Living and Learning at Saint Francis.

Being part of a vibrant residential community is a significant aspect of the overall college experience.

Where You’ll Live:
Our Residence Halls

The University of Saint Francis offers three residential options: traditional-style rooms, apartments and suites. No matter where you live on campus, though, you’ll be part of a supporting learning community and have access to the amenities and resources you need.

Traditional Rooms

Our traditional-style rooms in Trinity and Bonzel Halls are what might first come to mind when you think about life at college: two students in a room with shared bathrooms and common spaces.


Reserved for upper-level students, our co-ed apartments in Padua Hall feature five or six single bedrooms, a living room, a kitchenette, and a shared bathroom (with private stalls and showers).


Typically for upper-level students, Clare Hall’s suites consist of two double bedrooms connected and a connecting bathroom. Suite-style living is co-ed by floor, and features shared kitchenettes and social spaces.

Residence Hall Programming and Leadership

Resident assistants, better known as RAs, lead educational and social events several times a month for their floors.

Dining on Campus

Saint Francis offers three on-campus dining locations, from traditional sit-down meals to grab-and-go options.

Getting Involved on Campus

With dozens of student organizations, intramural sports, leadership opportunities, and campus events, you’ll stay busy!

A Closer Look at Residential Life

From move-in day to graduation day, we’ll do our best to make you feel at home at the University of Saint Francis. 

Move-in Day for Incoming Students

It’ll be a year of firsts, and it starts with Move-in Day. On this fast-paced day, students and their families will find assistance from faculty and staff members as they load in their personal belongings, rearrange their rooms, and get to know their new neighbors. 

Campus Safety & Security

Named by Niche as one of the safest colleges in Indiana, Saint Francis prioritizes campus security. Residential halls are equipped with card access technology, and our campus is patrolled 24/7. Additionally, there’s always an RA and professional residence life staff member on call. 

Health & Wellness Support 

All students have access to on-campus health and wellness services, including mental health counseling. Spiritual guidance through Campus Ministry is also available.
