Residence halls play an important role in resident students’ lives.
Residential students spend more time in their residence hall than any other place on campus.
Cabrini offers a lot of options in residence halls, from single, double, triple, and quad rooms in co-ed halls and houses, to shared suites and apartments that can house up to six (6) residents.
All residence halls at Cabrini have a professional staff member or graduate assistant who oversees the building and at least one resident assistant who lives in the hall.
Meeting life-long friends, making connections with the university, and easy access to campus resources are just a few of the advantages to living on campus.
It is also our belief that providing residents with out-of-the-classroom educational opportunities enables students to become well-rounded individuals.
