Spring 2024 Housing Information

On this page, you will find important information about housing options and processes for the upcoming semester.

Information for Incoming First-Year and Transfer Students

Saint Joseph's University offers several housing options for incoming first-year and transfer students arriving in the spring semester. All students must complete a housing agreement within the Housing Portal. Incoming First Year and Transfer Students will receive an email with additional information about the Housing Portal.

Many of our housing options also require a dining plan. Information about dining plan options can be found on the Saint Joseph's Dining Services website.

Once you have completed a housing agreement, you may then submit a Spring 2024 Housing Preference Form. We will process housing assignments based on the preferences listed on this form and space availability in our system. All students will receive an email confirmation when a housing assignment has been processed.

Information for Returning Students

If you're returning to on-campus housing and already have a 2023-2024 Housing Agreement on file:

Current students with a completed housing agreement on file and who are returning from a co-op, internship or leave of absence will receive an email from the Office of Residence Life in November at which time they should complete a Spring 2024 Housing Preference Form.

We will begin to process housing placements for returning students in December and will continue to process assignments on a rolling basis through the start of the spring semester. Please be aware that our ability to make assignments is based on the number of spaces available and the requests of all returning students. We are not able to guarantee placement in preferred buildings or room types, however, we will do our best to accommodate the preferences provided.

If you're returning to on-campus housing but have not yet submitted a 2023-2024 housing agreement:

On-campus housing may be available for students returning to campus who have not completed a housing agreement (e.g., returning juniors and seniors, etc.). Because spring vacancies are available based on students departing at the end of the fall semester, we are not able to guarantee the availability of a specific community or room type (ie-single rooms). If you are only interested in a specific type of housing placement, we would advise that you contact our office to inquire about availability.

Please note: Your completed housing agreement is a binding agreement between you and the university for the duration of the Spring 2024 semester. Therefore, residents are responsible for all costs associated with housing unless they have been officially released from their agreement by the Associate Director of Residence Life. Requests to be released from the agreement must be submitted by the deadline published in the 2023-2024 Student Handbook, will be granted only for extraordinary circumstances and may result in a penalty fee.
