9 Reasons to Live On Campus

9 Reasons to Live On Campus

Living on campus means that you're just a few steps away from friends, classes, and the exciting entertainment that Austin has to offer. Here are 9 advantages to on-campus living.

Sign Up for Fall Housing

If you need an on-campus housing accommodation such as assistance animals, location requests, or assistive devices, submit a request to Student Disability Services (SDS). SDS staff reviews all requests in consultation with Residence Life.

Move-In/Move-Out and Other Important Dates

Here are important housing dates to help you plan out your semester and academic year.

Housing and Meal Plan Rates

Visit the Billing and Financial Aid pages to see the current housing and meal plan rates. You'll use your Hilltopper ID card to purchase meals at campus dining facilities. 

Spring Housing Availability

The spring 2020 housing application will open October 1, 2019 via the housing portal, accessed through myHilltop. Spring housing assignments are made on a first come first serve basis. Housing assignments will be emailed to students in December 2019. Meal plans are assigned to the student in conjunction with their housing assignments. If you wish to change your meal plan, you may do so at the Hilltopper Card Office in Main Building G3. 

Summer Housing Availability

The Summer 2020 housing application will open in April, 2020 through myHilltop. If you are taking classes at St. Edward's, participating in research programs, or working on campus over the summer, then housing will be available on campus in our summer residence hall (TBD). If you are a CURRENT Spring 2020 apartment resident, you may remain in your apartment for the summer as long as you meet one of the previously mentioned criteria and are assigned to an apartment for the 2020-2021 academic year. Meal plans are not available during the summer session.

Apartments for the Fall 2020 semester will be available for check-in late August. Students who are not already living in the apartments during Spring 2020 will not be permitted to live in an apartment over the summer.

First-year students are not eligible for summer housing prior to the completion of their freshman year.

Missing Student Protocol

If you have reason to believe that an enrolled residential student is missing, immediately notify the St. Edward’s University Police Department at 512-448-8444 or contact a Residence Life staff member.
