EnnsOn-Campus
KarkluOff-Campus

Enns Hall

  • 140 Students
  • 4 floors of 35 residents
  • 4 person, 5 person, 6 person rooms
  • One 2-person handicap-accessible room
  • shared common entryway, a private WC and shower, a food storage area and refrigerator.
  • The bedroom areas are furnished with bunk beds, desks, chairs and shelves for each student.

Neumann Hall

  • 258 beds
  • 5-6 people rooms
  • 6 stories
  • 10 residential wings with shared kitchen on each wing
  • Features study rooms, computer lab, bike storage, large lobby area
  • Laundry on first floor

Karklu Hall

  • Location Karklu is 30 minutes away by foot, 15 minutes by bike or bus (#9) and 7 minutes away by vehicle (although parking in the area is for a fee and very limited).
  • Floor Each floor offers 6 rooms sharing a kitchen and lounge. Complimentary room cleaning is provided weekly and kitchen cleaning is provided daily. Access to each floor would be limited to LCC students only.
  • Furniture Each student is provided with a bed, chair, desk and closet. Unlike Neumann and Enns, none of the beds are bunks and all of the furniture except the closet is movable so room configuration can be customized to student preference.
  • Assignments Similar to on-campus housing, all rooms are single-gender, all floors are mixed gender and the Housing Coordinator manages all assignments.
  • Building Students from 3-5 local universities and colleges typically occupy the 12-floor building and share the laundry facilities in the basement. Similar to Neumann and Enns, washers and dryers do not have a fee for usage and wifi is provided by Klaipeda University. Demand will determine how many floors LCC will occupy in the building.
  • Room Each room includes a private bathroom and two bedrooms with doors. These are 5-people rooms. The smaller bedroom accommodates two students while the larger bedroom accommodates three students. Each bedroom includes its own refrigerator/freezer (unlike Neumann and Enns which has one shared for both bedrooms).
  • Staffing The facilities staff and 24/7 reception staff speak Lithuanian and Russian. Similar to Neumann and Enns, LCC would provide additional support staff such as a Resident Assistant for each floor and a Discipleship Assistant for the community.
  • Fees Similar to on-campus housing, Student Financial Services will charge student accounts. A space in Karklu will cost 400 EUR per semester to account for differences in accommodations

Storage

  • You may put items in storage in the last two weeks of a semester during storage hours (20:15-21:15 or during checkout with your RA
  • Items can be removed from storage the first two weeks of the semester during storage hours (20:15-21:15).

Assignments

  • Placement:
    • Room Selection – applicants who participated the Fall sign up process in Spring 2022 were able to choose a space and roommates.
    • Waitlist – location is subject to availability for students offered a space via this process.
    • Transfer Request – residents with a confirmed space may request a transfer up until the end of add/drop week via the appropriate form in eRezLife, however, granting of requests increases the earlier it is submitted.  Requests after add/drop week are typically not granted due to the difference in billing, additional preparation required and disruption to affected residents.
  • Roommates:
    • Applicants who applied and paid the deposit by the deadline were able to create roommate groupings by using the “Roommate Group” and “Roommate Search” menus (only visible if desired roommate has a completed application).
    • All other applicants’ roommates are subject to availability.
    • Most rooms for returning students has a reserved bed for a Center for International Education student (Study Abroad, Erasmus or International Exchange).

Waitlist

  • Students that are on a housing wait-listwill be contacted by the Housing Coordinator as bed-spaces open up.
  • Wait-list students do not need to pay a housing deposit and/or housing fee until offered a space. If the bed becomes available, the Housing Coordinator will communicate with the students on the wait-list individually through their LCC email. The Housing Coordinator removes all students from the list who are no longer interested or do not respond by the indicated deadline.
  • Opting out of housing after the housing application was submitted and deposit/housing fee was charged will result in the 60 EUR charge on the account.
  • The wait-list takes into account the Priority Criteria first and later spaces are offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
  • Housing cannot be guaranteed to wait-list students. Therefore, all students on the wait-list are encouraged to secure accommodations either prior to leaving campus in the spring or prior to classes in the fall by returning to campus early.

Non-University Housing Resources

Considerations

As we approach and plan for the fall semester, we must account for the following external factors:

  • Travel restrictions and border closing(s) that changes frequently
  • Social distancing laws and government-mandated health regulations 
  • Requirements for students arriving from outside of Lithuania 

Decisions

To accommodate an easy move-in and ensure the health and safety of our residents:

  • Residence Hall rooms will resume regular occupancy of 4-6 students per room.
  • On-campus housing is currently reserved only for students registered as on-site. If space permits – spaces can be offered to offsite students in Klaipeda.
