The Village hosts a diverse range of residents from all over the world and across the United States, and we see this as a true strength of our community.

We also provide Military Housing for long or short term stays for the Navy and Airforce. Many interns and medical and nursing students attending Oshners or LSU New Orleans live in our community on a long term or short term basis.

Can I choose my roommates?

If you’d like to share an apartment with a friend, please specify this on your roommate matching form. The sooner you make your application with your friend and make the request, the more likely we can place you in the same apartment. Don’t wait until late in the season, as it becomes harder for us to accommodate special requests when we have limited space remaining!
