Expanded Third-Year Campus Housing
John Carroll University requires students to live on campus for their first three years. This policy seeks to provide a bridge for third-year students that would on the one hand ensure a more structured residence experience, while on the other hand encouraging further independence.
Toward that end, JCU intends to build new upperclass housing that will offer this year’s entering freshman fully furnished, adult-style living quarters and amenities. The planned apartments will reflect our current standards for professionally managed and best-in-class secure student living. While we can guarantee availability for third year students, we look forward ultimately to providing housing to any seniors who wish to remain on campus.
Why Close Counts
Current third- and fourth-year students who commit to university housing confirm why proximity matters. These students consistently access educationally beneficial activities — including academic support — and maintain higher rates of academic success.
As a Jesuit university, we invest time and resources in helping you to grow spiritually — regardless of chosen faith. Living on campus allows for deeper and more sustained engagement with wellness, ministry, and student leadership.
