Assisi Heights - Residence Life | Franciscan University of Steubenville
  • Assisi Heights

    Assisi Heights is a complex of apartment-style residence halls built as public housing, acquired by Franciscan University, and refurbished for use by our students.

    En suite kitchens and the neighborhood style of the Assisi Heights community give residents a different, more autonomous style of residence life from a traditional residence hall.

    Philosophy Statement for Assisi Heights

    The University recognizes that its ultimate purpose is to graduate men and women who are able to take a mature, responsible approach to life. It is the further purpose of the University, publicly identified as a Catholic and a Franciscan institution, to promote the moral, spiritual, and religious values of its students.” Recognizing that upperclassmen and graduate students have progressed on this road to maturity, student housing at Assisi Heights affords residents the opportunity to exercise freedom and responsibility in an environment that is less regulated than traditional residence halls. At the same time, students are expected to live in accordance with the mission of Franciscan University and are encouraged to lives of holiness and ongoing conversion. Policies governing this community reflect this dual understanding.

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.
