You're Accepted! What's Next?

Thinking about housing? Consider The Suites at Laker Landing, just a short walk from your classes and campus activities. There is a separate application for The Suites, and rooms are not guaranteed, so it is important to apply for housing once you make a decision. You must be accepted to FLCC before you apply for housing.
