Housing FAQs


Why don’t we say “dorms”?

At Lynn, we believe that the word dorm just means a place to sleep. We don’t offer ordinary dorm rooms, we provide residence halls. Our residence halls act as your home away from home by offering community spaces where you can meet people, study, relax, watch TV and play games. It’s a place to live and learn, and it’s an important part of your journey here at Lynn University.

What furniture is provided?

Each room has one bed, one mattress, one desk, one desk chair and one dresser/wardrobe unit per person. A mirror, closet and overhead light are standard in most rooms.

Are there computer, cable and/or phone connections in my room?

One cable jack and basic cable are provided in each room; all residence halls have wireless connections.

Can I smoke in my room?

All buildings on campus are smoke-free.

Do I have to clean my own bathroom?

Community bathrooms are cleaned daily by the housekeeping staff; no housekeeping services are provided for individual rooms or private baths.


How do I find out who my roommate is?

You’ll be matched with a roommate with the help of a special housing questionnaire once your housing deposit is received. Your roommate's information is emailed to your Lynn email in early to mid-July so you can contact him or her before you come to campus.
