Living on campus should be a highlight of your college experience, and at Xavier, we are dedicated to making sure that our living and learning environments are the best they can be. We guarantee housing for your first two years at Xavier, and whether you choose to live on campus for only two years or for all four, our team is committed to providing you an amazing and safe experience here.

Xavier students love the convenience of living on-campus, but also praise the 24-hour safety monitoring, the option of several different housing styles and dining options, as well as plenty of luxuries such as wireless Internet access, state-of-the-art cable, and worry-free maintenance in all halls and apartments.  We know you will love your experience!

Whether you are an incoming freshman or a transfer student looking into our housing options, a current student looking for answers, or a parent, we strive to provide care and personalized attention to all of your housing needs.
