About Housing

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 become an inclusive residential community that develops independent and moral thinkers by modeling civic engagement and prioritizing academic success.


We provide a secure, affordable, and progressive living community through hands-on academic support, experiential learning, and unique leadership opportunities that enhances our students’ growth and development.
