The St. Edward's campus has seen a housing boom in recent years — with ribbon-cuttings on five new residence halls and more apartment-style options available to upperclassmen.
Traditional freshmen are required to live on campus in one of six coed residence halls.
Beyond Freshman Year
Sophomores and upperclassmen wishing to remain in on-campus housing can select from a variety of halls and apartment-style options, all based on availability.
Students with 30 or more credit hours are eligible to live in university apartments. Regardless of class year, all international students are also eligible to live in the apartments. All residents must be St. Edward's University students.
Keeping Campus Living Real and Interesting
Students living on campus run the Residence Hall Association and can serve on the Residence Event Planning Council for each hall or apartment building.
Regular Residence Life events keep campus life fun and interesting. Students come together for barbecues, sports-related programs, movie nights, Austin adventures, Waffleopolis to kick off each semester, Midnight Breakfast during final exams and educational/safety awareness programs.
