Spring 2022 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, which will be available in November. Also, please review the housing selection process and agreement information for incoming first-year students and new transfer students.
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 2022 Housing Preference form, which will also be available in November. 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 2021-2022 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 2022 Housing Preference form, which will be available in November.
We will begin to process housing placements for returning students in November 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 2021-2022 housing agreement:
On-campus housing is 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 prior to completing a housing agreement.
To secure on-campus housing, you will need to submit a housing agreement through The Nest. All housing assignments are made on the basis of the date our office receives the housing agreement, therefore, expedient attention to this form is advised. Residence Life will begin making housing assignments for students with a recently submitted housing agreement in November.
Please note: Your completed housing agreement is a binding agreement between you and the university for the duration of the spring 2022 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 2021-2022 Student Handbook, will be granted only for extraordinary circumstances and may result in a penalty fee.
