Residential Life

Welcome to Residential Life!

You should expect to have a rewarding, enjoyable educational experience living on campus. You will be meeting, living, and learning with a wide diversity of people, people from many cultures, faith backgrounds and personal experiences. Our efforts and programs are designed to provide students opportunities to further explore important questions that shape their general education experience:

  1. Who are we as a College community?two women giving smiles of welcome
  2. Who am I?  Who am I becoming?
  3. How am I in community with my neighbors?

Our Mission

In keeping with the mission of the College and the Benedictine tradition, the Residential Life Team of the College of St. Scholastica is committed to providing a growth-oriented living situation for students choosing campus housing. Additionally, the Residential Life Team seeks to facilitate students' transitions to interdependent living away from home through the encouragement of owned, responsible decision-making while also functioning as a support network and as a resource base.

Summer housing residents will have one week at the beginning and end of the summer months to transition from the spring-to-summer and summer-to-fall spaces. We have two summer transition periods. One will be at the end of spring term when we clean the apartments so students can move into their summer spaces, we plan on having all spaces cleaned and students into their summer spaces during the week of May 15th. The second transition period will be the week of August 7th at which time we will have students move into their fall spaces. If you do not have a 2017-18 fall housing contract you will be required to move off campus by August 5th.
