Saint Joseph’s Hall

Open to incoming and sophomore male and female students

Est. 1898
Saint Joseph’s Hall, fondly known as Saint Joe’s, was purchased by the Christian Brothers in 1950. The hall was remodeled at that time and again in 1998. Saint Joseph’s is home to approximately 60 men and women, with single-sex floors. There is more variance in the size and shape of individual rooms in this hall than any other hall on campus allowing for both double and single rooms. Currently, the art department uses portions of the hall for classroom space, making Saint Joe’s the perfect place for the artistically inclined.

Open to:

  • 1st floor sophomore - men
  • 2nd floor new students - men
  • 2 1/2 floor sophomore - women
  • 3rd floor new students - women

Common areas included in Saint Joe’s

  • a large lounge
  • computer room with two computers and a printer
  • laundry room with three washers and dryers ($0.75/load wash, $0.75/load dry)
  • a community kitchen with a stove, oven, microwave and refrigerator

Traditional community bathrooms and shower areas are located on each floor of this hall.
