Residential Life offers you more than just a place where you study and sleep. Your Residence Hall is a living and learning community designed to help you grow in all aspects of your life at one of the top liberal arts schools. Our goal is to be an extension of the Sacred Heart University classrooms by being the place where you continue conversations from class, work on group projects, or spend time studying by yourself.
The residential halls are an extension of the classroom and where students will spend their other time while at college. Students find that the residential halls are their home away from home. While living in the same location as their classmates and peers, relationships form that could last a lifetime. Students at Sacred Heart University will share a hallway, a bathroom and a bedroom.
