SJU Residential Life and Housing

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.

The timeline and process for the Saint John’s University Residency Requirement Exemption Process is currently being reviewed.  An update will be shared on October 22, 2021. 

The Office of Residential Life and Housing advises all students not to sign a lease for an off-campus rental property without receiving an official Exemption from the Residency Requirement.  Committing to a lease agreement with an off-campus rental property is not grounds for nor merits an Exemption from the Residency Requirement.
