We are very excited to welcome accepted SHU Pirates and their families at Pirate Preview on Saturday, April 8th! This day will be a bit longer than the usual Open Houses. There will be RA-led tours throughout the day in Boland, Aquinas and in Xavier Halls. Blue Crew will be leading tours across campus and through the University Center. Remember to say hello and be welcoming to our guests while in the halls, but also around campus! See your hall director if you have any questions.
If you’re taking summer classes or have a University-affiliated job or internship, you’re welcome to sign up for Summer Housing.
Summer Housing will be assigned in South Boland Hall this year. Students who wish to apply for summer housing may do so through the Summer Housing Application under the applications tab on their Housing Profile on PirateNet. There is no housing deposit required.
Summer room assignments are made “hotel style” meaning that room assignments will be made at the time of check in. Students wishing to be roommates should plan to check in together.
Xavier Hall is a seven story building that houses approximately 500 upperclass students. The building is divided into two sections; the Tri-Level on floors 1-3 and the Tower on floors 2-7.
The majority of rooms in Xavier are doubles, with one double occupancy room being connected to another double occupancy room by a shared bathroom. There are limited amount of triple occupancy rooms in the Tower, each with a private bathroom.
Xavier Hall can host up to 6 Priests in Residence, a pastoral resource created to help residents connect with the Catholic mission at home. Xavier Hall also hosts the Sophomore Discovery Program (SDP) on the third floor. SDP is available to rising Sophomores who apply for focused and specialized programming that will connect them to the campus experience they had during their first year.
There are 12 Resident Assistants in Xavier Hall.
The Complex, made up of Cabrini, Neumann and Serra Halls, are three suite-style buildings designated for upperclassmen in room selection.
The Complex houses approximately 550 upperclass students. Cabrini Hall has 5 floors while Neumann and Serra have 3.
The occupancy of the suites in the Complex vary, but this is a general break down of the style of suites available during room selection –
- 7 person suites, made up of two double occupancy rooms, one triple occupancy room and a suite area. The triple occupancy room is either a standard triple or an economy triple. Standard triples come with three sets of furniture for all students. Economy triples house three students, with a reduced housing rate for all occupants because the room does not have a third wardrobe. The majority of economy triples in the Complex were provided updated, space-efficient furniture in the Summer of 2016.
- 4 person suites, made up of two double occupancy rooms and a suite area.
The halls in the Complex have common areas on each floor for students to use as well as designated study spaces in all three buildings. There are 11 Resident Assistants assigned to the Complex, one for each floor in each building.
