Information for Parents
Welcome to CSB Residential Life!
We want the residence halls and apartments at the College of Saint Benedict to be a home away from home for your daughter. The residential experience is a positive and meaningful part of a student's college education. Living on campus promotes development of community on campus, lasting friendships and opportunities for engagement outside of the classroom. Encourage your daughter to get involved (participate in hall programs, activities, hall government, etc). Each woman who lives on campus is invited to take an active role in shaping the types of programs, events and activities offered each year!
This page is intended to help parents and family navigate their way around the Residential Life web site. We have taken the pages related to the most frequently requested information or questions from parents related to residential life and condensed the links to each page here for you. Our goal is to assist you in understanding the living communities within our halls, Residence Life and Student Life Policies and procedures on our campus. For additional information, visit the CSB Parent Relations page.
