC’s student population currently live in campus housing and get to know each other well by the end of the first semester through various functions. LCSC has four co-ed residence Halls: Clark Hall, Talkington Hall, Clearwater Hall, and Parrish House.  All of the buildings are co-ed.

  • Clark and Talkington are traditional style halls with mostly double/triple rooms with restrooms down the hallway. Clearwater is a suite-style hall with four-person suites that share a convenience kitchen, bathroom, and living room.  Clark is designated co-ed by floor.  Talkington is designated co-ed by wing.  
  • Clearwater Hall is a lot like living in an apartment but without a stove. There are 29 upperclass students who live in Parrish House, which features a full kitchen.  This hall is co-ed by suite, where the neighbors in the next suite could be male or female, however the individual suites are house same gender.
  • Parrish House is the only residence hall where students are not required to have a meal plan, where students have their meals prepared in the Student Union Building by Sodexo Food Services.  Because Parrish is so small, students choose the rooms they want to live in, so the whole building is co-ed.

Room rates vary depending on the Residence Hall and type of room. There is also an International Living Learning Community (ILLC) that houses 8 International students.

Residence Life offers many activities during the school year, both on and off campus.  Students pay a $25 per semester Activity Fee and most of the on and off campus events are free.  Ice skating, bowling, frozen yogurt, corn mazes, Scarywood, and roller skating are just some of the activities Residence Life organizes through the year along with some community service projects.
