Some of St. Lawrence’s housing options include sustainable, “green” cottages built by habitat for humanity. Some of these cottages were specificallly designed as safe havens for LGBT students, a population St. Lawrence has long supported in numerous ways.

St. Lawrence is also governed by its students, with a group of elected students acting as liasions between student and faculty and staff.

Student life at St. Lawrence is rich in creative arts offerings. A theatre, a fine art gallery and a performing arts center are just some examples. Additional student life options include athletic teams and student organizations.

Merit scholarships, loans, grants and other forms of financial aid are avaialable to those who qualify.
