Clayton State University recognized the need to provide safe and affordable housing for students in the mid-2000s. In 2007, the Board of Regents approved the University to build its first residence hall to open for the Fall 2008 semester.
Laker Hall houses approximately 400 new, first-time, full-time freshmen. This state-of-the-art building features four bedroom/two bath suites with kitchenettes. In addition, residents have on-site access to study lounges, wireless high-speed internet, cable television, laundry facilities, and a game room.
In 2011, the University purchased Clayton Station Apartments, situated just adjacent to the Clayton State campus, which offer 2- and 4-bedroom suite-style units with private baths, full kitchen, living room, and washer and dryer. In 2016, students and faculty voted to change the name of the apartments to Laker Village.
To be the premier choice of affordable student living where the journey of personal growth toward excellence and the pursuit of meaningful community and citizenship is achieved.
We support the mission of the Division of Student Affairs and the University by providing a quality residential learning environment that enhances student academic success through intentional programming and mentoring, leadership opportunities, and accountability, in order to develop community-driven, globally-aware individuals.
