Safety

Friendships

  • Endless opportunities to meet new people and develop lasting friendships

Involvement in activities

  • Off-Campus TRIPS including transportation

Convenience

  • All STU residence halls are a short distance to campus spots, The Bobcat Cafe, Library, Fitness Center, Mac Lab, Rathskellar, campus convenience store, the Chapel of St. Anthony, bookstore and classes. Residents enjoy the convenience of walking to classes and campus events.

Easy and Affordable

  • You pay one bill paid twice a year including all utilities, housekeeping/maintenance services, internet, local telephone, cable, and furnished room. Living off campus has hidden costs: Did you know that 71% of off-campus rentals are not furnished? By living on campus, you’ll avoid extra utility bills, rent, security deposits and expensive trips to the grocery store.

Amenities

  • Each of the Housing complexes offers their own laundry facility. Study lounges are available to residents of Villanova Hall and Cascia Hall. We also have recreational lounges with a ping-pong table, Wii and Xbox games, PlayStation and SEVERAL flat screen TVs, along with Air-hockey, Billiards Table and other games in the Rathskellar. STU has a large recreation field for residents and wellness center with a fitness room, locker rooms, and free gym time on our basketball/volleyball courts.
