(Cancellations fees apply after this date see the CSB Campus Housing Agreement for full details).

Students should visit the Residential Life & Housing SharePoint site for more information regarding the Mid-Year Cancellation Policy.

Fall Long Weekend Break is October 10-12th​! Are you staying on campus?

The Residential Life & Housing Office strongly encourages you to take the Long Weekend Break to spend time away with your family and/or other loved ones. We recognize that not everyone will be leaving campus for the Long Weekend. So what should you do if you need to stay on campus?

You must submit notice of your intent to remain on campus by filling out a Long Weekend Notice of Stay found on the Housing Portal.  We ask that you complete the Long Weekend Notice of Stay no later than 4:00 pm, Wednesday, October 7th.  This allows us to know who is on campus in the event of an emergency during Long Weekend as well as share updates regarding adjusted hours of campus services with those who choose to stay on campus.

CSB Off-Campus Selection Process Information

​The Residential Life program at the College of Saint Benedict provides a four year residential experience of community living which supports and challenges our students with opportunities for personal and social growth. As a Benedictine, liberal arts college, we believe that living in a community is of central importance to the student experience and all students are required to live on campus.
