The Seton Residential Center on the College of Mount St. Joseph campus has the capacity to house over 500 students in rooms that range from single and double rooms in traditional corridor-style hallways to suites for two, three, or four residents. All undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to live in Seton Center. Although the Seton Residential Center at the College of Mount St. Joseph has been used primarily to house undergraduate students, graduate students have frequently been able to successfully acclimate to our residence area with the right housing arrangements and placement. Some floors and areas have the tendency to draw quieter or older students, so placement in these areas can work well for the graduate student lifestyle.

The College’s housing policy states that all single, full-time, undergraduate students under the age of 21 or having fewer than 59 credit hours completed prior to the first day of class of any given semester, are required to live on campus and participate in a meal program offered by the Mount’s food service. Requests to live off campus from freshman and sophomore students who do not meet the above requirements must be approved in advance by the Assistant Dean of Students.
Exceptions are made for students residing with their parents/ legal guardian in the parents’/legal guardian’s principal residence within a 35-mile radius of the College campus as determined by an official state map. Students living off campus who fail to meet either of these criteria and do not apply for permission to break their housing contract will be assessed the lowest room and board rates for that semester regardless of whether they complete a housing contract. Questions about the housing policy should be directed to the Office of Residence Life at (513) 244-4304.
