Hello, and 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, and Student Counseling Services are also integral to the residence life program.

The residential program will accommodate 240 men and women, in James, Basil and Anselm halls, along with the South Hall and Pulte Hall apartments. 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.

Men will reside in Anselm, Basil and Pulte halls and women in James and South halls. All residents participate in food service with a single charge for room and board.

Holy Cross does not enforce a curfew, but does limit the hours at which residents may visit the rooms of members of the opposite sex. Alcohol is NOT permitted anywhere on the Holy Cross campus, nor are students permitted to bring alcohol themed decorations to the residence halls. For more information concerning Residence Life policies please refer to the student handbook.

Holy Cross residence halls provide convenient access to full dining services, a chapel, laundry rooms and comfortable student lounge areas. Individual student rooms are designed to accommodate one, two or three residents and are equipped with bed(s), wardrobe(s), and desk(s). Nearly all rooms have sinks, but very few have private baths. Pulte and South Hall apartments will house four or five students in two bedroom units, with two baths, a kitchen and a living room.
