Saint Joseph’s University offers four living accommodation options: residence halls, campus houses, townhouses and campus apartments. All of our housing options allow residents from different backgrounds, classes and majors to live together throughout their stay at the University. Hall members can eat together, form athletic teams, engage in social activities and share ideas and experiences.

The Office of Residence Life does not guarantee on-campus for graduate students. For the upcoming 2022-2023 Academic Year, however, we anticipate limited space that may be available for graduate students interested in SJU Housing.
Housing During Breaks
The University offers some housing accommodations for students who need to stay on campus during winter or summer break due to extraordinary or school-related purposes. If you need to stay on campus during those periods, please review the break housing agreement and submit a request.
