A paved path leading to Hogan Hall on a spring day at Saint Joseph's University




An opportunity for students in recovery to access enhanced community support while pursuing an active, on-campus life and academic experience.

The Recovery Residence at Hogan Hall is a unique residential opportunity for Saint Joseph’s students in active recovery to live in a supportive community environment, all while maintaining their academic life on Hawk Hill. This innovative effort is the first-of-its-kind in the Philadelphia region and serves as the centerpiece of Saint Joseph’s collegiate recovery program, offering support for every facet of a student’s residential experience. The residence is staffed and supported by personnel from the University’s collegiate recovery program, a collaborative effort between the Office of Counseling & Psychological Services and the Office of Student Outreach & Support, including an on-site program manager who directly supervises the residence, an alcohol and drug therapist who both counsels students and serves as clinical advisor, and a case manager who coordinates various on- and off-campus support resources for the residents. The residence encourages health and wellness in mind, body and spirit for our students in recovery.
