Welcome to Saint John's University Residential Life and Housing!

Residential living is an integral part of the Saint John's educational experience. We provide students with a home founded on Catholic, Benedictine values, where residents gain a better understanding of themselves as young men through their involvement in and strong commitment to community.

Through the support and personal attention of Faculty Residents, Resident Assistants, and the staff of the Office of Residential Life and Housing, we foster inclusiveness, mutual respect, personal responsibility, spiritual development, academic success, and good stewardship.
