Lyon College works to ensure every student is comfortable. Browse the links below for more information about the services available.
Lyon's housing follows the British collegiate house system. Designed around small-group living, students divide into subunits, or "houses," at the moment of enrollment. Within each house is a suite for a live-in faculty member who designs programs to integrate the academic and co-curricular aspects of campus life.
First-year students live in the centrally located Spragins House, which includes Blandford, Bryan, Love, and Spragins residence halls as well as the resident faculty member's home. Both first-year and upperclass students may live in Young House, which includes Hoke/McCain, McRae, and Wilson & Rogers residence halls. Upperclass students also have the option to set up house in the Brown and Barton apartments.
Students who are veterans, reside with their spouse, or are 21 years of age or older may reside off campus provided that they have informed the director of campus life in writing prior to the assignment of on-campus housing. Lyon-owned or non-college apartments and houses are available in the Batesville community.
Lyon's dining system is both easy and accomodating, providing a range of options and hours as well as flexible meal plans for students living on and off campus. Students have the option of eating in the Patterson Dining Hall or the Bistro. Meals include fresh fruits and salads, home-style entrées, freshly baked pizza and pasta, vegetarian options, Brenda's freshly baked desserts, and much more.
