Residential Life

Lyon College offers various housing options, from single and double occupancy to community and suite-style bathrooms. Lyon also offers Resident Mentors who live in Spragins House and Young House.

Single students under the age of 21 years who are not veterans must either reside in College-owned housing, commute daily from their parents’ primary residence no more than forty-five miles from the campus, or receive a written exemption from the Associate Dean of Students.

Dining Services

Lyon College's dining system is both easy and accommodating, providing a range of options and hours as well as flexible meal plans for students living on and off campus.
