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