Graduate School Housing

Center for Graduate Studies of Hickory

On-Campus Availability

LR will again provide our Summers @ LR program on our Hickory campus during Summer term 2014.

The Summers @ LR program provides financial incentives to students who take more extensive Summer course loads, as follows:

  • If a student takes 11 hours or more (normally 6-7 hours each term), s/he may reside in a semi-private room for free during the two Summer terms.
  • If a student takes 8-10 hours (with at least one course each term), s/he may reside in a semi-private room for half of regular price.
  • Upon availability, the student may substitute a private room for semi-private living quarters for an additional up-charge.

Please note that if you withdraw from courses and do not complete/pay for the necessary hours, regular housing charges will apply for the time you remained in LR housing.

For Fall housing, there is a limited amount of regular graduate housing available.

All spots as noted above are limited and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Please email Jonathan Rink, Director of Residence Life, at for further details.
