Lodging During ROAR
Lodging on campus is only available for summer orientations. Please check the registration form or the section on orientation sessions to determine if lodging is available for the session plan to attend. 

Spending the Night on Campus
Lodging during ROAR is available to each student participant. Lodging on campus during ROAR is highly encouraged. By opting to stay on campus during orientation, you will have an opportunity to interact with other Lincolnites and sneak a glimpse into campus life at Lincoln. Students opting to stay on campus during ROAR are able to do so at no additional cost.  A room has been especially reserved just for you to give you a taste of what residential life is like at Lincoln University.

Students participating in special camps or programs (i.e., band, choir or football camp) in the month of August will receive housing accommodations.
