When living in the residence halls at The Catholic University of America, you will consistently find a focus on faith, civility, values, and personal development throughout the residential experience.
Residence Life's primary goal in the residential communities is to assist you in building connections to the larger university community in hopes that you will become an active participant in University life and gain a greater appreciation for community values and service. Residence Life is committed to creating residential communities that support the University's mission, values, and Catholic identity, and that offer a variety of intellectual, physical, spiritual, social, and academic experiences and opportunities.
Residence Life works with the more than 2,150 students that live on campus at Catholic University to create a strong residential experience. The department provides staffing in the residence halls with 54 Resident Assistants and 6 professional live-in staff members. In addition, other student and professional staff work to create a welcoming and supportive community that supports the university's mission and provides opportunities for residents to broaden their horizons.
As a student living in this community setting, it is as much your responsibility to become involved as it is Residence Life's responsibility to provide involvement opportunities. Residence Life encourages students to explore the variety of ways to get involved on campus and tailor their experience to their personal interests. While living on campus has many freedoms, when living in the residence halls students also accept responsibility for maintaining community standards and civility in the residence halls.
