A big step in college life is living on campus. Cabrini places first-year students in Xavier, East, or Woodcrest Hall. For sophomores, juniors and seniors, you have the choice to live in South, West, Dixon, McManus, or Casey house. Seniors also have the option to live in the Cabrini Apartment Complex. Some students also choose to live off-campus in nearby apartments or houses.
South Residence Hall is where I lived my spring semester of junior year. To live here you should make sure you have a group of 4 people (including you). There are two bedrooms that connect to a small common area which has some counter space and a sink as well as a bathroom area that is shared among the four students.
You have control over the temperature in your rooms, closet and drawer space, as well as a desk. There are also some built-in hooks for clothing in the bathroom areas. Unlike residence halls that have bathrooms that a whole floor of students share, in South Hall you will need to provide your toiletries, shower curtain, and other housing commodities.
The building has elevator access, a ramp entrance, automatic doors, three different lounging areas, one on each floor. Trash rooms are also available on every floor. This is the newest residence hall making it more appealing to most residents. On the first floor, there is a full kitchen with a community fridge and also a laundry room with plenty of washers and dryers.

I recommend living in South Residence Hall even though parking can be an obstacle. You’re right behind the tennis courts and mansion making a nice view. It’s a straight walk to Iadarola, The Chapel, Dixon Center, and it’s an easy stroll to the Library and Founder's Hall!
