Living on Campus

RA Winter Training

As a Catholic & Jesuit university, we are committed to the holistic development of each individual student.  The experiences and opportunities found in our halls become as much of a factor in students' lives as  in the classroom.  The University of Scranton has a very strong community built on respect for each member.

Our housing is differentiated by matriculation status (social class).  First-year students are housed in traditional double rooms and share a community restroom.  Sophomores have suite-style housing, in which two double rooms share a restroom.  Upper-class and graduate students are offered apartments and houses with single or double bedrooms and shared kitchens, living rooms, and restrooms.

Our buildings are staffed by Resident Assistants (RAs).  These student staff members live in the halls and serve as a first-line resource for residents.  They help ensure that our buildings are safe and conducive to academic success beyond the classroom.  RAs provide community-building programs that give residents a chance to come together, build relationships, and develop life skills.

All that we do is intended to make living on campus enjoyable!  Students can pursue their hobbies, relax, study in groups, and learn more about who they are and who they want to become.
