First-year students are housed in Woodcrest, Xavier, or East Residence Hall. Returning and transfer students are housed in East Residence Hall, the residential houses, West Residence Hall, or the Cabrini Apartment Complex.
Most students are housed in double-occupancy rooms with one roommate. However, some students are housed in single-occupancy and triple-occupancy rooms.
Single-occupancy rooms are reserved first for students with a documented medical need. Members of the Honors Living Learning Community (LLC) are housed in East Residence Hall. Xavier Hall houses all other LLC students and many non-LLC students as well.
Because of the diverse needs of our students, Residence Life cannot guarantee placement in a particular building or area.
New Resident Students New residents receive their room assignment (building and room number) and roommate contact information during the summer—via their official @cabrini.edu email account—after they complete housing paperwork via Cabrini Vision.
Students who have problems accessing the Roommate Questionnaire via CabriniVision may instead download a PDF and submit it directly to Residence Life.
New students who attended Summer Orientation will receive their housing assignments by July 1, 2013.
For all other students, assignments are released according to the following schedule:
Housing Assignment ChangesIf you receive an initial room assignment from Residence Life and you want to request a change to that assignment, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are approved for an assignment change, you may have to wait until the next date that assignments are released before receiving new room and/or roommate information.
Assignment changes are not guaranteed. As Cabrini College is dedicated to promoting an inclusive and respectful community, requests for an assignment change on the basis of a roommate’s race, disability, age, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, or national origin will not be approved.
Students who have a special housing need because of a disability or medical condition have the opportunity to disclose their condition and request accommodations on either the Roommate Questionnaire or Housing Information Form.
Disclosure of a disability is voluntary and the information will be maintained on a confidential basis. Written documentation from an appropriate professional is required.
Please note that any and all medical requests for special accommodations, including air conditioning, must be accompanied by a note from the treating physician and must be submitted to Residence Life before students are placed in an assignment.
Returning Resident StudentsCurrent first-year students, sophomores, juniors, and seniors can apply for housing for the next year each spring.
Upperclass students who apply for housing receive a random, computer-generated lottery number that determines the order they'll select housing.
Factors such as previous housing, assignment to a triple-occupancy room, difficulties with roommates, academic standing, participation in special activities, and other factors are not considered.
Lottery numbers are emailed to students’ @cabrini.edu email addresses.
Attendance at the housing-lottery number-generation event is optional. Students who choose to attend will not receive their lottery numbers before students who do not attend.
Applicants participate in “Room Pick” and finalize their housing by signing a housing agreement and submitting a $200 housing deposit, due at the time they select housing.
A very limited number of single rooms are available.
Certain spaces in each residence hall are reserved for medically necessary special accommodations.
Students who do not complete their housing application, do not participate in Room Pick, or are unable to secure a space in housing during Room Pick may be placed on a housing waitlist.
