Residence Life

Complete the 2019-2020 Housing Contract

Welcome to Residence Life at Holy Cross! We are committed to fostering a Catholic living-learning faith community, in which we strive to provide the highest quality residential experience. This is accomplished through providing an environment where one achieves an examined life through challenge, responsibility, academic inquiry, and service. The goal is to transition students into educational partners who understand that each student is responsible for his/her own experience. We believe a commitment to open communication and regular contact with the residents and Residence Life Staff members is crucial in building a proactive & dynamic residential experience. All Student Life Staff, including Campus Ministry, Student Activities, Campus Safety and Security, Athletics, and Student Counseling Services are also integral to the Residence Life program.

The residential program will accommodate over 270 men and women, in James, Basil, Anselm, and North halls, along with the South Hall and Pulte Hall apartments. In addition, Holy Cross College offer rentals to upperclassmen through the College to University Edge, an apartment complex located 1 mile north of campus.

The close proximity of the residence halls to classrooms, St. Joseph Chapel, Pfeil Recreation Center, McKenna Library, Siegfried Dining Hall, Hammes Bookstore, computer lab, and faculty offices provides an ideal collegiate environment for residents.

For academic year 2018-2019, men will reside in Anselm, Basil, South, and Pulte Halls, and women will reside in James and North Halls. All residents participate in food service with a single charge for room and board.
