Welcome to the residence halls at John Carroll University!  The core of Residence Life is community and learning. Asking the questions “Who am I?” and “Who am I in relation to others?,” we strive to build strong communities where students are connected and engaged in learning that lasts a lifetime.  Residence hall living presents students with opportunities to:

  • Feel a sense of belonging and community and develop the whole person according to Jesuit tradition, “head and heart, intellect and feelings,” providing a desire to learn from every experience;
  • Make daily choices that affect their health and safety;
  • Explore differences and witness diversity of thought, perspective, and experience in action, and
  • Engage in informed political and social action, rooted in personal responsibility as members of their communities.
