Residence Life | Franciscan University of Steubenville
  • Residence Life Welcomes You Home!

    Welcome (or welcome back!) to Franciscan University of Steubenville—we are excited to have you as a part of our campus community! Living on campus at Franciscan allows you to immerse yourself in a unique, vibrant Catholic community like no other. You will be supported and challenge to strive for Christian maturity. Every aspect of our life together is guided by the Law of Love.

    The Residence Life program is designed to help you achieve your academic, spiritual, and personal goals. We are committed to supporting your vocation as a student and to fostering a safe, comfortable, and dynamic community life. Because a strong community depends on concern for the common good of all, residents are expected to maintain high standards of personal conduct. Behavior should reflect maturity and respect for the dignity of your fellow students.

    Our pledge to you

    The Residence Life Staff is available to serve you, challenge you, and support you during your time at Franciscan University. Please get to know them and your fellow residents. We firmly believe that students by themselves can survive, but that students in a community environment thrive. Be sure to make your needs known to someone on your hall staff. Be sure to respect the needs of your fellow residents.

    Be a builder! Build up one another every chance you get, encourage one another, challenge one another—work together to build a community that you can be proud of—work to build a truly Christ Centered Community.

    We are looking forward to this new academic year with great anticipation. May God Bless you.

Franciscan University of Steubenville is no ordinary university, and a Franciscan education is no ordinary education. Rather, it's an education as rigorous and demanding as it is faithful--an education that challenges you intellectually, forms you professionally, and feeds you spiritually.


You can help Franciscan lead the way in providing a faithfully Catholic education!
