The Southern University at New Orleans Student & Housing facility provides apartment style living for students and faculty.  The beautifully designed units are fully furnished and offer amenities such as a computer lab, a fitness room, an activity center, on-site postal service, shuttle service, and telephones.  The units are affordably priced to include the cost of utilities such as telephone, cable and internet.  Financial aid is available for those students who qualify.


Residents may select from a single bedroom, double bedroom, or four bedroom occupancy apartments. Each unit is equipped its own laundry room complete with a washer/dryer and a living room.


Additionally every unit has:

  • Standard college furniture  such as bed, dresser, desk, chair, and sofa
  • Stove
  • Refrigerator
  • Dishwasher


Handicap facilities are located in the some first floor units.


In response to resident’s recommendation, we are happy to announce that the meal plan has been reduced to $600.00 per semester with revised Knight Dining Hall hours.


Please stop by and visit our luxury apartments Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We think you will agree that our Residential Life community is a Knight’s Place to Live.
