Our campers will be staying in McCarthy Residence Hall. Download the LMU campus map here. This facility gives students the opportunity to interact with many new people and make new friendships. Each student is provided an extra long twin bed, a desk, chair, bookcase, closet and small drawer unit in their room. Adjoining suites share a lounge with couches, a table, a microwave and a sink. The entire house shares another, larger lounge with couches, armchairs, a coffee table, study tables, chairs and blackboards.
Students living in the residence halls are not responsible for their own housekeeping and cooking. Meals are provided for resident campers in the cafeteria. No pets are allowed in the res halls, other than fish in small tanks. All residential life policies apply.
