Students in Residence at Vincentian

The Students in Residence Program, offered in partnership with Vincentian Collaborative System, offers a unique opportunity for LRU students to live and interact with seniors at Terrace Place at Vincentian, an independent living community for individuals 55 and older.

How it Works

  • If you're accepted to the program, you'll live in a Terrace Place apartment with another participating student for one academic year.
  • In exchange for free room and board, you'll spend time with residents for a minimum of six hours per week.
  • You may volunteer to provide technology assistance, organize events, perform light housework or provide dedicated social time.

How to Apply

Applicants must:
  • Be entering their sophomore year or higher. 
  • Have a current GPA of at least 2.5.
  • Be in good standing with the University.
  • Submit a completed application and three references.
Vincentian requires all students to obtain appropriate clearances, a TB shot and an annual flu shot. Students also undergo a physical and a drug screen.

A maximum of six LRU students are accepted each year. All University policies apply to the La Roche Students in Residence program.
