Most of the homes near LSU are located in residential subdivisions. The lists below include some of the larger communities nearby, but there are many more. Subdivisions are likely to have homeowners associations with modest annual dues. Dues typically pay for things like landscaping at entrances, lighting, security, parties or special neighborhood events. Some subdivisions have community pools and/or tennis courts. University Club Plantation has the closest private golf course. There are also multiple public parks, recreation facilities, restaurants, and shops as well as two large shopping and retail locations – The Mall of Louisiana and Perkins Rowe. And of course, there’s LSU, with thousands of students, faculty, staff, academic programs, community events, and sports.
If you are a parent of an LSU student you may want to consider purchasing a condo or townhome. There are many options available. Important factors to consider include proximity to campus, weather or not the property is located near an LSU bus route, monthly association dues, and maintenance covered by the homeowners association. And, like most parents, you’re likely to be interested in resale or rental opportunities after your son or daughter finishes school.
