In an effort to enrich your overall educational experiences the offices of Housing Services and Residence Life work collaboratively to provide residential facilities that meet student developmental needs, support the formation of community, and encourage the creation of seamless learning environments.

Living in the residence halls is about more than your room — it is about being part of a dynamic and supportive community, both academically and socially. At The Catholic University of America, the educational experience is not limited to the classroom setting. During a typical week you will spend an average of 15 to 20 hours of your time in the classroom. While the remaining hours might find you studying in the library or engaged in extracurricular activities, much of your time will be spent in the residence halls. Our primary goal is to assist you in building connections to the larger university community in hopes that you will become an active participant in university life and gain a greater appreciation for community values and service. Regardless of where you live, you will consistently find a focus on faith, community standards, and personal development throughout the residential experience.

It is our sincere hope that you will choose to live on campus so that you may experience all the benefits inherent to residential living. Welcome to The Catholic University of America. We're so glad to have you here!
