The Lawrence Committee

The Lawrence Committee is a group of Lawrence residents, including graduate students and spouses or partners, elected to organize the community life of the Lawrence Apartments and represent the interests of Lawrence residents to the housing office.

All residents are always invited to all committee meetings, typically on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM in the community room in Building 1. There are no summer meetings.

Minutes from the committee meetings are located here.

To contact the committee regarding any problems, or if you have comments or questions, email The email will go to all the committee members, and whichever member the question is targeted at will respond as soon as possible. Please contact the Housing Office, not the Lawrence Committee, with any questions about Lawrence housing availability.

The committee’s aims and procedures are outlined in its Constitution. Generally, elections are held in December, and residents desiring to serve on the committee must have attended several meetings previously. Historically, the University has provided committee members with priority in the Spring housing draw, although this is by no means guaranteed in the future.

Community Associates also organize social and service events for graduate students.)

We recommend that all residents subscribe to the Lawrence Apartments email list. Subscription should happen automatically for students who are new residents. Others who would like to be on the list can follow the posted instructions.
