I am Living. I am Lycoming.

Lycoming is more than just an education. It is a community, and for four years of your life, it is your home. Lycoming College’s Office of Residential Life paves the way for students to shape their own living experiences and engage with both the campus community and the Williamsport community in meaningful ways. Through the unique fusion of community programming and leadership opportunities, the Office of Residential Life supports students in the transition to collegiate life and enables them to positively impact their community.

They also develop programming aimed to allowed students to explore the Williamsport community.

  • Live on an Affinity Floor – Affinity housing at Lycoming allows students to live in an environment in which they have a say in community development, their own development as a student, and the growth of their community. These floors have a variety of specific focuses ranging from STEM, e-Sports, Management Studies and Languages of the World.
