Campus Life


“Residence has been the best part of university for me. It was in residence that I met my best friends, napped between classes, and gained valuable skills through my role of Residence Assistant during my second and third years on residence. I always appreciated the fact that Saint Mary’s campus is located within one city block – it made getting to classes from residence much easier through the walkways connecting all academic university buildings, especially on rainy and snowy days! I highly recommend living in residence, especially for first year students. I know off-campus students have regretted losing the opportunity to meet friends through living in residence and being a part of the community here.”

"What most students don't understand about living in Residence is the community among your peers that is easily achievable if you are willing to involve yourself.  While in residence you live with roughly 1200 other students, and having the opportunity to meet so many people through both being a student and an employee through the university has given me an entirely different perspective on campus lifestyle, as well as the people skills that will be considered an advantage in years to come!"

"I highly encourage everyone to experience life in residence at Saint Mary's University."
