Living on campus is the best way to experience and be a part of the Holy Cross community. That’s why more than 90% of Holy Cross students live in the residence halls. By spending time outside the classroom with peers, students become immersed in a 24/7 learning environment that constantly encourages them to ask more. On one hall, a literary discussion spills over into the common area, where a group of science majors weigh in with a different perspective. In another, a chance conversation in the hallway leads to a new thesis for a paper. This process begins during Montserrat and continues throughout your time on campus.
Holy Cross students live in one of 11 residence halls, which include a variety of living options — from singles to suites. All of the residence halls also have study areas, community living rooms, and shared kitchens. Each floor is staffed by a Resident Assistant (RA) who helps maintain a healthy environment that promotes academic success, individual growth, and respect for others. In addition, Community Development Coordinators, who are full-time live-in staff professionals, help create an environment that fosters principles of academic excellence, student development, and community responsibility.
