Make sure your student gets a jump on housing for the 2017–2018 academic year. On-campus housing sign-up begins Feb. 15 on myHilltop. Here’s why and how your student should get started, and the housing options available for upperclassmen.

Convenience, Safety and Value

Living on campus is one of the best ways for students to stay connected to each other, their academic pursuits and everything that’s happening on the hilltop. Plus, it’s super convenient. Classrooms, support services, dining halls and coffee shops, the library, computer labs and fitness center are a quick stroll away. And the hilltop is an easy walk or bus ride to major retail stores and restaurants.

In campus housing, resident directors and resident assistants are on hand to provide guidance and support. And you can count on St. Edward’s to make campus safety a priority

Living on the hilltop is a great value, too. Expenses are set, so your student will know exactly how much will be spent on housing and dining. Costs are comparable to living off campus. And it eliminates the time and expense of commuting.
