Since La Roche is a relatively new institution (founded in 1963), the facilities are all fairly modern. The residence halls are kept clean, even over the summers, so they feel brand new at the beginning of each fall semester. The library is in good condition, but the lack of updated books makes it less appealing to students in search of information. The gymnasium is in excellent condition and has new locker rooms and a beautiful hardwood floor. The weight rooms are tidy, but a lot of the machines are broken or missing pieces that the College cannot afford to replace. The academic building is nicely equipped with computers in each classroom and a projector in every room. The computer lab has many computers with updated operating systems. The cafeteria is spacious and clean.
The major complaint students have about the facilities is that they are not open during hours that accommodate some people's schedules. The cafeteria is only open a few hours during each meal time, making it difficult for students to fit in three meals a day around hectic class schedules. The gym opens early in the morning but is often unavailable to students who are not on sports teams because of ongoing events and practices. But aside from this, the students seem to be extremely satisfied with the facilities and buildings on this beautiful, suburban campus.
