Residence Hall (FAQ's)
Can I apply for a room if I haven't registered for classes?
Yes. You must have been issued at least tentative acceptance from the Admissions Office, completed the Residence Hall Application and License Agreement, and paid the $200 deposit before the room is assigned. Students are allowed to register for classes throughout the year, but you cannot be issued a room unless you have been accepted for admission to Lewis-Clark State College.
What is my address?
Your address will be:
Your Hall and Room Number - LCSC
500 8th Avenue
Lewiston, ID 83501
You will need to use the address above for all packages and letters. The Lewiston Post Office separates all of LCSC's mail which is then delivered to campus in bulk each day. If your address is not correct, you most likely will not receive the mail. This address is also used for all Express Mail, UPS or Federal Express. The Campus Mail room appreciates you receiving your mail by using the format above.
When is my mail delivered to my mailbox?
The Resident Assistants deliver the mail on a daily basis to each of the halls. The mail is distributed into your assigned mailbox, for which you have been given a key or a combination. The mail is picked up from the LCSC Campus Mail each day. It is then sorted for each hall and put into the box for pickup by the RAs. The mail is distributed into the mailboxes in the halls by 6:00 pm daily (Mon-Fri). The campus does not receive weekend mail. If you are expecting a Federal Express, UPS or package delivery, you will receive an email from the office that you have a package and stating where to pick it up. If you are expecting a package, please make sure to check your email by 4:00 pm on Friday in order to receive your package before the weekend, as there is no mail/package service on the weekend.
What if I don't know my ID Number?
That doesn't matter. The Office of Residence Life can look the ID# up in the student database, but if you know your number, you should include it on the housing application.
When will I receive roommate information?
The Office of Residence Life does our best to provide accurate roommate information. Often students sign up for housing and then decide not to come. For this reason, we wait to send roommate information until late July. We will send you a housing assignment after the State Board approves the rates, typically in late June or early July, but the roommate information will be later.
What furniture is provided for my room?
Clark Hall, Talkington Hall & Parrish House: The furniture in your bedroom includes: bunk beds, study desk(s), study chair(s) and a wardrobe with 2 drawers.
Clearwater Hall is furnished with a sofa, coffee table, dining table and chairs, full size refrigerator and microwave. The bedrooms are each furnished with a twin bed, a study desk and chair and a wardrobe with 2 drawers. The bedrooms each have their own heating & air conditioning. Since there are kitchenettes you will want to have a few microwaveable pans and dishes, and please bring wastepaper baskets. Shower curtains are provided. Clearwater Hall has wireless internet and there are television cable hookups in each private bedroom and in the living space. There is one telephone in the common area of each suite.
What should I bring?
Personal Items: We suggest bringing items that will help your room feel like home, items such as: posters, pictures, fan, pillows, linens/blankets (twin extra long), stereo, stuffed animals, towels & wash cloths, computer, desk lamp, and a clock. You will be responsible for cleaning your own suite, so please bring a small vacuum cleaner and other cleaning supplies.
Cleaning Supplies: If you live in Clearwater Hall or Parrish House please make sure you bring your own cleaning supplies. It is helpful to check with your suitemates to see what they plan to bring, or just getting together when you arrive to set up a cleaning scheduling and go on a supplies shopping trip. The Office of Residence Life stocks each of the suites with one roll of toilet paper, but it is your responsibility to furnish toilet paper for the year. If light bulbs need replacing, please contact your RA, or complete the form listed on our website at: http://www.lcsc.edu/reslife/Repairs.htm
Please do NOT flush paper towels, tissues or anything other than toilet paper; other items will clog the toilets and you will have to wait until the LCSC Physical Plant can fix the problem.
Can we have microwaves?
Yes, you can have microwaves, not greater than 700 watts. If you are living in Clark Hall, there is one microwave located in the basement kitchen. (See below for Clearwater Hall )

Clearwater Hall (kitchenettes)
The kitchenettes include cupboard space, sink, one microwave and one refrigerator.
