First, let’s talk location.

All of the traditional and apartment-style residence halls at Saint Peter’s University are a few minutes walk from your classes. Plus you are just a PATH train ride away from New York City and its museums, cultural events, shopping and so much more.

But there is so much more to living on campus.

Living on campus greatly enhances your experience here at Saint Peter’s University by providing many opportunities to get involved. Whether it is a lecture at noon, a group meeting in the evening or a spontaneous gathering at midnight, you will be around to participate. You can step out of your front door for classes, meals, sporting events, or prayer. Campus living is a wonderful and unique experience, a catalyst for personal growth and independence. It provides innumerable opportunities to live with others different from yourself, to become a leader, to improve communication skills, to manage conflict successfully, to make sound decisions, and to broaden your perspective of the world. We invite you to reach beyond yourself and take some risks willingly. Meet your challenges and responsibilities honestly.

As part of the Saint Peter’s residential community, you will have roommates and floormates who will become lifelong friends.  Every day will teach you about yourself, and who you are, who you want to be, and how you can get there.

If you are considering joining us as a resident student on the campus of Saint Peter’s University, please feel welcome to use the Housing Application.
